Christmas in May

Good morning! I hope you are having a great weekend so far.

My card today is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges #97 - Christmas in May. I've inked up cute little Tilda with Star and watercoloured her. I messed her dress up a bit (hehehe) so I've paper pieced it to cover it up.

The card shape was cut on my cricut and I've distressed and stitched all of the edges.

I don't know about you, but I bought so many stamps from the Merry Little Christmas collection last year and a lot of them didn't get much love (very bad!) so this challenge was a fantastic opportunity to have a little play and to get ahead for this Christmas.

We'd love to see you join us in getting into the Christmas spirit this week. The DT has done an amazing job once again, so please pop on over to check out their work.

Some challenge to enter are:

Thanks for visiting me today! Don't forget I have a little candy running, don't forget to enter :)
