Tilda with Snowflake

Good afternoon everyone! I found some sheets of Figgy Pudding papers in my stash and I really like the red and blue/green color combination, so I decided to showcase this lovely Tilda in the required colors. This is actually a tea light card, but instead to tea candles, I decided to place chocolates in the little box. My great-niece wants me to make six treat cards for her and there is not much time left! Only 3 more weeks until Christmas....yikes.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I really appreciate it! Wishing you all a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Christina

Lily of the Valley Christmas

Good afternoon.....hope you are all having a pleasant Monday! Today, I decided to play with one of my LOTV Christmas images. I have a special affinity for seeing them on Christmas cards! This sweet angel is showcased on papers I purchased several years ago....don't know the manufacturer any more! The image is stamped on a Nellie Snellen die cut and the Christmas tree is a Nestie die. I also used the new Christmas Lace die from Magnolia.

The inside of the card features a Nestie ornament die. I also used a Christmas ornament embossing folder on the gold Mirro cardstock.

A special thank you to all my visitors..........I appreciate you all so much. Hugs, Christina

Tilda with Tag Gifts

Good afternoon.........hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday! Now it's only a mere 29 days until Christmas! I love making Christmas cards so this is definitely my favorite time of the year. I also love seeing all the spectacular creations that you are showing on your blogs.

Tilda with tag gifts is one of my favorite images. She is showcased on my dwindling supply of BoBunny Midnight Frost papers....only have a few sheets left on my 6x6 pad! Sigh! A friend was kind enough to send me those gorgeous Magnolia snowflakes.....looooooove 'em! The trees are also Magnolia and the star is from Memory Box.

Thank you for swinging by my blog....I love your visits and I appreciate your taking the time to comment. A big Thank You! Hugs, Christina

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning everyone and a very happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!! Today I thought I'd share my contribution to the dinner table.....dessert! I actually made three trays of custard fresh fruit tarts....didn't have enough room to show you all three!

I also made a typical German fresh fruit kuchen (Mandarinen Torte). I actually made two of those tortes, one for a co-worker! As you can see, I have been very busy!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful friends, followers and visitors for your continued support. I value all of you and I especially value the wonderful friendships I was lucky enough to foster over the past few years. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!! lOVE you, Christina

More Tea Light Cards

Good afternoon....hope you are all enjoying your Sunday because tomorrow it's back to work!!!! Please bear with me.....I hope I'm not boring you with tea light cards, especially since I'm using the same Tilda, but I got several requests for that specific Angel Tilda on tea light cards!

I love those pastel papers by Inkido which I purchased a couple of years ago. I also used the new Christmas lace die from Magnolia. The inside of the card once again has a pocket with the sentiment on the tag.

My next card features Tilda on BoBunny papers, also purchased a couple of years ago. Love those papers and I'm almost out! I wanted Tilda to pop so I applied blue inks with a stipple brush,using a touch of yellow for the center. All the embellishments are from my stash.

The inside of the card is quite simple and on this card I decided to place the pocket in the back with the sentiment.

I have 6 more tea lights left so that means one more card will be created, but I'm definitely using a different image.....perhaps Lucia Tilda when she arrives!!

Thank you so much for your visits and your continued are awesome! Big Hugs, Christina

Tea Light Card

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends! We have had such beautiful weather all week long....not something the deer hunters want to see! They would prefer snow.....yuck!!!! I drove to town this morning and there is a steady line of traffic going north.

Today, I'd like to share a tea light card I made featuring my favorite Tilda from the new Nativity Collection. I'll be making lots more cards with this cute Angel Tilda! I used the lovely Maja Design Christmas papers, also my very favorite. Looking at it now, though, I should have used a much narrower ribbon and perhaps also one in white with gold trim. much for hindsight!

The inside of the card features a pocket in which I inserted a tag with the sentiment. Good place also for a gift card or a bill.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love reading your comments and appreciate the time you take to visit! Big Hugs, Christina

November Entries for Hjertebodens Jule Blog

Good morning to all my wonderful blog followers and friends! Hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend! This month at Hjertebodens, we are to make a card with products from the store. Well, I tried to make a purchase at the store, but the checking out process was a lost is a Norwegian site. Then, I remembered the cute little gift bag I received as a gift from the Christmas blogg, along with the red rose and glimmer mist (used that on the rose). Well, I decorated the bag with the darling Angel Tilda from the current Nativity Collection. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from Norway, purchased a couple of years ago. I also used my Magnolia angel wing dies. The back of the gift bag is very simply decorated.

Next, I created a card with the darling Tilda with large bouquet, using papers purchased several years ago from Inkido. The Christmas tree is a Marianne Creatables die.

Finally, I made another Chocolate treat card featuring a Bildmalarna image. The papers are Magnolia, which I distressed with white paint to tone down the colors a bit.

The inside of the treat card features a Magnolia sentiment and a Stampscapes and Magnolia tree.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment. I appreciate your support so much. Bless you!!! Big Hugs, Christina

Pion Vintage Christmas

Good evening everyone! I don't know about you, but I'm so happy that all the pre-election craziness is OVER!!!!!!!!!! My phone is finally silent and I don't have to listen to all those negative ads!!!!!!!!!! I just hope that everyone will work together for the good of the country.

I wanted to create a card showcasing the gorgeous Pion Design papers. I think those angels are so beautiful....I added a little dazzle and I hope you like it.
