Snowman Soup, anyone .... ?

Hi !!

When it;s so sold that you holler and whoop ..
It's time to bring out the Snowman Soup!
hee .. hee ..

I made a simple tag, that you also can give it a try to make some, because it wasn't consume pretty much time to make that :)
Use only die cut from the DooHickey kit, stamped some wording and may be a little bit accent.

When the weather outside is frightful, Snowman soup can be delightful ..
Let it's snow ... Let it's snow ... Let it's snow ..

{Opps ... I think I am forget the peppermint candy cane.. LOL!!!
but, I am sure you will have some, isn't it ? ... }

When you feel a chill ... brrrr ..
use the candy cane to stir ;)

I just love the word : For you at Christmas ..
and the background was come from years ago collection but it always fit in every Christmas moment.

I want to share some material I use when I arranged the Santa Claus and to make the word on the background sparkling in the real life;

For the Santa's face : Ginger bread, Sahara sand, Pink dust
Santa's hat : Red brick
everything in white color edged with Niagara mist
I stamped the Merry Christmas background using a white pigment ink and clear heat embossed using clear hologram sparkle from WOW
and edged the tag using walnut stain

I also spot how I keep my dies organized , put them together on a piece of magnet and saved on a binder for good.

I hope you can enjoy my blog post today and get some inspiration to prepare some gives on bring your family a cozy winter on this December.

Magnolia Advent Calendar - Shutter #15

Hello dear readers ..

Today is my turn to serve you on the 15th day of the tradition Magnolia Advent Calendar.

as we are approaching to the middle of this December, means we are almost close to the Christmas eve :)

... it's starting with the some snow ..

Before we dive deep down into my blog post today, I would love to share a table decoration for this Christmas, it comes with a simple winter scene .. I am thinking of a White Christmas although here in the country I live we don't have any snow and the weather just rainy outside, I still love to have a snowbank on a glass :)

I make the wintery scene using a diecut from Magnolia DooHickey dies Big House and also the white tree cutting from the Christmas kit - DooHickeys Club

Some white paint I used along with dry glitter and everything is going smoothly beautiful glittery.

if you want to get a try to make this yourself, grab some salt to make the snowbank :) 

Christmas  not just a word! it's mean a lot including Peace - Love - Joy

 Please let me warn you that I have a long post today but I am hoping so much that you will last to read and enjoy my post till the end ♥

Long time ago in Bethlehem ..

I love every images that come from Magnolia, but I can say that the Nativity is my most favorite ones, especially for Christmas. I stamp the Nativity Background  using a pigment ink - moonlight and doing some water coloring on it.
The vocal image is Twinkle Star Tilda from the latest collection - Waiting for Christmas

long time ago in Bethlehem
so the holy bible say
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
was born on Christmas day
hark now hear the angels sing
a new king was born today
and man will live forever more
because of Christmas day

oh it was a beautiful feeling when I listen that song,
and I got the inspiration to make my second Christmas card;

December - Christmas - Winter
aren't they are too beautiful for words ? The most wonderful time of the year! and I ever got the most beautiful early Christmas give on my life .. I gave my second son birth on 15th December and now .. he turns 15 years old and  nothing is better than being a mother

I stamped  Tilda in The Forest - Christmas Story 2012 on a piece of water color paper and I paint the winter background myself :)
lots of winter picture inspired me, but the most I love is the Swedish Lapland ♥
I wish .. I did it well, as I am not a good painter but I have so much love to the winter Lapland of Sweden.

This is the last photo, I promise :)

I would love to spot the wintery, the village and the snowbank over the hill.. and I Believe in the magic of Christmas!

I would love to say Thank you so much to Magnolia, that bring me a lot of happiness through the beautiful stamps they created, and although I spent  my time to caring my family the most nowadays, but they always good to me.
Also to all of you, my lovely readers around this word, you are my beautiful inspirations.

Okay, this is the end of my post so don't forget to leave your words because you will have a chance to win a secret present send directly to your doorstep by Magnolia!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you all :

Merry {early} Christmas!!!

Light of the heart

Hi my dear readers ..

I am miss you from the bottom of my heart!
Really, lots of things to do in the real life ..
I am still have a little time to coloring and do my passion hobby but find a time to sit, relax and write a post is a difficult thing.

oh .. no, I am not too far in fact :)
I do a blog walked when I got a good internet connection, and still connected around facebook :)

December is my favorite month of the year, so when I can't do lots of blog post made a heart break though.. I promise myself I will stretch my Christmas stamp in the future so I can use them although Christmas is behind us and I think it is sound good.. at least for my self hee..hee..

Okay, today I have a card for you to enjoy
the lovely image is Santa Lucia Tilda

I use an oldies paper from Bobunny and the beautiful ornament given from my dear teamies Monique, you can enjoy her beautiful work HERE
Nothing fancy at all with my card as I just want her stand out to figure the beautiful light of Santa Lucia.
The card is 3.5"and 4.5"and I love to make tiny cards when I need a bunch to send out.

I hope my short post today will bring you a good starting to wait the Christmas eve that not longer again, and tomorrow I will have another post which is a shutter for Magnolia Advent calendar, so stay tune!

Lots of love from me and thank you so much for stopping by.
