A Fun Card, Some NEWS, and SWEET STUFF!!!

 
A very happy Wednesday to everyone! Gosh, I know that many of you are so happy that the week is half over! My thoughts have certainly been with those millions of people who have suffered at the wrath of "SANDY" and hope that things can start getting back to normal real soon. We only had horrific winds, rain, and threats of snow. Amazingly, every area just north of me had plenty of snow so I will consider myself very fortunate.
 
My card today is one that was so much fun to make. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from Papermania's Home for Christmas paper pad---and I LOVE these DPs!!! I used the darling little Joyful Tilda from the A Christmas Story Collection available at Magnolia-licious. And gosh, there is already another collection on taps at Diana's shop--The NEW Nativity Collection. Tilda was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics and Flexmarkers, adding Stickles to the flowers in her hair and for the lace on her dress, Glossy Accents to the teapot, and silver MS Glitter Pen to the tray. For the horizontal I used organza ribbon tied into a double flat bow and if you look carefully you can also see that I have used one of my newest FAVORITE products from Whimsy Stamps called Lovely Tape. It is so easy to use and is so gorgeous. It is available in different sizes and styles and in both white and ivory. I also used a couple of Vintage Flourishes diecuts (teapot and teacup and saucer) which were designed by Jolanda Bergmans of  Noor! Design. I could not believe how much the teapot resembles the one Tilda is holding!!! I rolled both of the diecuts around a thin pencil before adhering them to give them much more dimension. Although they look very dark in the photo, they are actually a dark olive green to match the matting and DP. To finish the card, I added pearls to soften the outside corners and a couple of little gingerbread boy cookies for the image panel.
 
AND...
 
Now for some NEWS!!!
 
 
My sweet and very talented friend, SUZAN, is celebrating her one year blog anniversary with some special candy!!! CONGRATULATIONS, Suzan, and best wishes for many more years of your lovely crafting!!!! If you haven't visited her A Garden of Wishes, you are in for a real treat. Her detailed work is so breathtakingly beautiful that you will want to see each and every one of her creations!!! I hope you will jump over and give your congrats to Suzan and throw your name in for her WONDERFUL holiday candy!!!!
 
AND...
 
for some SWEET STUFF!!!
 
I told you all that I was re-organizing...which is very much an overstatement...that means that I have bought tons more clear boxes to store STUFF!!!  lolol...but I found an extra Magnolia Mistletoe Lace die that I would love to send to one of my FOLLOWERS. If you would like to be in for the draw, all you have to do is leave a quick comment below before Friday, November 2 at 8 AM EST. Good Luck!!

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, be safe and have a delightful rest of the week!! Big hugs!!

Hi Jacque~

Wow--imagine a stamp made that represents you. That's what this stamp does for me. I have long hair, a poochy stomach, and my hubby and I have tea just about every evening with shortbread!

I think I missed what the teapot and cup and saucer are made of and where you purchased them. I just love what you have done with this card, Jacque!
