christmas waffles :)

Good morning everyone, I'm back again with another card, and I have another to post after this one. I should apologize for the crappy photos, it was overcast and raining all day yesterday so my pics are a bit gloomy. we are having some very funny weather lately, even though the skys are clear and it is nice and sunny outside it is bloody freezing! I guess I only have myself to blame, as soon as we had our air conditioner installed and running last week the heat wave ended and the weather has been kind of miserable ever since, with the exception of Sunday, which was Glenn's work Xmas picnic, so the warm weather was definitely welcome :) The boys went on their first ride, little spinning teacups, they are nuts and love spinning around and making themselves dizzy so they loved the teacups (they made me fairly dizzy though, lol).

Anyways, on to the card. I have had this magnolia wreath stamp for a while and have not had the right stamp to sit in it... until now! I cannot get enough of this little cutie, I love her more and more every time i ink her up. The holly paper and ticket and from Bizzy Bec's digi store, the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch, I have glittered the white snowflake and sort of weaved it together with the red one. I have added glitter to Tilda's fur trim and red crystal berries to the wreath. I doodled with a white gel pen a little and the ribbons and crystals were from my ever growing stash.

I would have finished this card a day earlier than I did but I could not find the ribbon I was looking for, so I went ahead and used some different ribbon and which meant I could not do exactly what I had in mind, oh well, it came out ok anyway, but as soon as I had finished I stuck my hand in a box for something else and pulled out the damn ribbon I had spent AGES looking for! Don't you hate when that happens!! I cannot tell you how annoyed I was.

So, here is my card (after extensive waffles):

This card plays along with:

Magnolia Down Under - Bedazzled (I chose the sentiment to match the theme :) )
Just Magnolia - A card for someone special (I think this will be for my mum or MIL)
Pile it on - Tinsel Town
Stamp Something - Glitzy somethings
Stampin for the Weekend - red green and gold
Die Cuts R Us - a project with a holiday feel
