No Peeking!!


I'm so excited to be Guest Designing with my girls at Paper Sundae's this week!!  

This week's challenge is to Adorn Those Corners.  
You can use pearls, buttons, bling, stamps, corner rounder, etc...  (I finally was able to use these cute little metal photo corners I've had for seriously 8 + years!! )
 And our fabulous sponsor of this challenge is  


They have a HUGE selection of Magnolia's.
Which is where you can find Sneaky Tilda, Unwrapped Tilda ,Wedding Tilda and the Christmas Tree (which seems to be sold out at the moment).  

I was inspired a few weeks ago to create a door hanger for when you're wrapping gifts when I saw a little wooden sign in Cracker Barrel (A Country Restaurant) that said "Wrapping in Progress...No Peeking!"  I knew right away that I would use my Unwrapped Tilda and Christmas Tree.  But a few days later I saw Mindy Baxter's card where she grouped a few Tilda's together like this and decided that the more Tilda's the merrier!!  :)

Here you can see it hanging on my craft closet door.

I thought this would take me FOREVER to color and started becoming intimidated by it.  So I sat down one evening after dinner and just started coloring while chatting my husband.  It did take me almost 3 hours but I was finished just in time to put the kids to bed.  The next morning I put everything together and added some sparkle!  I wish you could see this in real life.  When the light hits the Christmas tree it looks like it's lit up and shining, it's so beautiful.    I only added Stickles on their hair bows, the Christmas tree and the ribbons on the packages.  I really didn't want to over do it.  The sentiment is computer generated and has Stickles along the edge too.  I also used my last sheet of Bo Bunny ('Tis the Season) DP.  :(

Eeeeeek! Oh my word, this is the CUTEST!! Love your amazing coloring! Seriously...WOWWWW!

Paula said...

Don't I know the intimidation.......I couldn't believe when I saw you'd done 3 images - it would have taken me 3 days at least.... Anyhow I think this is terrific & I love the way you've done different hair colours on each - shall come back for another look but am trying to catch up as lost a few days with a cold & migraines. Hope everything OK your end.

You just never cease to amaze me!! This is incredible!! I love those little metal photo corners too. I was hoping they were some sort of punch/emboss set so I could find the tool to make them as well. Your colouring is stunning and I'm so pleased you could pass the time away with your favourite man as you worked away. Sounds like a wonderful evening to me!
