Wassailing......



****see below for my happy edit :)****



Hello & Happy Hump Day!! Ok, I know I said I was grateful I had my old camera, since my newer one is not working.....but OH MY GOSH!!!! I spent more time trying to get one good picture of this card, than it took for me to make the card!! I always have a hard time with red.....throw in a moldie oldie camera and....well I am irritated to say the least!!!!




Please use your imagination.....the card looks much better IRL than it does in this photo!! And I couldn't even get my usual close up of Tilda.....the camera just wouldn't cooperate :(

Anyway....I used Tilda with Sled. I don't know if that's her official name, but that's what I call her!! My good friend Dawn sent me this stamp last year & I just love it!! I had always loved the Magnolias but I think this was the first actual stamp I owned!! She's colored with Prismas & gamsol.....& I used lots of glitter & Liquid Applique!! The papers are SU's Always Artichoke & Basic Grey Wassail. I hope I can still get this paper....I need more!! It's one of my all time favorite Basic Grey....so pretty for the holidays!! I added a snowflake made with my Spellbinders......& some silver cord with a silver snowflake charm!

Don't forget all the fun stuff coming in at 7 Kids College Fund!! She just received another order of High Hopes stamps, plus you can now order the new Slapstick stamps from Penny Black!! And don't forget to preorder the In 2 Stamps & the Christmas Magnolias!!! Too many stamps, too little time & money, lol!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!!


*****edited****

OMG!!!! I fixed my camera!!!! I pushed on the zoom & turned it on & off & on & off....hey, it couldn't hurt, right? Something clicked & VOILA......it started working!!!!!! So I retook the pictures.....got a close up this time....still have a problem with my reds but this picture is soooo much better!!!! Thanks for listening to me whine & complain!!!!

Silly girl! Your card is beautiful!! I love your coloring, you really have a gift for the Magnolia stamps. I do agree that red is SUCH a hard color to capture on film though, but I think you did an awesome job. I really like the colored snowflakes! I get stuck in such a rut and always think they need to be white. I love that. THanks for the inspiration!! hugz, Mary
