Hi everyone, I hope all is good with you.
I've got another card to toss in the pile,
how is everyone else doing with that?
Caught up, barely starting, DONE??
I think I am about 40% above sinking.
This is something I've cooked up with some
of my superyummy supplies the gorgeous Kellie sent.
I am glad I went ahead and placed the bulk of my
Christmas Magnolia order with
Magnolia Down Under
because if I hadn't, I'd still be waiting for them!!!
You can find the lace, papers, and the
adorable Christmas Eve Tilda here.
That lace is super yummy, a very tightly stitched
and detailed variety, I am hooked!!
Some laces are rather flimsy and lack fine detail,
not so with this fabby stuff!!
Okay, enough about lace, onto the card!!
Beyond Magnolia products,
I've used Martha Stewart punches,
Bazzill cardstock, tea roses "Stickled" in gold
and I've coloured in distress inks.
I love the saturation of colour I get with them and
the availability to layer on tones is nice.
I resisted the urge to glitter and shadow her
thinking that it let her look more rustic??? Maybe???
I've gone along with the challenge SPLURGE and will
be popping this in over at:
Colour Create whose colours are green, red and white,
with the optional extra, naturally being Christmas!!
Cupcake Crafts who are hosting a colour challenge
of green and red,
Just Magnolia provided the wonderful sketch,
I loved this, I think I will use it in excess!!
The Pink Elephant set a challenge of colouring in our favourite medium, and when I've got the patience to experiment with it, distress inks are DEFINITELY my favorite!!
Crafty Creations is hosting a challenge that is right up my alley, Lace and Distressing, so I'm going to join in there for the first time, and
Stamp With Fun is hosting a Christmas Challenge, and I want to pledge allegiance to The Waffler Kellie, so I will play over there for the first time as well.
that you are enjoying yourselves.
I give you permission to take some time out
of this crazy seasons happenings to take a hot bath
or eat half a pound of chocolate alone in your craft room.
Just tell your family, "It's okay, Dr. Stephanne said!!"
