Cute Card Thursday # 140...You Light up My Life!


Hey crafty friends! Hope everyone is keeping well! Has the weather turned cold on you yet? Well, it is  starting to get really cold here. Winter is on its way I'm afraid and this year they are predicting a good old fashioned Canadian winter for us. I guess we are due, since last year we didn't have any snow to speak of. Well, I have an appointment to get the old snow tires put on the van on Saturday. So, I should be good and ready for the white stuff,smile!

Well, enough weather talk (a Canadian past time, smile) I have a card to share with you today! I made it for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday! They have a really neat idea for the challenge....A Blast from the we are to pick one of the previous CCT challenges but not the free for all challenge. So, I have picked Challenge # 129, A Play on Words!


As I have said I am in serious Christmas card making mode, so, once again, I have made an easel card and used BG Jovial 6x6 papers! I used this adorable Magnolia stamp, Tilda in a Winter Night, from the Merry Little Christmas 2010 collection! I absolutely adore her and I loved colouring her with my Copcis. I cut her out with my rectangle Nesties using the "Out of the Box" technique and left the image in the die and inked with Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress ink! I cute the Magnolia border die from MFT My Favorite Felt and I used this great sentiment, perfect for the Play on Word Challenge, from the MFT WTG, Winter in the City stamp set. I also used my Magnolia flourish die and cut it from some glittery cardstock and I cut MFT Die-namics snowflakes from the glitter cardstock too. I layered the snowflakes with the Prima and WOC roses. I added a few white half pearls here and there and some crushed black velvet ribbon....I love velvet with's the perfect combo, me thinks. I also added Sakura Glaze pen to Tilda's lantern but it didn't show up in the pic. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Hope you have a stampin' great day!

Love the colour of the sentiment co-ordianting with the lantern & the roses - just glowingly right all round! Sensible you have snow tyres - they're not part of the equipment it seems in the UK but my parents always used to have a set in case they were needed & snow chains for emergencies.
