TILDA WAITS FOR SANTA


And she's waiting on the windowsill!! I have a new die!! I love this Memory box die which is also available at www.poppystamps.com.  This is the small window die.  The large window die is on its way to me and may come in today's mail.  I can hardly contain myself!!
 My card was inspired by the adorable mini images from Magnolia-licious, but also by the MOST talented Kittie747!! She makes such wonderful creations with her punches and, recently has been using the large window die (be srue to scroll down her blog)!!  She totally enables me by everything she shows on her blog!  (Linked above).  My mini is #3058 mini SWEET CHRISTMAS TILDA.  I have linked the full sized image here because it looks like the mini is not available right now.  Be sure to check with Diana though, she is sure to restock if you ask her!  She's GREAT that way! She also has many dies in stock and a frequent shopper program!! Too good to be true these days!
 Here's a close up of our girl!
I hope you get a bit of an idea of the dimension on this relavtively simple card.  I wanted Tilda and the window to really be featured! The stamp behind is a litttle pine tree scene (also from Magnolia!!). I trimmed it to fit the back of the window and then raised the window on dimensionals.  It would make a great shaker card, which I hope to try soon!
I just realized maybe I should put some snow in the corner of my window panes!  I think I'll add that later today!
I hope you've enjoyed today's post! I am IN LOVE with this card!  It will be a little hard to send it off, but the beauty of stamping is that I can make another!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
Cheryl

You can send it to ME, you know I'd take good care of it :) Seriously this is gorgeous, & I'm a bit out of touch as to what new dies are out there now - haven't been shopping much - this is the first I've seen this die - it's the natural order of life - she enables you, you enable me -
