Jingle Jangle Tilda

Happy Friday my Crafty Peeps!

I wanted to hurry up and get this post up before five o'clock because, a) there is a challenge that I want to enter ending at that time and, b) I have to hurry and finish cleaning because my mom is coming in from Milwaukee this evening.  I have been running around like a crazy woman this entire week with putting up Christmas decorations, making decorations, bringing the Christmas china in from storage, trying to get this card made...  PHEW!  I need a long winters nap!

It has been cloudy and raining all day long and so my pictures didn't come out all that well, but I will try again tomorrow and post some more.  (It's still raining and these are the best I could do.  Still much better than yesterday's though),
This beautiful little lady is Jingle Jangle Tilda and she is from last year's A Christmas Story collection.  She is going to finish off that tree by hanging her red bells on the empty side.  I have colored her up in my Copics, inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used Frantage for snow. 
I used some word paper (from stash) for the background of my card and then printed out a red snowflake patterned paper from Raspberry Road to add over that.  I made a frame from corrugated paper and the tree is from a Sizzix/Tim Holtz die.  I went crazy with the Frantage on everything.  The snowflakes on the right are buttons from Joann's that came in a decent sized bag and it only cost me $3 with a coupon.  Oh, the possibilities with these just get the creative juices flowing!  Hee Hee!  There is a tag tucked in the top of the card that reads "May all your Christmases be white".
Thank you for putting up with my craziness!  Have a great day and better tomorrows!
