Make it Monday!

Oooh it's my favorite week: Thanksgiving week!  But...well, when I saw our sponsor this week at Make it Monday was Meljen's Designs, I knew I had to make this little Christmas card!

See, Melissa has this adorable Happy Holidays Wreath image...and I had one more of those Lisa Alderson Christmas cards from last year (see my Tilda post here)...and I knew the combo would be awesome soooo, here she is:

I layered the bow and added some gold wasabi tape in the corner!  I just love green and gold for Christmas!!!!

And now for my two picks of the week...they are utterly AMAZING!!!

From Kit and Clowder this magical, mythical, fantastical (is that a word?) creation:

And from Mandy this absolutely gorgeous, girly, stunning card:

Leave them some love because their creations are absolutely amazing!  (Pretty please!)

Don't forget that Make it Monday is always an OPEN paper challenge!  So come join the fun...we LOVE seeing your work!

Another green Christmas card

Can you tell green is my favorite color?  I love it!  Here is Angel Anya, one of my favorites!  I added bits of sparkle around her face because, well, she's an angel and I wanted her to shine!!!!  I hope you can tell I also "layered" her because I'm obsessed with that at the moment!  ;D

Thanks for popping by...happy Saturday!!!!

Anything Goes at Tilda's Town!

It's a new term for the Tilda's Town Design Team!  And we're kicking it off with the world's best kind of challenge: Anything Goes!!!!!! 

But first, a word from our sponsor (lol!)...

Tilda's Town is a most magical shop specializing in Magnolia Stamps. Over 1,100 stamps in stock at all times. Tilda's Town offers FREE worldwide shipping on every order, every day. You can also save up to an additional 20% on your purchase by using one of the famous coupon codes. Shop at and live the magic.

Honestly, there's nothing more annoying than needing ONE image and having to pay $4-7 in shipping fees!  Tilda's Town is awesome because every single image ships FREE!  And FAST!  I usually have my stamps from Maria within 4 days!  Amazing! 

Ok, here is my creation...utterly simple and GREEN!  I recycled an old Christmas card from Lisa Alderson/Advocate-Art.  I loved how simple and pretty the cover was and I used one of my favorite Tilda's, Sweet Christmas Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection to "spruce it up" a bit! 

We have some new faces to welcome to the team (and some familiar names to wave to as well!):

Thank you so much for popping by!  I hope you get a chance to ink up your Maggies and enter our Anything Goes challenge at Tilda's Town!!!!
