Tilda with Christmas Tree

by Myrna Irwin

Well, here we are with 20 days left until Christmas as some people’s blogs like to flaunt in our procrastinator faces!!!! Although, we celebrate the 24th in the evening. So that means I have 19 days left!!! I’m not worried I have three cards left, both trees have lights or will by tonight. That means I only have my decorating and baking to do. Hmmmm, then I wonder why I don’t sleep at night. LOL It will get done. 🙂

Ok, I decided I’m likin’ that dark red. I liked it so much that I colored another one dark red. I like this one even better than the first. Of course, it has a pine tree with it and I love how pines look and smell in the forest. There’s nothing that makes my heart beat faster than to drive through mountains of pine! Heaven!

All you gals who like glitter should like this card. LOL Oh, what a mess!!!

  24. Myrna,
    Love everything you’ve done with this card!! I’ve always been a fan of glitter even though it is messy!! Reminds me of our childhood days-no worries! I just ran across a picture of Nikki when she was five years old with that very same hair style. Do you remember that picture in her two piece pink polk- a -dot outfit? So I immediately thought there is little Nikki. I don’t know how you keep doing every card more beautiful than the next. You have inpsired Rick and I to get our beautiful Christmas tree decorated this evening and ENJOY the Advent season as we joyfully anticipate the joys of Christmas.


  25. Sweet card. Love the little tree.

  26. Wow Myrna, your coloring is absolutely beautiful!! I really like it!



  27. Beautiful Myrna,
    I really like your shading that you added!
