Tilda with Fern Basket & some Blog Candy

A new weeks starts and we have a little less than two weeks left until Christmas - Yikes!! I have 'finally' finished my Christmas cards but will probably make more and stash them away for next year.
Now to start on my granddaughters blanket.

Today, I have another Christmas card for you, this one is for the Just Magnolia challenge - it needed to be a Christmas card and so that made it easy. It is Tilda holding a basket of Christmas ferns... to create that, I punched a bunch of tiny ferns and glued them over the flowers in the basket. I also used a fair amount of glitter all over the card so it is nice and sparkly. I used some 3D stickers, gems and a charm to dress up the card... oh and I can not forget the little Santa hat - it was a bit smaller than I wanted, so I trimmed her hair a little so it would fit better.
The first picture shows the colors better for the second one turned out a bit too yellow.

That's about it for this one and thanks for stopping by.
