It is Christmas Time at Just Magnolias!

Brrrrr... it is cold outside! LOL I know many of you would laugh at me. But 39 in South Texas is COLD! A Wet Cold! And cold really starts making it feel like Christmas. And that is just what The Just Magnolias Challenge is asking for this week! Christmas Cards!

I don't have very many Christmas Magnolias... but a few winter ones that I figured would work. I love the bell ringer! Reminds me of the Salvation Army Bell ringers here that you find in front of every store this time of year... ringing the bell asking for change to help those that need it. So the bell ringing Tilda it was for my Christmas card!

I masked her and then stamped one of my Favorite backgrounds! this is from Alota Rubber Stamps and is the "Wall/Window" Scenery stamp  - So I stamped Tilda, then masked her and stamped the Wall stamp and then colored it all with my Copics. Now the fun part is the snow... which of course you can't see very well in the photo!!! Darn it!!! It looks so cool in person! It is Martha Stewart Snow glitter and really it looks so real!

I then went to work on my card -

A red card base, white card stock mats and then Basic Grey papers... yummy Warm Christmas colors For so added "drama" LOL I punched two different Martha Stewart Border punches - the Extra Large trellis and the regular sized trellis - I sewed everything dow with a dark brown thread and random sewing.

The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber stamps and I think is perfect for my little bell ringer!

You just have to visit the Just Magnolias Challenge site and see all the other DT Christmas cards! And the prize this week is sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund and the prize is an awesome $20 voucher to spend in their store!! That is a great prize!

Better get my day going... gotta get the courage to go out and fill all the water buckets for the animals and make sure everyone is good on hay! Brrr... LOL
