Happy Friday!!

YIKES!!! ...like many of you, I suspect, I'm frantically trying to play "catch up" with my cardmaking. Fortunately, I have just a few left to make...including 5 mini-cards for our 5 grandkids...using Mini Maggies available in North America only at Magnolia-licious!! Ohhhh...can't wait...these little darlin's are just such fun to color!! I also have to finish making a card for my sister, Dee, and her DH...but that won't get posted here until she receives it because SHE PEEKS!!!!!!! LOL!

So...here's my latest holiday creation...featuring Tilda w/a Christmas Tree...she can be found at Magnolia-licious HERE. And inside you'll find one of the darling "Mini-Maggies" called "Sparkling Tilda"...also available at Magnolia-licious HERE.


Here's a fun, semi-artsy, side-view...


And a peek at the inside...


My card recipe:
Cardstock: Blushing Bride & Baja Breeze (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento) & Baja Breeze (SU)
DPs: From the SU 2010 Christmas Collection
Flowers, rhinestones, gem, & ribbon: my stash
Sentiment: Holiday Ticket Sentiments (Whimsy)
Dies: Doohickey tag & lace edge (Magnolia), Spellbinders Labels 10
Spica pens, stickles, & a spritz of "Frosted Sparkle" Sheer Shimmer Spritz
Copics:


I'm entering this little cutie into 7 Kids College Fund Challenge HERE. The theme is Winter Wonderland...and I think the DP and shimmerz remind me of snow!! So, there ya go! LOL! I'm also entering the Cute Card Thursday Challenge HERE. Wish me luck!

So, that's it for now, kids! Thanks so much for stopping by for a little peek. See you sooner than later...Holiday hugs for all of you!
