Good Morning Ladies and I have no doubt its extremely cold in your neck of the woods, we had a light snow shower over night and the bird bath looks more like a skateing rink again and no doubt I shall be getting some rather rude looks from the birds when they find out.
Before I start with todays card I have to thank you all so much for giving me a really Wonderful Day yesterday, all the lovely birthday wishes from so many of you and the beautiful things you said as well, you made me blush to the roots but thank you it really made me feel so loved. I had two gorgeous bouquets, one from my daughter and one from a very lovely lady blogger friend of mine and Im not going to say her name she knows who she is, and some beautiful craft presents from my very lovely German friends, so girls THANK YOU for turning it into a wonderful day. My dear husband bought me a smart phone, hes now having trouble getting it set up I truly wasnt expecting to get anything as hed spoilt me rotten when we went to the NEC but he surprised me yesterday by taking me into the Carphone Warehouse and buying it for me, so thank you sweetheart you are the only one for me, and a pair of beautiful sheepskin bootee slippers to they are really toasty.
Now down to business todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge, its a sketch by Donalda, and Ive used this fabulous image of Tilda dressed up with a bauble and I image its a streamer in the other hand, anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I used the rectangle Nestabilitie to cut her out and the scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is yet another of the Magnolia stamps and this was treated in the same way.
The base card this time is a 6"x 6" white card with two of the Nitwit Downloads papers, this one is called "Joyful Hearts" and the first pattern is a red base with white snowflake design on, the second mount is a white base with lots of coloured fir tree pattern, under this I have used a strip of red pearlescent paper on which Ive used the fir tree border punch from Martha Stewart.
To finish of Ive created two snowflakes with some crushed glitter and mounted them at the bottom of the card on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
