Magnolia Heart Card..."Simple Joys"

I do have another Xmas Tilda ...honest I do....but I needed one to fit on this heart card..and this Cutie worked the best. This is the first time I ever made a heart card....I was not sure how to place the images...but this is the way this card opens up...so I did it this way.

The Tilda I used is "HV08 Tilda with Heart Ornament" and "HV08 Fir Branch" both from the recent "Holiday Collection 2oo8". Magnolia stamps can be purchased from Phebe at The Town Scrapper, Diana Crick's Magnolia-licous store, Magnolia-A-Holic and the Magnolia Store.

The sentiment is from "Hot off the Press"

Images are colored with prismacolor pencils and h20's.

Tilda and simple joys are on foam dimensionals. I've used DCWV glitter paper behind Tilda and nesties for the scalloped oval.

Ink - vesafine black, creamy caramel.

Papers - GP white, Crate, DCWV and card base from Magnolia.

Accessories - cord, lace, glitter, stickles, paper branches from Magnolia, stitching

The new "WINTER /CHRISTMAS 2008" Stamp Club is now being shipped out! It is Fabulous and you can get a peek at it at Malins Fabulous Blog right here.

You can also now order the "Stamp Club™ SPRING 2008" right here. These stamp kits are a Fabulous deal!!!

We have a sprinkling of snow on the ground.....and have had icy conditions all week. I see lots of people have their Xmas lights up in town...and have even seen a few Xmas trees in the windows!! My son gave us a Christmas movie to watch this week called......"12 Days of Christmas Eve"....it was actually pretty funny and had a feel good ending. I guess I could say...."It's beginning to look and feel a bit like Christmas"...Lol.

I hope Everyone has a Wonderful Weekend!!....Thank you so much for all your Lovely comments!!

Thank you for your friendship! You are such a blessing to me. I love the cards you create and your coloring is just fantastic. Thank you so much!

By the way, did you cut out the heart on your own, from a template, or it is a die cut?
