Totally Tilda DT -#101 Mid Summer Christmas

Good morning my dears,  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend and the sun is shining for you where ever you are. 

I'm here today to share my DT card for our new challenge over at

Our theme for the next fortnight is

Mid Summer Christmas

We want to see all your amazing Christmas creations,  this has to be my favourite genre of crafting, I simply adore making anything Christmas related !!! 

I decided to decorate a gift bag as you can never have to many gift bags at Christmas,  I love seeing friends faces when they receive their gift, they are more interested in the gift bag. lol

I love saving up my LOTV gift bags, they are a good size for larger gifts,  my friends save theirs for me!!! so I end up with quite a few. 
Looking forward to seeing the lovely Richard at the SECC Glasgow in October. 

From this

To This 

I've used a selection of stamps from the 2013 Winter Wonderland
collection.  North Pole Tilda - Show the Way Tilda - Show the way Baby Rudolph 

They have all been coloured with Copics and Derwent pencil soft pencils. I will pop a list of ingredients used with links where possible at the bottom of my post. 

Do please pop over to Totally Tilda and take a look at the wonderful projects my sweet friends the Tildarette's have created  just for you.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Nikki over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts
