Magnolia Advent Calendar - Shutter #15

Hello dear readers ..

Today is my turn to serve you on the 15th day of the tradition Magnolia Advent Calendar.


as we are approaching to the middle of this December, means we are almost close to the Christmas eve :)

... it's starting with the some snow ..


Before we dive deep down into my blog post today, I would love to share a table decoration for this Christmas, it comes with a simple winter scene .. I am thinking of a White Christmas although here in the country I live we don't have any snow and the weather just rainy outside, I still love to have a snowbank on a glass :)

I make the wintery scene using a diecut from Magnolia DooHickey dies Big House and also the white tree cutting from the Christmas kit - DooHickeys Club

Some white paint I used along with dry glitter and everything is going smoothly beautiful glittery.

if you want to get a try to make this yourself, grab some salt to make the snowbank :) 

Christmas ...is  not just a word! it's mean a lot including Peace - Love - Joy



 Please let me warn you that I have a long post today but I am hoping so much that you will last to read and enjoy my post till the end ♥

Long time ago in Bethlehem ..


I love every images that come from Magnolia, but I can say that the Nativity is my most favorite ones, especially for Christmas. I stamp the Nativity Background  using a pigment ink - moonlight and doing some water coloring on it.
The vocal image is Twinkle Star Tilda from the latest collection - Waiting for Christmas

 
...
long time ago in Bethlehem
so the holy bible say
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
was born on Christmas day
hark now hear the angels sing
a new king was born today
and man will live forever more
because of Christmas day
...

oh it was a beautiful feeling when I listen that song,
and I got the inspiration to make my second Christmas card;


December - Christmas - Winter
aren't they are too beautiful for words ? The most wonderful time of the year! and I ever got the most beautiful early Christmas give on my life .. I gave my second son birth on 15th December and now .. he turns 15 years old and  nothing is better than being a mother

 
I stamped  Tilda in The Forest - Christmas Story 2012 on a piece of water color paper and I paint the winter background myself :)
lots of winter picture inspired me, but the most I love is the Swedish Lapland ♥
I wish .. I did it well, as I am not a good painter but I have so much love to the winter Lapland of Sweden.

This is the last photo, I promise :)

I would love to spot the wintery, the village and the snowbank over the hill.. and I Believe in the magic of Christmas!

I would love to say Thank you so much to Magnolia, that bring me a lot of happiness through the beautiful stamps they created, and although I spent  my time to caring my family the most nowadays, but they always good to me.
Also to all of you, my lovely readers around this word, you are my beautiful inspirations.

Okay, this is the end of my post so don't forget to leave your words because you will have a chance to win a secret present send directly to your doorstep by Magnolia!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you all :

Merry {early} Christmas!!!

Love from far away Indonesia,
Yulis

p.s. Tomorrow Maki will be on her shutter #16 :)
