Christmas Hugs

Hi Friends!
This Magnolia stamp of Tilda is called 'Tilda wants a hug' and she can brought from Diana here. She is from the 2010 Christmas collection. My dear friend gave this stamp to me for Christmas. Wasn't I blessed?
The card is quite a simple one for posting. I have found out the hard way how much it costs to post cards with all the trimmings.
I have colored Tilda once again with Distress inks.
Her dress is colored with Dusty Concord
Hair: Walnut stain
Face: Antique Linen
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Holly in her hair: Bundled sage and berries.. Barn door.
