Midweek Magnolia's DT Creation

Hello everyone how are you all? Do you have any snow? If so where are you we are all coming play in it................we had a small sprinkling twice yesterday & that was it. We get the coldness but dont get much of the white stuff :0(

Anyhoo's I'm here today with my creation for Midweek Magnolia's & this fortnight the challenge is......
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
......yep get those creative juices flowing peeps,it could be a candle, a gift bag, a gift tag.........anything, just not a card. With christmas around the corner make someone a gift or a centre piece for your home.

I had sooooooo many idea's but had a kidney infection so my brain would say one thing & my body told it where to go...........politely of course ;0) 
So I made this, I brought the template thingy over a year ago & finally made it now lol.
This cute little sleigh is called 'Sleigh Ride' & its from My Time Made Easy. I lurve her templates & have a few..........yep but I've then neglected them :0( This was sooooooo easy to make that I will def get the rest of my templates made....

The paper I've used is Maja Design '1903' from the Vintage Summer Collection. I bashed the edges a bit ;0) & inked them with walnut distress ink.

The back I just added a sticker with gingerbread peeps on it lol. I got it as a free gift from a craft store 2 years ago. 

On the inside I added little red velvet bags which I'm gonna fill with sweets & chocs.........at the mo they are just filled with paper lol. I attached 2 gold bells to each sack.......it christmas & its santa's sleigh we need bells to hear him coming..... The santa in the middle was also in the sticker set so I just plopped him there lol.

This adorable Tilda is 'Christmas Eve Tilda' & I thought she was perfect for this sleigh :0)
I won a few weeks ago over at Totally Tilda (thanks again girls) anyhoos' the prize was £10 to spend at fabby Bunny Zoes............ So I brought this little girl as I didnt get her when I pre-ordered all of mine, I wasn't sure if I wanted her..........but then after I fell in love with her......typical isn't it.
Soooooo happy now though thank Nikki.

I made a poinsettia for the front with my Marianne Die. I've also added Snowtex to the ski thingies.....well cus Santa has been through lots of snow on his travels ;0)
Everything else used for this are just things from my stash.

Well I've not been in blogland for a few days so I'm gonna have a quick catch up now & will be round again later.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Big hugs to all that pop in mmwah
