Something For You and Me!!

I am sooooo excited to share with you all that I have been invited to be on the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog Design Team!! I am so honored to be apart of this wonderfully talented and amazing team!! They all have inspired me with their gorgeous cards and creative projects!! It is like a dream come true!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog we are being hosted by the talented Mina.  This weeks challenge is to use ribbon on a card or project. I know that you all have some ribbon in your stashes that you have been wanting to use, so I hope that you come and join us. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be this week's lucky winner of a wonderful prize from Wild Orchid Crafts!!

For my very first Design Team Card, I used Season's Greetings Digital Design Papers from Echo Park - Paper Pack #1 and #2. I also used Season's Greetings Digital Element Pack #1 for the tree and the saying.   Something For You Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Copics, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.           I added Doodlebug White Flock to Tilda's hat and dress with Sakura Quickie Glue. I used ek Success 3/8 inch Ribbon Scallop Border Punch and threaded some Organza Ribbon from my stash through it. The poinsettias are from Prima - Holiday Poinsettia Calypso Tin. The gifts are stickers from Sandylion Essentials. I die cut the holly with #656293 Phrase, Noel w/Holly & Frame Sizzilits Decorative Strip.

I have so many things to be thankful for this year!! One of them being all of you!! Thank you so much for visiting and leaving such sweet comments for me!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Poinsettias For All Of You

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!! I spent some time this weekend getting together Christmas DP's, embellishments, and dies that are in my stash. I have used some of the things I found on my card!! I have made it for the Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar Special Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes with the Option of  Pearls and Lace.

For this card, I used SEI Christmas Mint Marzipan and Nonparelis DP's. Tilda with Hood from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Our Craft Lounge Sugar Sparkly Fluff and Doodlebug White Flock to the fringe of Tilda's coat. I kept adding Sakura Quickie Glue and fluff and flock until I got the thickness that I wanted. The white roses, white rosebuds, and white lace with pearls are from my stash. The large poinsettia is from the floral department at Michaels. I removed it from the stem and added a pearl brad from K and Company to the center. The holly was cut using  Sizzix Border Die #656293 Phrase, Noel with Holly and Frame. The red rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  They were a gift from my very talented and sweet friend Jacque. Thank you Sweetie!! I love them!! The red berries are large red pearl beads that I threaded on a green wire, so they could be added to the arrangement.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I really do appreciate it!! I have some very exciting news to share with you in a couple of weeks!! I can't wait to tell you!!
Have a wonderful day!!
