Happy 25th of April...

What's so special about the 25th of April you ask?  Is it my birthday? No, is it my Anniversary?  No...It's the Christmas All Year Round Magnolia Blog Hop!

My card today is featuring "Sitting With Candy Tilda" which can be purchased at the Magnolia Store here.

The paper I used is from my stash, I remember getting it for $1 at Wal-Mart but that's about it.  The Cardstock is from CTMH as well as the crocheted flowers and the sentiment.  The paper flowers are from Prima (don't they look like little poinsettias?) The brads are just from my stash of brads and the metal flower accent was found in my "embellishment" box but I really love how it looks on this card. The twigs were punched from my Martha Stewart punch.

K, here's where it go tricky!  I stamped my Tilda first ok...Then I stamped her again onto a separate piece of paper and cut her out for my "mask", I then inked up my steps and positioned them where I *hoped* they would look like she was sitting right on them and not halfway down a step LOL.  Viola, I did it!!  It worked the first time (but will probably never work again).  I was so pleased that I didn't have to do it again!

I then colored her with my copics (sorry I didn't write down the numbers, gonna have to remember that from now on).  I couldn't get into her little candy canes without getting them all red so when I was done I took my white pen and went over the red and now it looks like a real candy cane minus the peppermint smell!

Now, lets hop on over to Kathy Curry's blog and see what wonderful Christmas card she has created.

Have a Simply Magnolia day!
