I'm on a roll!!

Hello my friends happy Guy Fawkes night to you.  Its a beautiful night for it here all chilly willy so you can wrap up all snuggly and warm and have hot choccy and marshmallows mmmm...........We're not out tonight we celebrated on Saturday and went to an organised event at Luke's school which was great fun.

Anyway as the title would suggest I really am on a roll with my Christmas cards I still don't think I will have enough but it will certainly take a little of the pressure off closer to the big day.  I tell you I am so so excited I think I'm probably worse than the kids and the decs will be making their way down from the loft in the next 2 or 3 weeks, can't wait.
I'm back with the Maggies again today and I've done a bit of masking and gone with a non traditional colour scheme this time.  I'm still learning with masking it took a few attempts to get it right.  I showed this one to hubby and he just said "well thats lovely but why is she sat on a fireplace? to which I replied she's Tilda thats what she does doh!!! and I think I must have given him a filthy look because he then just scuttled off! 

A close up of the images coloured with copics.  She's been sufficiently Stickled and I've added tiny red gems for berries on the holly.

Lastly a side view.  The fabulous snowflakes die at the top is a Tim Holtz die and was in the gorgeous candy I won from Laine and this has been on my wish list for so long so thank you Laine big hugs.  The poinsettia is my usual Marianne Designs die and the swirl is Magnolia doohickey.  Papers are My Mind's Eye 'Wonderful Winter' and are lush all glittery and sparkly.  Sentiment is from Whimsy stamps.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay must dash going to spend a bit of time with the hubster don't want him feeling neglected and all and when he's gone to bed I can scoot back in my craft room he he!
Take care and happy crafting.
