Tilda Wants a Smooch Under the Mistletoe at Friday Sketchers 79



Gosh, we have finally made it to Friday...So Happy Day!! After several days of dreary rain, it finally looks like a delightful weekend here. For those of you who are already having snow...I am NOT envious!! And I know that many of the US folks will be busy this weekend preparing for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday next Thursday. So I wish everyone a wonderful weekend, wherever you are and whatever you might be doing!!

Friday Sketchers 79 is being hosted this week by the supremely talented and lovely Jeanette from Canada who has provided us with a fun and challenging sketch. We would love for you to visit us at Friday Sketchers to see the sample cards made by the marvelous Design Team Members and then join us this week in sharing your interpretation of Jeanette's sketch. Please be sure to link your posting using MrLinky and then link back to Friday Sketchers in your posting.

For my DT Sample Card, I have used Bazzill for the base, SU for all double matting, and the DP is all Best Creation compliments of Suzan. That darling little Tilda Under the Mistletoe is from the new Christmas Collection and is arriving very soon at Magnolia-licious and she is just darling!!! And who wouldn't want to give her a little smooch with two pockets full of delicious looking cookies????

Tilda was stamped twice and colored with Copics on Cryogen White. One was cut out and propped up on dimensional tape, then adding Diamond Glaze to her shoes (along with mini pearls), cookies, and mistletoe berries. For the horizontal treatment I used red tulle and a ribbon with contrasting dots to the DP underneath. The front was finished off with a couple of pins, dew drops, holly charm and tiny red rhinestones.


The inside is very simple using the same DP and ribbons and with the addition of several simple MS holly and bells stickers.

AND NOW.......


CONGRATULATIONS to Jodie from Oz who is the winner of my Magnolia-licious Blog Hop Sweet Stuff!!! My sincere thanks to everyone for participating in the Blog Hop on Monday and for leaving a comment on my blog. Jodie please contact me before Sunday, November 22 at Noon EST or I will have to select another winner.

Just a reminder that I am participating in a Belles 'n Whistles Blog Hop on Monday, November 23 to introduce the new line of Elisabeth Bell's Christmas Stamps...so I hope you can all come and visit. There might even be lots of surprises along the way!!

My sincere thanks to each of you for dropping by today and I hope you will let me know what you think about my card. I wish for you a marvelous weekend and will look forward to the next time we meet. Take care and be safe...Big hugs...
