Tilda with Cross Stitched Heart

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday!  Are you all ready for that Magical Day of the Year??  I’m not . . . . but still have a day before we leave for the holidays. . . . . . DH says, we have to make a break for it when the weather is good!  The pass that we go over is quite bad in the winter – and storms come in at the drop of a hat. 
I’m so enchanted with Magnolia Stamps and so I’ve P1010120 copychosen to showcase one of the Christmas Darling’s called “Tilda with Cross-stitched heart”.  She is just so sweet, sitting with her lantern in the snow.  
I stamped the image onto Copic Xpress-It Blend C/S with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers, cut her out and used 3D tape to plunk her cute little bottom onto a strip of rolled wide Seam Binding to keep her warm…….. lol.  I then added a bow to add some dimension and Stickles on her Heart X Stitch, and accents on the papers. . 
The papers I used are from the 25 Days of Christmas Collection available at OCS.

 Now for the inside.........  I have made this a box card with treats inside....hidden behind a removable plastic sleeve with a Christmas Greeting.

I want to wish you all, a Very Blessed, and safe  Merry Christmas. May you get to spend time with family and loved ones.
