At last another Christmas card!

 Oooh I've had such an awful time the last three days!!  My PC has been poorly sick big time - it wouldn't even boot up!!  My husband and I have spent over 12 hours collectively trying to fix it - I hate it when computers go wrong, it just takes forever and seems like such an utter waste of precious hours!!!  Anyway, thankfully, all the rebooting and reloading of programs has finally paid off and we're back up and running (keep your fingers crossed for me that it stays that way!).  It's a good job too as I now have lots of cards piled up ready to share with you all!  This first one is one of five commissions I received and I must say I really love how this turned out - even my husband asked if I could make one the same for him to give to me lol!!!  The papers are by Magnolia distressed with walnut stain distress ink.
 I masked Tilda with snow heart #3090 with the Swedish Church background #520  and have coloured them with copics which I've listed below:

Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11, E13, R22, R20
Scarf and tights: W3, W2, 00
Dress: R59, R46, R37, R29
Boots: E43, E42, E41
Church: E44, E43, E42, E74, E71
Background: C2, 00

 The heart was cut with a Sizzix die and the sentiment is from Magnolia too.
 The letters were stamped with a Hampton Arts Alphabet stamp set and the corners are a Sizzix die.  I added lace from my stash and the gorgeous snowflake border is from Memory Box.
 The ribbon is from my stash and I've added another Sizzix heart to the centre.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
