It's Christmas in July...


Today over at the Magnolia-licious yahoo group we are celebrating Christmas in July!
Every 25th of the month Magnolia hosts a Christmas All Year Round blog hop and you're invited!

Starting with Cheryl's Blog you can hop through the Christmas-y creations one by one and feel the chill of the holidays...Can you believe we are half way to Christmas?  Where does the time go?

If you started here please go back to the beginning so you don't miss a thing.  If you can from Glenda's Blog then you're on the right track!



Today my card features Tilda Santa's Little Helper from the 2009 So Jolly/Under The Mistletoe Collection.  I used my Tim Holtz distress inks to color her in except her face, I used E00 and E02 from Copic.  The candy cane is a digital image that was perfect for this card.  It was also colored with distress ink.
The paper I used is from my computer, there's no company, I just searched for Christmas paper and it popped up.  I absolutely love it.  I saved it to my computer and printed it on watercolor paper, I love the texture.
The flowers are from Crafta.com and Wild Orchid Crafts.com.
The edge punch for the card was from Making Memories, I believe...
The crystal garland was from my local craft store and I colored it with some distress re-inker (raisin) to give it some color.
The PEACE charm on the top, right corner of the card is from my stash of charms.

Here is a close-up of little Tilda:

 Now lets hop on over to Kathy Curry's Blog and see what wonderful creation she has for us today!

Have a Simply Magnolia Day!
