Hello Everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! My hubby and I had a quiet Christmas Day and New Year's Eve! I came down with Shingles the Thursday before Christmas along with a cold, so we spent it at home and we had minestrone soup and french bread for Christmas dinner. I usually prepare a nice dinner for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but I just wasn't able to do it. If you've had the chickenpox, I would recommend that you get the Shingle Shot that is available. It is no fun having Shingles! It is so painful! I know I will be getting the shot as soon as I am completely well, because they can reoccur over and over again. It seems like more and more people are coming down with Shingle nowadays, especially due the busy lifestyles that most of us lead.
Well, it is time for the very first challenge of the New Year at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The challenge is being hosted by the talented Chris.
For this Color Challenge, Chris has chosen these winter colors!
I hope it inspires you to play along with us! All you need to do is to use a MAGNOLIA IMAGE on your card or project. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of a Special Surprise Gift from Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Magnolias and many other wonderful things.
For my card, I have used Digi Design Papers from Shery K Designs - Cacao Collection that I purchased at MyGrafico. I received some images from the new With Love Collection the other day from Magnolia-licious and had to use the Tilda with Love Potion. I think she is perfect for a New Year's Card as well as for a Valentine's Day Card, a Wedding Card, a Congratulations Card, and so many more occasions! Tilda was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced her dress and shoes and added some sparkle using Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen to the dress, and the heart bubbles. You really can't see it on Tilda's dress in the picture, but it looks really pretty in person. The Silver Roses are from Recollections. The White Semi-Open Rosebuds are Wild Orchid Crafts. The Silver Glitter Fronds are from Michaels. The Sheer Silver Ribbon and Silver Glitter Paper are from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit today! I hope you take a moment to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards that my teammates have created!! I also hope you stop by Magnolia-licious to see all the wonderful deals that Diana is offering.
I wish you all a wonderful New Year with Good Health, Much Happiness and Happy Crafting!
