Christmas is on the way

pollycraft


Hello my dear friends! I hope every one's weekend was wonderful. Mine was very very busy. On Saturday Santa was in town so we were able to have breakfast with him and the misses. The kids decorated cookies, created gorgeous tree ornaments and danced with some crazy fun elves. Yesterday Sean and I were trimming the house while watching the movie "Scrooge" the one with Albert Finney. That's our favorite one. Today I lost my mojo for crafting so I'm not really into creating at the moment as the holiday spirit has captured my heart. So it's back to decking out the halls and maybe doing a little on-line Christmas shopping for me today and later on tonight I'm setting up my Christmas village.

I do have a card to share that I made last week using another one of Magnolia's newest Christmas stamps. I colored her in using my Copic markers in shades of blue's and purple's. Flowers are by Wild Orchids. I distressed some chipboard corners and swirl with Crackle paint. The snowflake punch is by Martha Stewart and the fancy heart border die is by Magnolia.

Thank you for visiting me today.
I hope your day sparkles with beauty and love
Hugs Bonnie

Thank you for your comment, I love to hear about Christmas Traditions. One of my dreams is so go to America for a holiday before Christmas.

For the red on Tilda I used Aged Mahogany. I just dont like the other red that I have, Fired Brick. Its a little too orange. Maybe I`ll have to try Barn Door, but if that dont work I think I`m sticking with Aged Mahogany until Tim Holtz create something perfect for Christmas. ;)
