I hope you are warmer than I am today,
at a bonechilling 16 degrees farenheit,
I will be hard pressed to slither
my way out of the cave today!!
We ladies at Magnolia Down Under
were set a challenge by the amazingly talented
to make a party invitation
with our wonderful Christmas kits that
The Waffling Boss Lady Kellie sent us.
So after much anticipation,
my stamps arrived and I got straight to work!!
Firstly I must apologize for the photos,
there is no natural light out here lately,
so I had to make do with what I had and well,
I guess that is meant as an apology to myself,
since I am the one who notices it the most, eh?
I was lucky enough to be assigned
Tilda with Crackers
as my design team stamp.
The moment I saw this, I "NEEDED" it,
I just see that ornament, fixated on it really,
it could pop right off the page if one felt so inclined...
So then, my mission was clear, lol.
She is adorable!!
I love her hair in this stamp!!
I've coloured in distress inks,
the ball is done up in Gold Lame Smooch
and then coated in Crystal Lacquer and
popped up on foam mounts.
She's bordered in Gold Stickles.
I wish I could say FIND HER HERE,
but she is sold out at MDU!!
You can, however, head over to find
this lace, the wire star, and the papers!!
There are still a selection of new stamps,
check them out HERE.
I've created this with a few challenges in mind:
Stampin' For the Weekend
wants to see traditional colours of red, green and gold
and Sketch Saturday
provided me with the layout,
though my interpretation is rather loose.
Everybody Art Challenge is hosting a
red and green colour combo challenge,
Pile It On is hosting a
Tinsel Town challenge, use your glittery blingy stuff!!
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential
are hosting a Christmas Flowers challenge.
Well, I hope Jodie approves of my creation
and she can make it to my party this Christmas...
I will be back tomorrow!!
