We Wish YOU a Merry Christmas! (Blog Candy winner, too!)

Hello!! After too long an absence I am back with a card (On 12/12/12)! I only finished this one because I had the day off for a doctor's appointment!  When I'm working there is just no energy left at the end of the day!  Anyway, I recently colored this little Tilda and didn't have a layout decided upon.  I sort of 'dreamed' this card this morning just before I had to get up! I came out just as I had dreamed!
I don't know what it means when you dream about cards, but I'm glad I have this one to show you!  Here is an angled view so I hope you can see some of the dimension. I recently received this awesome die from Memory Box. It's called French Doors, but I used it as a double casement window. I used tips from Kittie to cut the opening in my card for my window. Since Tilda is standing inside I placed my lace curtain on the front of the card and created a curtain rod with a slim piece of expresso and a circle from a hole punch on each end.  The poinsettias are an older stamp from Magnolia.  You can certainly ask Diana at Magnolia-licious about getting it, if you're interested.  Here's the link to the amazing Magnolia-licious store!  Diana carries dies too, and scor-tape and mini images and has great customer service and a frequent buyer program, too!! My card is 5.5" square.

Can you see the pine boughs outside Tilda's window?  I also cut a very simple flower pot for her potted poinsettia on the floor. 
 Here's the inside that you see when you look through the window. I cut three brances from the Impression Obsession pine branch die. They are arranged, glued and then glued up with some flower soft snow and glitter glass added!  A gingham bow completes the look.  A small holiday sentiment will fit in the lower right corner without being noticeable when the card is closed.
 This is the inside left of the card.  I probably should have covered it as well, but I like how cutting another window nicely covers the hole for the window.  I added another poinsettia to cover the back of the Tilda image.
Ladies, I hope you see this, and if you do, please contact me at with your address so I can mail you some goodies!
(Comments are chosen from my last post-THANK YOU! Please see below.)
Have a great day and THANK YOU for coming by today!! I appreciate it so much!!

ETA:  I'm entering my card in the current TILDA'S TOWN CHALLENGE-CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS!

Thought is like hammering a nail Give away what you want more of ? it really worksFree Will, in my view, is the way we perceive our life as well as the way we portray ourselves We using graphology chooses right employees according to business criteria
