Magnolia Greets The Holidays & Candy

Another Christmas card. My needed number is finally going down. What will I ever do when they are all done? We had wonderful weather today. I love when the sun shines and makes the snow glitter. They are predicting rain tomorrow but I`m hoping they are wrong. Once the snow comes and the roads clear, then let the snow alone! It`s pretty, the kids have fun playing and sliding and the dogs think its great.

I used the Magnolia with flowers in her hair. Normally she is a Spring stamp but today she is wearing Poinsettia like flowers. I don`t usually use red and green but decided I would today...I wanted to make sure she looked like winter. The next time I do her I think I will try deeper shades for the winter or maybe blues. Guess I`ll have to get back to coloring eh.

I used two sizes of nesties to make the image and layers. The smallest rectangle and scallop are the same size and then I went one size larger for the green layer. I also CB with Dotted Swiss on a layer and finally added two layered ribbons both fr Michaels Spool o ribbon. The word window was used to add the sentiments and I used the spica pens to add some glitter.

A very simple card. I used Cottonwood paper from The Paper Company and it was very hard to color using the Prismacolored Pencils and OMS. It seemed to absorb too much of the color. It is OK but not great coloring.. I`ll know better next time.

Blog Candy Alert: Check out this blog for some great candy.

Off to make Supper. Talk Later.
