A very merry un-Christmas to you!

Hello my blogging friends! 
Well yesterday was Summer today is definitely Autumn! It's not cold to be fair, but it's really windy! you know that creepy type of wind that really sets the trees going, like in the Omen when you just know someone is about to get it!! Lol!! or is that just me in day 8 of my solitude letting my imagination get the better of me! I noticed I was talking to myself yesterday!!!.......well... even more than usual!! Lol!! One bonus the the house has never been cleaner sorry Jenny !! consider me slapped!! Rofl!!
Anyhoo merry un-Christmas!!! yes folks today is my first Christmas card of the year!! The challenge over at Totally Tilda this fortnight is to use a magnolia sentiment, along with of course, your lovely tilda stamps!
This is the first time I have inked up this wee beauty! and isn't she a doll!!  She is coloured with my copics, the mat is a spellbinders die, I love this one! the snowflake is a Marianne die and the papers are MME and of course the stamps are Magnolia! I have added some glamour dust to the snowflakes and some twinklets under her feet and a little on her boots!

  1. Gorgeous Christmas card Jacqui! I love it! Laura x

  2. LOL - know what you mean about the challenges; some of them want loads of little details, don't they? I don't think I've seen this Tilda before and she's gorgeous. It's like November here today and yesterday wasn't too good either. I think SW Scotland is just going to get the crappy weather no matter what direction the jet stream moves in. Hope the weather improves for you up there. Hugs, Tracey x

  3. Oh hunny, she is gorgeous! What a little cracker. Fabulous colourwork and I adore the papers. Simply brilliant. Hugs Sxx

  4. Nearly made the same mistake myself Jacqui!!! Beautiful card and great colours. Hope you have a great day.

    Hugs Ali x

  5. You could tell TOMIC that the stars are all the reflections from your gleaming home. That would count, wouldn't it. Those glossy bench tops, that gleaming fridge door and those sparkling shower screens are all blinding me. LOL
    I know that you really can't wait till your two boys come home to you and mess up all that neatness.
    Ta so much for the belly laugh and the link. Hugs Jenny xoxoxoxoxo
    PS: Love the card!
