Merry Christmas To You

Hello Happy Bloggy Buddies,
I hope you are well and aren't freaking out
too badly with the big day just a few sleeps away!!
I wanted to share with you part of my big project
that I eluded to in a previous post.

I've used the fabulous sketch that Mina provided
over at Just Magnolia this week.
I love Minas sketches, they are always fun to use!!
This is Christmas Eve Tilda kindly stamped for me
by the fabulous Sue of
Sues Rubber Stamping Adventure,
she's painted in distress inks,
hit with the Crystal Stickles,
cut out and popped up on foam dots,
all papers are Basic Greys new Chrissie pack,
all punches used are Martha Stewart,
I've used a doiley sprayed with glimmer mist
and the lace is from Hancock Fabrics,
the beautiful gardenia that I loaded with
Stickles and Ice Stickles is from
my bloggy buddy and fellow D-teamie Tracey,
you are going to want to head on over to her blog
and check out her amazing creations!!
I've used shankless buttons inside the punched snowflakes &
the bead stems are from the bridal department at Michaels.

I am going to pop this in over at
the following challenges:
Just Magnolia provided the sketch,
Simon Says is hosting a Christmas challenge,
well, that's it I guess!!!
I've gone and missed all the Christmas challenges,
what do you know, lol!!

Now remember ladies,
it is perfectly fine to eat the chocolates!!
Happy Holidays!!
