I have had Christmas songs in my head since I started on this card a couple days ago and with the ornament premier coming up this weekend, I am ready to get this holiday season started! (It's a coping mechanism, to deal with the heat that won't subside until October)... LOL!
I think this will always be my favorite Tilda stamp. When I first laid eyes on a Magnolia Ink magazine, it was the Christmas 2010 edition and Santa's Little Helper stole my heart. I became infatuated with the Maggie stamps and magazines because I had finally found a style that said, "this is me".
My card turned out much differently then I intended. I'm consoling myself by believing that I am not the only one that this happens to. I had totally different papers chosen, went out and purchased Copics to match that paper, and once Tilda was done, saw that the inks were darker and redder than I thought they'd be. So I dove into my paper stash and came up with some gorgeous papers by Imaginisce that I've been holding onto for just the right project.
I hope this gives you a little jump on your holiday spirit like it did for me. Thank You so much for stopping by! More of what I used to make this card is listed below.

Have a great day and an even better tomorrow!
