Tilda & Friends ATC: 'baby it's cold outside'

ATC theme this week is 'warm & cozy' which immediately makes me think indoors, in front of a fire. However I made a tilda card in front of the fire not long ago and didn't want to repeat myself. So ran with the 'indoors' theme and came up with this . .

All stamps are from the current christmas/winter Magnolias and the window has acetate 'glass panes' and is raised on foam pads so that the snowy scene outside looks like it's in the distance and Tilda is nice and snug inside :) Stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks and twinkling H2o's. The scene outside has lots of snow and glitter added. The sentiment (typed out with ATB tapewriter) just seemed to fit plus I'd just finished watching 'Elf' so had that song stuck in my head (love that movie, so funny) :)!

Hope you're all keeping warm and having a good week. See you tomorrow for CCT.
