Three Christmas Cards for March Hjertebodens Jule blog

Good morning everyone and a very happy March 1st!! Spring is just around the corner now....yipppeeee!!!! It is time again for the monthly Christmas card submissions at Hjertebodens Yule Blog. The first card features Star Tilda and Lucia Tilda from the 2010 Christmas collection. Both of these cuties are available for purchase at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. The papers I used are from the BG Wassail collection and the swirl is a Tim Holtz die. I used gold Mirro paper for the swirl and it does not photograph very well. The beautiful lace and flowers were from my sweet friend....I thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of me in such a special way!!! Both Tildas are colored with copics.
The second card, of course, is a hAnglar. It features papers by Bo Bunny's Midnight
Frost collection. The trees and border are Marianne dies and the flowers were a gift from my dear sweet friend, Jacque. This sweet image is colored with distress inks.
The final card is another hAnglar, also colored with distress inks. I followed a sketch created by the very talented TINEKE. The papers are designed by Gudrun Loennecken. The lovely gold corner and flowers were a gift from dear Jacque. Love it...thanks so much!!!
I hope you like my submissions. Thank you so very much for visiting. Your support is greatly appreciated. Hugs, Christina

  5. OMG!! i havent visited for sooo long and you are doing such amazing cards i am sure i missed out on loads of wonderful inspiation, TFS

  6. Oh Christina these are all so lovely! The embellishments are fabulous and your coloring is fantastic. I definitely need to start now on my Christmas cards. Every year I say I'm going to make my Christmas cards and every year I get behind and end up buying them (it doesn't help that we have about 6 birthdays to celebrate that month!). Great job! Hugs, Rosemary

  7. Wow! I just don't know which one I like the most! They are all so adorable and so different from one another! What a great job! Each one has its special quality - I love the colors on the first, the design of the third, and those trees on the middle one. The trees just draw the eye to the stamped image! Beautiful times three!

    (I hurt my right hand so it's leftie hunt & peck for me...lol)


  9. These all are absolutely adorable. I especially love the little shepherd because I collect Nativity stamps. It makes me so sad that we in the US cannot get the hAnglar stamps. They are my favorites. I know there are some on Ebay but I cannot afford the inflated prices ($35-$60). Kay
