Midweek Magnolia #38 I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Good morning my lovelies,  It's Wednesday and time for another Christmas themed challenge over at 

This week our theme is  

You can choose to go completely White on White or like me you can go Winter White.  I've kept my card quite free of my usual array of flowers etc because  I love this image so so much that I wanted her to be the focal point.  This is the special Tilda from last years collection and she has been coloured using Derwent soft pencils and sansodor.  I usually just use my pencils for shading but not this time.

My papers are Magnolia "Angels calling" which I've distressed using Tim Holtz distress wheel,  I will pop a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post just in case you're curious.

Just before I go I would like to say a huge Hello to my new followers and of course to my wonderful existing followers who are so supportive of my wee blog. I find it really hard to visit everyone but I really appreciate every one of you for visiting and leaving me such wonderful comments.  Thank you all so very much.

Please pop over and take a peek at the AMAZING!!! creations the fabulous Dt have made for you this week,  we have chandeliers, pure white on white and much more for your inspiration.

Please !! Please!!  Triple Please!!!!  do ensure that you read the rules that we have on the Midweek Magnolia Challenge Blog,  it totally breaks my heart that we cannot include the fantastic creations that you enter in the mystery prize draw from Magnolia Sweden or in our top 3 selection if you haven't linked back to us, not used a Magnolia product or entered more than 5 (including our) Challenges.
