Waiting for Santa!!

Good Monday evening again dear blogging friends...for my "Candy Winner Post" click HERE.

So I have been slowly plugging along with my Christmas card list!!

I have been working on this card for over two weeks...waiting for my new "Waiting for Christmas 2014" order to arrive!!  It finally came and I was able to finish off the inside of the card.  I thought that the Tilda Angel should be looking out the window...she seems to be waiting for Santa in my mind...the sweet little Santa from the new Magnolia collection was the only image that I wanted for!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
the card is made using Crealies Create a Card #8 die...
I used Maja paper from the "A Gift for You" 6X6 paper pad...
my Tilda is "Angel of the Year"...sorry can't remember which collection...
she is looking out the Small Grand Madison window by Memory Box...
I put acetate between the windows and added Glamour Dust...
the side steps are decorated with tiny trees from QuicKutz Holly Jolly set...
the rocking horse is from the Magnolia Doohickey Club #2 set...
the stamps are Whimsy Vintage Holiday Gift Tags... 
the poinsettia is made from the Magnolia Doohickey Club #2 set also...
I added a crystal snowflake pin, red chiffon ribbon, sparkly mesh and Martha Stewart fern branches...
the tree was cut from a QuicKutz die and then covered with fern branches, decorated with red berry beads, a snowflake and rhinestone...
the inside paper is from my stash...I thought it looked like a night sky...
I added snowflakes dusted with Glamour Dust...
the snowflake border is JoyCraft 6002/2021 dusted with Flower Soft Polar White...
I added rhinestones to the snowflake centers...
"Merry Christmas" is a QuicKutz stamp and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners...
and this is the sweet "Little Santa" from the new Magnolia "Waiting for Christmas 2014" collection...
the inside of the card finished off with another window frame...
the paper backing the window is also from the Maja "A Gift for You" 6X6 paper pad...
So that is my latest Christmas card!!
