Christmas !!!!!

A very good morning to you all,  I hope you are all looking forward to your weekend.  The sun is peeking through the clouds here this morning so I have high hopes of at least a dry day which will allow me to spend some time in the garden doing a little tidying up.

Anyway, my card this morning is my first Magnolia Christmas card, I know!!!! it's only July, but I thought I'd get them started and put in my Festive card box so I'm not panicking nearer the time.

I've used the limited edition Tilda with skates from last year and masked her onto the Noel accessory stamp, both have been coloured  with copics.  I've also used the fir tree stamp and cut out two of the trees and sat two of the sweet very mini Magnolia fairy's on top. The little rosette holding the sentiment is hand made using my hougie board.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead and the sun shines for you where ever your are.
