Jingle Bells and a cute Christmas Puppy!

Tis the season!   🙂

So, once again I’m behind in my calendar pages!  All I can say is “tis the season”!

I’ve said it before, but Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday …

LOTS of good food, family and friend and NO gifts required!

So, I tend to prep for days beforehand.

Buttttttttt,  I was able to squeeze in time for two quick Magnolia cuties …

(I swear they call my name.)  LOL

The first is JINGLE JANGLE TILDA from the Magnolia-licious store (my fav place to shop for these cuties!)

As you can see, I’ve had way too much fun with this one … added some real mini jingle bells,  a small red button on her slippers, gold Stickles and teeny, tiny red ribbons!    Thought I’d share a quick closeup for you to see the details …

The layout for this card is from my VERY favorite Sketch Design blog … deconstructing jen,

the deconstructed Sketch No. 78:

My second card features this adorable TILDA WITH CHRISTMAS PUPPY … a gift from Magnolia with the purchase of the 2012 Christmas edition of Magnolia Ink!

For this card, I’ve followed the deconstructed Sketch No. 77

Deconstructed Sketch No. 77

And, another quickie pic to show you my usual layering for cardz … LOTS of detailed cutting!

So, I’ll be off for the next few days getting ready for the holiday.

I truly hope those of you in the US have a wonderful day with family and friends.
