Let it Snow Tilda Project (she must be freezing!!)

Hi there blogger buddies!!
Been a while, hasn't it!!
I've been avoiding my housework
trying to sneak in a few more Christmas cards
before my work schedule changes for the holidays.
So I thought I'd dig a Tilda out and have some fun!!

She's not a Christmas image, I know, but I thought, hey, those sparkles could pass for snowflakes, and went to work!! I've used some yummy winter accesories from Whimsy Stamps to help Tilda get her winter overhaul, I've used a sentiment from the recently released Winter Notables by Raindrop Echo Designs, as well as the coordinating Elegant Notables Die AND the lovely Layered Snowflake Dies.

I painted in distress inks, the papers are Basic Grey, I've used my MS Doiley punch as well as the Magnolia Lace die cut, with doileys, doily die cut, etc. and lace lace lace!!! I love that with these cute lil' Maggies you don't have to restrain yourself where the girly stuff is concerned!!

Now, with that, I want to enter some challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Anything Christmas with Pearls (does winter-themed get me in???)
Magnolia Down Under Let It Snow
The Official Magnolia inspiration Challenge wants vintage and lace

Thanks for stopping by, my friends, your kind words mean a lot to me!!!
Warm Hugs,
