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!!

My Crafty Heart DT Card - Lhasa Apso

Good morning my lovelies hope you all had a fabulous weekend. As normal for me at the mo I'm running late, we had a roller coaster of a week last week, cannot go into details yet though, so I'm wee bit behind on things.
Anyway finally here is my card for My Crafty Heart, I've had this made for over a week now lol, better late than never though lol.
I've made a card with one of Mo Manning gorgeous digi images, I've been neglecting them lately so I thought I would dig out this cutie......
This is the cute Lhasa Apso, its soooooooooo cute!!!

Would you believe I've finally used my Punch Around The Page punches............its only took me.....actually I cant even remember how long these have been out lol.........well its took me since then lol. I also added White Frantage around the edge ;0)

Ok starting with top left corner we have...........Prima 'Butterfly', Bo Bunny 'Trinket', Melissa Francis 'Edwardian Frame' & a Prima 'Rose Flower'.

I coloured the gorgeous 'Lhasa Apso' in with Copics & Prisma Pencils. I dont have the colours as although the card has been done for just over a week, the image I coloured over a month ago, sorry :0(

The white lace is from my stash & I've added some gorgeous Melissa Francis 'Lace Trim'. The gorgeous yummy papers are from my favourite Prima pad 'Lyric', sooooo love this pad!! I also cut a 'Friend' word from one of the sheets & added it into the MF 'Frame'. The sentiment tags on the image are from
 Little Darlings designed by the lovely Mindy Baxter.

I've tried keep my foofiness to a minimum...........tried I said ;0)

Okie dokie my lovelies I better go as I have my grandaughter coming up, she is spending her days with Nanna & Gramps. Will try my best get round to see you all later.

Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & for all your support it really means a lot.

Squishy hugs & funky love to all mmwah xxxxxxxxxxx
