MDUC Colour Challenge - Red, Gold & Cream

Good morning everyone I hope you are ready for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge. This time we have a colour challenge for you - red, gold and cream. I LOVED this colour challenge and had fun making yet again another Christmas card.

I have actually used gold embossing around the layer between the designer paper and the red cardstock. There snowflakes on the panel behind Tilda are also embossed in gold. The snow droplets around Tilda and the ground she is standing on are gold stickles. Oh course the photo does it no justice. 

I am also entering this card into the Simply Magnolia Challenges - Christmas.

So we look forward to seeing what you come up with. We are now going on a break over Christmas but will be back in January. 

In case I don't get back here before Christmas now I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and hope that the day is filled with lots of love and laughter. May the year ahead be kind to you and your loved ones. Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me and to my regulars thank you for always making the effort to pop in.

I know I have been a bad blogging buddy this year but I promise next year to improve. 

So until next time,

Tickled Pink Stamps sponsoring Cute Card Thursday

Good morning everyone

We are getting closer and closer to Christmas now and I am hoping that you are all organised. We have one week left of school and for me work before some much needed time off, yippee....

This week Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is stripes, nice and easy.

I have used Pinkette August for my card today. Isn't she cute?

A fairly simple card but the paper was very full on and adding lots on just did not work so I had to go plain and simple. I really liked the end effect though.

The sentiment is also from tickled Pink Stamps. I love them because they are so crisp...

Anyhow that is all for me today, thanks for stopping by until next time

Some reviews over at Tickled Pink Stamps

Good morning everyone hopefully this post finds you all well.

Today at Tickled Pink Stamps we are reviewing some of the gorgeous Pinkette christmas images. I loved this range and have used them heaps this season as they are really quick and easy to use.

So I am showcasing Pippa today. I have to admit with every release Pippa has been my favorite.

So if you still have a few chrissie cards to make why not jump over to the TPS store and grab yourself one of these cuties.

Off to work for me today so this is where I will leave it. I am looking forward to the Christmas holidays as I will be able to slow down a bit and actually write proper posts and visit everyone and leave comments.

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time

Maggie Lovers Challenges - Aussie Christmas

I'm sorry my post is a few days late but I had it set in blogger and it did not post and then I just have not had a chance till now to get it posted.

It's time for a new challenge at Maggie Lovers Challenges and this time we want to see your Aussie Christmas Cards. By now most of you would know that Bron has organised her own exclusive Tilda called Koala Hugs Tilda and it was with this stamp in mind that she created the theme for this current challenge.

So I have gone for earthy colours and my flower with sentiment in it actually to me represents the sun.

So what are you waiting for...start creating!

Thanks for stopping by today until next time

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Christmas Ornament

Good morning everyone hopefully you are all well and the silly season is not effecting you too much at the moment.

We are off to take the kids to the carols tonight which end with fireworks. They are slightly excited.

This week at Magnolia Down Under we would like to see your creative juices flowing and you to create a christmas ornament/decoration. This can be something to hang from your tree of perhaps  it could be a like mine and a banner.....I have to say that the DT have excelled themselves this time and the creations on show are just fantastic. Plenty of inspiration for you all.

Now I showed you the other day my coloured christmas magnolia images and today I can show you the final project.

Here is a close up of each individual piece

I have to say that I am really happy with how this turned out and my kids just love it and cant wait for me to hang it up. I love making something each year to decorate the house for christmas and seeing the kids eyes light up.

I am also going to enter this into the current Just Magnolia challenge- Anything Goes

Well that is all for me today. Thank you for stopping by and your lovely comments they really make my day.

Until next time
