Merry Christmas ...

I have a little book box card today with a snow scene shaker inside using the gorgeous new Fall Stamp Club 2015 from Magnolia & the Doohickey Club Kit Vol 7  both lovely new kits and I couldn't wait to get started.

Also in the new Doohickey Kit is this gorgeous snow scene which I have put together with a few
extra hills just by slotting in the layers of the book effect.  
Some snow & some acetate for the window.
Again the fern, fronds, snowflake, icicle & flourish are from the new Doohickey Kit.

What else have I used, well I had some goodies from The Ribbon Girl including the pearls, cheesecloth, sparkle web, rusty bells, pink ribbon & button.

Plenty of TH distressing, Gesso, hand stitching, coloured with Winsor & Newton Promarkers.

Finally I have used papers from NITWIT COLLECTIONS

How old?

Well I have to say, I just loooove these Tim Holtz Crazy Birds along with the Crazy Things,
just so adorable and there is a bird for everyone!

Pretty simple, cg sentiment (I didn't stretch to the sentiment stamps) and coloured
with Promarkers.  I popped a little sparkle on the hat as a finishing touch.

You can also buy the dies to cut these cuties out here.
