Hi everyone, hope you’ve had a good weekend and getting there with everything for Christmas. We haven’t ventured out…..to much snow which has turned to ice! A card today for My time to craft where the challenge this time is Yuletide Greetings. I’ve stamped the cute Magnolia Tilda with Christmas cracker and water coloured her with Ranger distress inks. The Woodware sentiment is stamped with versafine brown ink, I added stickles and cut out with an oblong nestabilities die. Punched a hole for the ribbon with a Stampin’ Up! slot punch (thanks Dena x) then threaded through the gingham ribbon around the lovely Magnolia gingerbread paper. There's some distressing on the paper, doodling and faux stitching. TFL and take care if you’re out in the ice today.

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a nice Sunday so far. It’s raining here, just for a change, so staying inside today. A card today for Just Magnolia where the challenge is ‘It’s Christmas’, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has a theme of ‘Snow’ this week and Simon Says Stamp Challenge is ‘Let it Snow’.
I’ve used the gorgeous Magnolia ‘Frosty with snowflake’ from the ‘So Snowy’ collection, water coloured with distress inks, cut the image out with circle nesties and then added stardust stickles, doodling and sponging around the edge. The background paper is from the Magnolia winter collection and I’ve added some punched snowflakes, the larger of which is embossed with the CB snow embossing folder. To finish off I added some more doodling and edge sponging and iridescent gems. I used the the sketch from last week’s Friday Sketchers for the layout, thought it was a nice one. Have a lovely Sunday. TFL.
