Happy Holiday Winter Scene

Angie has come up with some lovely inspiration photos for us for the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge for November!  The east is already experiencing the white stuff, but at least we haven't yet!!!  Our time will come!!!

I wanted to use a few different minis for my scene.  If I would do it again, I would do the layout a little different.  Isn't that always the way it goes!!!

The minis I've used are from Magnolia-licious of course!!!

These are quite popular, so two are out of stock right now, but please check with Diana at Magnolia-licious .

These images are water colored with Distress Inks and the background is also sponged with Distress Inks.   I've added some punched snowflakes from Punch Bunch and Martha Stewart.  The Happy Holidays stamp is Hero Arts and I've added white with a Souffle pen on the trees and white gel pen for the "dot" snowflakes.

You will want to check out the Stay Put Craft Mats.   Even if someone has the old style craft mat, you will love to have this one because they are so much better!  On the old one, my corners would keep curling up and it would slide around.  Doesn't happen with this one, it is fantastic to work on whether you are heat embossing, smearing inks, or gluing!  Check it out for yourself or would be a perfect gift for that crafter that seems to have everything.  I couldn't believe the difference working on this mat.  Makes my crafting much easier!

I hope you will join us in the challenge for your chance at a great prize sponsored by Diana at Magnolia-licious.  Not only that, but it is fun and a good way to get another Holiday card done!!!

Enjoy every day!

Hi Patti Jo!
OMG!!! Wow! I love your card. I love tht it hasn't got any pattern paper. So gorgeous how you shaded it with the lighter snow in the middle. the trees look beautiful and of course the mini Tilda and Edwin look amazing and having a lot of fun.
I love the snowflakes. I wish we had a white Christmas here but it is going to be very hot.
Super gorgeous card my friend.
Hugs Maz
