Yuk, It's officially winter!! But that means not long til Christmas!!!

Today I have a card I made with one of the lovely new Magnolia Christmas stamps!
Wow 2 in a row I am happy with!!! Although as usual I am not so happy this the photography!!! I have followed that sketch over at CLP and made it by the skin of me teeth!! lol!! the sketch is fairly complicated so I have kept the embellies fairly simple, one of the layers is muslin but it's a little difficult to see!

Basicgrey DT - anything goes

So of course it's..... Tilda time!!! Lol!!!
I initially started this card for just magnolia's pink challenge then realised it would be closed by the time I post my basicgrey challenge. D'oh!!! he he !! I was really pleased with the way this card came out!! and it's funny because normally it takes me a ridiculous amount of time to go from coloured image to finished product, but I was losing light!! and I really rushed!! and it came out better than normal!! well if you followed that mighty sentance you're a better woman than me!! ROFL!!
I may be making slightly less sense than normal because its 11.46pm and I am half asleep and Logie and I have just watched Paranormal activity 2!!! Guess who's sleeping with the lights on tonight!!! and it won't be no.1 son!!
