Tilda's Town Challenge #41 - Christmas

This week's challenge at Tilda's Town is Christmas.  I love Christmas.  Our weather lately has been more Christmas than anything else, but we haven't been dumped on like the midwest.

My card for the challenge features Tilda on the Roof, Snowy Roof, Edwin's head and hat from Edwin Santa's Little Helper, and Edwin's beard from Sweet Christmas Edwin.  What fun putting this scene together was.

 All coloring was done with Copic Sketch markers - my very favorite!!

"Santa" must have been VERY surprised to find Tilda on the roof waiting for him!

The tinsel garland was found on line.
The poinsettias were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The inside of the card has Tilda Decorating Tree, Christmas Tree, Fireplace with Stockings, and mini Noel.  I glued a piece of the tiny tinsel across the mantel of the fireplace.

The tree is decorated with colored pearls and a gold star brad.  The tinsel was too big for the tree.  I tried!!

The sentiment is from 2012'2 Christmas Story Collection.

This was the view out my kitchen window about mid-morning.  I am SO happy that I didn't have to go out in that mess.
It was very beautiful!  The snowflakes were about the size of quarters and half dollars - huge.

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying my Christmas in February card.

I am entering this card in Tilda's Town challenge #41 Christmas .

This is so cute, Kathy. I love how Santa Edwin seems to be heading down the chimney and darling Tilda inside is decorating the tree.
Gorgeous snowy scene from the storms we've been having. We got 20 inches here in CO this week and will be 60 degrees this weekend. That makes for fantastic skiing weather.
