Rose cake Tilda

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. 
Ours was very relaxing. 

I spent a little time at my craft desk whipping up a little birthday card with this sweet Tilda "Rose Cake" from the Boho collection. 
The papers are a bit of mix, as are the die cuts.
The card edge has been punched using a MS punch around the page set. 

Little Tilda has been painted with DIs... yes I still need a lot of practice. She was stamped using Memento Summer Sky ink to give the 'no lines' look.  I've used Archers "Smooth" Watercolour paper.

I really like this stamp. I've always wanted to try a Swedish Princess cake :)

Winner of Advent day #1

Welcome back! I am so glad to see you enjoyed the project I had to show you on Tuesday. 
I will announce the winner of Day 1 at the end of the post. 

I'm still busy working away making Christmas cards here :) 
I have been dying to play with the adorable little scene background from the Doo Hickey club and finally had a chance to put a card together with it. 

I coloured up the cute little Sitting Mary Christmas from So Jolly Collection 2009 to go with it and added quite a few other Doo Hickey cuts to embellish. 

Mary is coloured with Copics and the papers are Maja Design. 

So without further ado - 
the winner of Magnolia's Christmas Advent Day #1 is 

Sol! Congratulations!  
Could you please email me ( with your address so I can pass it on to Magnolia for your prize
Thank you so much for your sweet comments everyone. 
Make sure you check in with the DT each day until the end of the month. 

Hugs xx

Welcome to the first day of Magnolia's annual Advent Calendar. 
I am very pleased to start of the celebration this year with my altered mini cutting board.

I coloured up Joyful Tilda from the 2012 A Christmas Story collection and placed her on the painted cutting board. 

Some close up pics of the Doo Hickey dies used to decorate

The edges of the board have been embossed with "Frantage" and white gesso
