Time For Magnolia Challenge - Inspired By A christmas Song

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Well the sun is trying to get his hat on today............hopefully he will............I'm loving all this sunshine we have been getting ;0)

Anyhoo's I was asked to be Guest Designer over at Time For Magnolia Challenges & of course I said yes.............of course ;0) The challenge is a super duper one.........
INSPIRED BY A CHRISTMAS SONG easy peasy is that!!!

Ok I went for 'Hark The Herald Angels Sing' & finally inked my other angel up from last year ;0)
When my hubster saw this card he said 'Ooh this is lush, it reminds me of winter'...........of course my answer was 'thats cus its a CHRISTMAS card my darling'...........honestly men lol.

I've used a few Marianne Designs dies on this & smothered them in Shabby Blue Fran-tage, love this stuff its like no other embossing enamel.

I decorated the inside as always & made a pocket to slip tags into............Magnolia Doo-Hickey tags will be going in but I still havnt unpacked all my Magnolia dies lol.
I will stamp a sentiment on one & leave the other blank to write a personal message on, left them both blank for now.
This is 'Little Tilda' and I coloured her with Copics & added background shading with prisma pencil & added fran-tage.
E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R32, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
C3, C1, C00, BOO, B000
The 3 roses are from WOC & I made 2 rolled flowers with Marianne Dies, fran-taged them up & added white Gesso Paint everywhere.

The ribbon is East Of India & I added mini Pom-Pom trim. The gorgeous papers are Magnolia
 'Christmas Toys' & 'Angels Calling' which was perfect given the song I was inspired by lol. The middle strip of paper inside is a scrap piece of Pion paper ;0)

Pop on over to the challenge blog to see the ladies creations, they are soooooooo talented!!

Will be back tomorrow with some news, those that are on my facebook already know but I will tell you the story of my rollercoaster week last week. Believe me its a good story...........scary & daunting but goooood lol.

Right I'm off to catch up with my messages etc. Thank you soooo much for stopping by, your visit means the world mmwah.

Big squishy hugs &lots of  funky love xxxxxxxxxxxxx
