It's Clearly Christmas!

Been very busy trying to get projects done, but find I can't post all of them yet or everyone will have seen them!!

Love the look of acetate cards, but it sure is hard to keep the fingerprints off the acetate and to  take photos, but thought I would try anyway!

This #3058 Jolly Tilda is such a cutie with her subtle expression and striped stockings!!!  Because she is sooo cute, understandably Diana at Magnolia-licious is out of her right now but does have her on re-order.  Don't dismay, there are still so many adorable Maggie stamps to choose from right now!

Recently acquired a few ProMarker pens and this was one of my first attempts.  Will need some practice and they are quite different than using the distress inks.

Additional supplies used are Nesties Label 11 Dies, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder, EK Success Flower and Leaf, Punch Bunch Fern and Sun, Ribbon, Flowersoft, and Glaze Pen.

Also worked on another acetate card basically the same, but put a snowman on this one.  Saw some different variations of this snowman on Splitcoast Stampers.  Loved this version where it looks like we are kind of looking down on him from above!
 One card done....only 11 to go!!!!
EDITED:  Well wasn't done with even one!  I kept looking at the nose and it didn't look right!  So fixed the card above, but left the pictures of the others.  Ha, they have all had a nose job since!!!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Enjoy every day!!!

Hi Patty Jo,
I have to say I am really drawn to the acetate cards - Just don't know where to get some nice acetate.
I'm with you wondering how to keep finger prints and other marks off of them?
Yours are both so beautiful and sweet. Tilda is delightful and I think you have coloured her wonderfully. The snowmen are the cutest ever :o)
Hugs, Candy

Hi Dear Friend!
You did well with those Promarkers. You'll be a pro before you know it. I love the use of the acetate.
Your coloring is great. Love your snowmen. They are so cute.
