I used a new Sizzlet die, designed by Tim Holtz for the Joy To The World sentiment
The wood grain embossing is a plate by Papertrey Ink
the cord is from Lawn Fawn, strategically placed because the embossing folder had to be run through the machine twice…
I cut the mats with my Perfect Paper Layers Tools
background is Distress ink Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord and the ink blending tool

It’s crazy here right now… we’ve been working on our house… decisions and decisions…ugh…taking away from my creativity!  Want to see a scary photo?! haha  Now remember, we live in a big old house… 3 stories…4 if you count the basement!    Well,  we hadn’t restored the back stairway yet, so,  guess what…it shares a wall with the kitchen, the wall the stove is on, so we were able to install a range hood and vent it to the outdoors…love it but most of all, Tim was able to install a Central Vacuum system!!! OH,  how I LOVE it!  Something every woman should have! hehe  No,  I’m not linking up to anything! lol  It was a very big deal figuring out what to order that would work in our house but it turned out fabulous!  yea!  Early Merry Christmas to me!

So now, it’s getting the stairway built back in…right now the cavity is 27 feet plus tall!!!  Crazy…amazing how they built old houses!  It’s really hard to show in pictures but I wish I could…if you open the door on the 2nd floor… don’t take a step…you’d drop all the way to the basement! eek! So much for the excitement here…more to do because of course, one thing leads to another! lol

Thanks for stopping by!  Fun to post today and thank you for your kind comments and visits!

Magnolia, Tilda’s Town Challenges… Merry Christmas!

Better watch out!  This Santa Edwin is keeping track…hope you’ve been good!  I’m not telling! hohoho!

Time for the weekly Tilda’s Town Challenge… this week the theme is MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I knew you’d love it!  I wanted to use some new stamps but only ended up using one of the new collection.   So fun though… I hadn’t used this Santa Edwin yet,  so that’s the same as new to me!  Love this comfy Christmas scene!

The window die just came yesterday!!! YEA!  LOVE it!  The Winter Scene Background stamp is perfect with it!

I stamped up the images, cut them out, colored with Copic Sketch markers and made my scene.  This Fancy Pants 6×6 Christmas pad just showed up at my door yesterday too…  Great timing!  I know,  I said I wasn’t going to buy any more paper!  NAUGHTY!  boo!

The naughty or nice is from an older Sizzlet strip die #655203, I googled and found it here… I’ve not ordered from them before, Scrapbook Niche.   Ebay auction HERE for the naughty/nice die. Holly die link below.
