Christmas "Card" Undelivered!!

Well Happy New Year All!!  I hope that everyone was able to enjoy quality time with family and friends!

Our Christmas was a little wacky this year and I was unable to finish and deliver my "cards" for my two best friends!!

Today I want to show you my friend Dianne's who has been my BFF forever...literally as she has known me since I was born!  Di has a pink Christmas tree (not the tree...the ornaments) so I decided to make an ornament using white/pink/a touch of red...

I used a large glass ball that I found in Homesense...I added White Texture Effect and glamour dust to create the snow on top...
please click on first picture for a slideshow...
I made a Christmas tree by forming a cone with white card stock and covering it with white feathers...
I topped it with two snowflake charms back to back and added pink pearls and some tiny red rhinestones...
then I made gifts out of cardstock for Tildas to sit on...
this is Tilda with Little Rudolph (this is one of my most favourite Magnolia stamps) from the Christmas Story 2012 collection...
here is Jolly Elf Tilda...I believe she's from the Merry Christmas 2010 collection...

and this is Tilda with Little Gift...sorry not sure what collection... 
And that completes Dianne's "card" which I will give to her now I just have one left to do...then I guess it's time to start 2014 cards...LOL!!!
