Molly The Elf Checking Her List

Hello All, 

Today is a lovely sunny day here in England, quite a nice change during winter and I couldn't believe my eyes, when I saw a large black and red butterfly in my garden, now that is a first for mid November!

Onto my card, I used Krista Smiths Molly The Elf for my newest Christmas card and made a lot of the elements my self too, so I am really pleased with it.

I colored her with Copics and added flocking and a sprinkle of diamond dust to the fluffy & furry parts of her clothes. I didn't draw her nose, but I did use shadowing to create one, which I am also pleased with ha ha!
The outer paper is from my own stash of goodies and the edges are chalked, the two top papers are Maja Design,edged with metallic paint & the border is Maja too.
I added the white memory box flourish, die cuts around the outer edge, as I think they add a little more interest to the shape.

I made the two hat pins to compliment the brown and blue colour scheme.

I also made the two layer glittery snowflakes, if you enlarge the picture you can see both layers. There is sneaky glimpse of the cream lace, I added underneath the border. 
The candy cane is made from Fimo clay and yes, you guessed I made that too.

In an effort to cut down on your scrolling time, I made these photos into a page and as you can see in the top right picture, I used a Tim Holtz Ideology pin to hold the sentiment ticket and joined the two silver bells together with a silver ring and attached them to the pin.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a fab and crafty weekend!

Its Cold Outside Tilda Snowy Scene Card

Hello Everyone 

Here is a card that I made using 'Its Cold Outside' Tilda, masked with the Old Swedish Church Background.

All of the snow is snow-tex and it took over an hour and half to apply each little bit! 
I thought this little Tilda was perfect to mask with this background.

All the flowers are from Live and Love Crafts and the little acorn caps are from the Ribbon Girl. 

The paper on the bottom section of the card is Maja Design.

Hope you like it...

I have also used one of Unique Crafts 'Snow' wood chip wording too and of course my blue bling is in the center of a Magnolia Doohickey Bow.

Thanks for stopping by today, Take care
