Tilda's Christmas Present

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving, and those of you that braved the Black Friday sales...bless your heart.  We had a wonderful day yesterday with lots of delicious food....ALL made exclusively by me : )  I was so relieved when it was all made, all turned out wonderfully and all cleaned up.  Today will be spent relaxing for a little bit and then pulling out the Christmas decorations.  I was not interested in Black Friday this year and am happy to miss it. 

I wanted to share a Tilda Christmas card with you that I think may go to my little niece this year.  What a sweet image this one is.  Lots and lots of detail and sparkle and shine on this one.  I hope you enjoy.  Have a wonderful holiday weekend full of happy blessings for you.

Happy Thanksgiving and some more M5D releases

Just a quick post for me today as I want to spend the day with my family,  and I have a TON of cooking to do.  I am so thankful and grateful for so many blessings this year, and I am thankful for all of my blogger friends for their support and friendship this year.  I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you have many blessings to be thankful for too.

I hope you will enjoy the new McMahon Five Releases below.  I made a gift tag with the cancer awareness wreath.  I love making little gift tags for the holidays, and it really makes the packages pretty too.  Before we know it, the big day will be here, and I haven't even finished buying my gifts yet.  If you would like to grab this image up for the holidays, you can get this FREEBIE AT McMahon Five Designs right now.  How's that for a little gift on Thanksgiving Day : )

Sugar Plum Fairy and a Sweet Mouse

I have some new M5D releases to share with you today....just in time for the holidays.  I chose to make my sugar plum fairy card a bit more on the neutral side.  It does give the perspective that you can use this image for something beyond Christmas.  I like to mix it up a little sometimes ;)
My second image is a really cute mouse by Shawne Arnold, and I decided to make this a combined ornament/gift tag.  I am participating in Operation Christmas Child, and I am attaching this to my package that will be shipped to a needy child somewhere in the world for Christmas this year.  I think from a very early age that I enjoyed giving gifts a little bit more than receiving them.  It's such a warm and happy feeling to know that you may bring a moment of happiness to someone by such a small gesture.  If you would like to join in this brilliant program to help a child smile this holiday season, there is still a little bit of time left.  The last day to drop your package off is November 22nd.  You can find out if there is a local drop-off site in your area by clicking HERE.  I had so much fun shopping for this.

Sweet Christmas Clara...M5D New Releases

Well, the day we have been waiting for is finally here.....the new McMahon Five Design releases are out.   The image that I chose to use for my sample is one of my favorite images of the bunch.  They are all amazing and sweet images, but I fell in love with sweet Clara as soon as I saw her.  Isn't she beautiful?  I couldn't resist using this beautiful shade of blue and lots of delicate flowers and pretty ribbon to really show off the beauty of this gorgeous image.   There are lots of images to choose from, and I am sure that there is something to please anyone on your card list or even to make an altered item with.  Don't you just love that with these digital images that you can pretty much make what you want and any size you want?  The possibilites are endless.
