ChRiStMaS In ApRiL

Welcome to the April installment of the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop.  Today I am posting a card I made for my mom to hand out at Christmas time.
This card uses some of the more "traditional" Christmas colors of red and green with some cream.  I really do love how it turned out.
I colored my image, Merry Christmas Tilda, with Tim Holtz distress inks and added some red and green Stickles to the words MERRY CHRISTMAS.

My paper is from Close To My Heart
The edge punch I used is from Martha Stewart's Punch-Around-the-page punches
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
The candy cane and wreath are from Roberts Crafts
The ribbon is from JoAnn's Crafts

January 25th...New Year, New Blog Hop!

Happy 25th of January everyone!

Can you believe it's almost the end of January?  Where did the month go?

This month for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Round Blog Hop I am posting a favorite card of mine using Princess Tilda which can be found in Diana's store here.

Ok, so I made this card a while ago so I'm a bit rusty on where some of my products came from but I'll do my best :) 
I colored my image with distress inks.  Paper is from my stash.  Ribbon was from JoAnn's Crafts.  Flowers are from  The beaded garland is from Hobby Lobby.  

I absolutely love how this card turned out, it's quite possibly one of my favorites.  
and one of the inside
