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!
