A Koala, Tilda, pizza and two little boys

I am really excited to show you my card today :o) Do you remember last year when Magnolia released their Bon Voyage collection and there was a little Australian Tilda in the collection? I HAD to have her and wished there were more Aussie themed Maggie stamps.... well... Bron at ShopBron must have been feeling the same way as she has asked Pauline to design a very special edition stamp just for her store.... Koala Hugs Tilda. She is just PERFECT for any occasion and I can assure you that I will be inking her up at every opportunity I get!

I thought I would make an Aussie Christmas card first off. The new challenge today at MDUC is "So Sentimental"  so I found the lyrics to the Aussie version of Jingle Bells and printed it onto some Basic Grey papers "Jovial" from last year and cut a hole out of the centre of the card with a nestie.

All of the edges are inked with Vintage Photo and the raffia and flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  All of the die cuts are done with Doo Hickey dies.

I just adore this cute stamp!

Just another pic of the detail :)

I hope you like the card and Miss Tilda and her koala :o) I believe Bron still has some left in her store so head on over and snaffle yours :) There is a direct link to the stamp in my sidebar.

I'll leave you with some photos of my boys enjoying their dinner last night.......

Mmmmm - Lekker! (My Dutch friends will know what that means :o) )

Turkish Lamb Pizza, complete with rocket, tomato and yogurt :o) YUM. Made from scratch by me (yup, dough included!).
