Thinking of You this Christmas

The new Magnolia-licious Challenge blog is hosting their very first ever challenge which is 'Playful Pink & Happy Yellow'. I also chose to join in the fun at Magnolia-licious Highlites. The amazing Barb Hardeman challenged us to make a shaker card. Now I haven't made a shaker card in years so I had to dust the old cobwebs off of my brain first. LOL But I think it turned out cute. Tilda is thinking of you as she sits in front of a snowy country scene resting her arm on a candy cane. Doesn't she look dreamy? LOL

This is one of my most FAVorite Magnolia stamps called 'Longing Tilda' which you can find at Diana's Magnolia-licious store. I used my Copics to color her.

I'm also entering these challenges:
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club: Challenge #44 Christmas Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy Challenge: Christmas with no red or green
Stampin for the Weekend: Winter theme
Creative Inspirations: Winter Woodland
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog: Sparkle!
Top Tip Tuesday: Buttons (1 or more)

As always........I sooooo appreciate all of the sweet, sweet comments you leave. It truly makes my day a bit brighter. Thank you so much!
