I hope you've been crafting up a storm!!
The time has come for
Magnolia Down Under
to post a new challenge,
and wouldn't you know,
the theme is Valentines Day!!!
Hearts, reds, pinks, frilly things, etc.
We'd like you to warm our hearts
with your romantic side, wink wink ;)
Well, I was besmitten by Cupid and over the course of a few days crafted this Valentiney creation. Actually, this is the hardest challenge I've taken part in lately. Let's just say it wasn't coming to me. All that talk about Cupid was a lie!There was, however, a wonderful envelope of Valentines supplies in my mailbox from my lovely blogger buddy Sue that I've put to use straight away, thanks for saving my project Sue, things were looking pretty grim for a while there.
Challenges that begin with the letter C, Alex.
Crafty Creations is hosting a textures challenge,
Creative Inspirations is hosting a distressing challenge,
the sketch is from the truly talented Chelsea of
Crafting Lifes Pieces and at
Charisma Cardz there is an
Anything New Challenge.
As some of you may have noticed,
I was the random lady to win a
7 Kids College Fund
gift certificate at Just Magnolia,
and I've used it to get the following new goodies:
Made with love charm, spica pen,
and Zva Create blossoms,
I also picked out another Mag to add to the family,
she'll be making her debut in the next month or so,
thanks 7 Kids and Just Magnolia :)
In addition to the products previously mentioned,the images are coloured in distress inks, Stickled here and there, white gel pen here and there, Spica pen here and there, cut out and placed on a doily on top of a wonderfully embossed peice of paper from Sue and I believe that she uses a Cuttlebug, that amazing heart doily is handmade by Sue's sis, the punch used for my leafy things is a maple leaf punch by Martha Stewart, lace, ribbon, pins and pearl strings are from me old stash box, love charm is Blue Moon and the heart brads are from Kaiser. I've distressed in Vintage photo and stickled in gold around the edges of the distressed Bazzill Kraft cardstock. I've sewn up the side of my papers for some extra flare.
Well, I bet that anyone reading this
is ready to take a nap,
sorry about the rambling.
Be sure and stop in over at
Magnolia Down Under
and see what sort of fun stuff is happening,
hint hint, we are looking for guest designers ;)
Til Next Time,
