Marvelous Magnolia Challenge #109-"Anything Christmas BUT a Card"

Good Monday morning my crafty friends!!!

Are you all organized for Christmas??!!  Boy I sure do hope that I am...I have a large family party to do this Saturday and then it's time to organize Christmas dinner...YIKES!!!!

Okay onto today's post!!! 

Today at Marvelous Magnolia we close out the year with "Anything Christmas BUT a Card"...this challenge will run through the holidays to January you have lots of time to join us AND you have a chance to win a GDT spot...we can't wait to see what you have to inspire us with!!!

So I had decided that instead of a card this year I would make Christmas door hangers for my Grandkids...this is my third with one more to go..."Can I get them done??"  So much!

Here is the latest...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
the hanger is MDF from Hobby Lobby in the States...
painted with white acrylic then embossed on the outer edges with Shabby Blue Frantage...
I added a chiffon ruffle around the outside...
DP is Maja from the Winter Frost Basics 6X6 paper pad...
 this sweet Tilda is "Tilda with Christmas Lamp" masked with "Christmas Mice" both from the newest A Lovely Christmas 2015 collection...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage...
I have added Liquid Pearls (side of the straw bale) and Glamour Dust (on the flame and her hat tassel...which is covered by the but sadly I couldn't capture them properly with the camera...
 diamante pin...
 rhinestone lace and diamante snowflake...
I had to show you these sweet little mice again...aren't they adorable peeking out from the straw??... 
 poinsettia is made using Tim Holtz die...
using Maja DP and pink fiber paper and dusted with Snow Tex and Glamour Dust...
AND look what I found on the last sheet in the Maja paper pad...a Canada stamp!!!...tucked above the blue chiffon ribbon...
 I so love this knitted/wire ribbon that I found at Michaels...don't know what I'm going to do when I've used it all cause it was discontinued...
"Christmas Greetings" is from the last page of the paper pad as well...
So that's my "Anything Christmas BUT a Card"...won't you come on over to Marvelous Magnolia and join us in celebrating Christmas??!!  You should see the gorgeous works of my talented team mates!!!!
