Sweet Christmas Dreams

Hello. I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was busy.
It's time for a new challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts. Our challenge for the next 2 weeks is to have Santa on your card. I have him on my paper and Tilda is dressed up like Santa, too. I had such a hard time with the card. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I changed the paper, layout and stamps. I had to walk away from it a couple times. In the end I'm happy with the outcome. I think I just have a hard time with these colors.

Today there is also a new challenge over at TOMIC. We are playin' BINGO this week! I chose the line, lace, ribbon and accessory stamp. I hope you will be able to play along.
If you haven't seen the new Christmas Magnolia Ink is available for Pre-Order! I can't wait to see this issue. The cover looks beautiful!!!!

Have a wonderful week!

Dear Mindy, considering you had trouble with those colors you have once again made a beautiful card. I love this Holding Tilda. She is a real asset for gift cards and how you have used her. I love the Santa Paper and the lovely framed corners.
Edwin and Tilda are colored beautifully. The parcel looks great.
Nice job all round.
Have a wonderful trip with Angie. I'm sure you will have a ton of fun.
Hugs maz
