Merry Christmas Everyone

Helloooooo I thought I would quickly pop on to show you a card I made a couple of weeks ago but havnt shown yet.
Its going to be a really quick post as I'm in the middle of baking & I've got the christmas gravy to make......I always do Jamie Olivers Christmas gravy as its soooooooo darn yummy. The link is here for anyone wanting to try it.....though I dont use star anise as I think its overpowering & I also dont use the sherry or port........but they are optional!!

I'm not going to be able put all the links to items used as I dont have time today but will pop back on at some point to add links.
I made this initially for All About Magnolia challenge but this months challenge is cancelled due to unforeseen it was made a month ago lol.

I've used a Marianne Doily die in the corner there, then Marianne Holly die, a couple of rose & a Kort Og Godt flower.
The trees are from the latest Magnolia Club Kit.
The pale pink lace & the white lace are from my stash. The papers are Maja Design Home For The Holidays.

The fence this side & the hearts are from the Magnolia Club Kit also.
On this piccy you can see the glitter better, I added snowtex to the bottom then sprinkled glitter while it was still wet. I also added Tim Holtz glitter to the gorgeous snowman that Tilda is building..

The snow-man is also from the club kit & I think was my favourite die in this kit......I love it!! This time I cut him out twice, 1 in white card then again in matching papers then popped him onto foam pads for dimension. Isn't he so darn cute ;-)

The penguin there is a Joy Crafts die from Noor Design UK & I inked him in Pumice Stone.
The fabulous stamp is Magnolia Me & My Snowman from the Aspen collection.....I coloured the image with distress ink refills & it was stamped onto Fabriano watercolour paper from Noor Design UK.

Well thats it from me but I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May you all be surrounded by love & happiness & your loved ones. May we spare a thought for those less fortunate than us & be thankful for everything & everyone we have in our lives.

Noor Design UK DT Post

Hello there everyone. Well its nearly the big day.......are you all ready? I wish I was lol, although I'm excited as I love Christmas, spending time with our loved ones, watching little grandkids opening pressies.....magical love the whole time. Except leading up to it when its manic lol.

Ok less of my babble & I will show you a christmas card, I was supposed to show 2 today but I've being poorly & didn't get the other one finished in time....but will show you after crimbo ;-)
Thankfully I made this a week ago & its a vintage christmas card today but cannot say who for incase they are peeking....which I'm sure they are & its in the post on its way to them ;-)
I'm so dis-organised this year :-(
I will start by saying how darn cute is this image.........although I did struggle to pick one & ended up doing eeny meeny miney mo lol.
Kept everything on a neutral colour scheme for this one as I thought it might go nice with the gorgeous vintage image from Pion Design.

Here we have some gorgeous flowers, the centre one being a free gift that came with the Magnolia Doohickey club kit. I've added pomegrante apples.......I love those & they can be used all year round & think they are the perfect add to flowers.
In front we have a cinnamon stick.........again lurve those so much. You can also see a rusty snowflake.......I absolutely love these metal rusty findings on creations as they add another texture to them & look fabulous!!

Under there is the Ice Crystal Swirl die-cut but you cannot see much of it here :-( I have added Scrapiniec which I sprayed white with normal white spray paint. I've also adde rusty bells with waxed cord, pomegrante apples & atg made with a Magnolia stamp....I love this stamp. 

This is the inside which I've kept quite plain but still complimenting the front. I have added a Happy Holidays Holly Leaves die & then added Memory Box stitched oval over the top to write on.
The papers are Maja Design I Wish collection & Ive inked, distressed & machine stitched the edges.

I've neglected this Skates die this year which is a shame, I inked parts of it with pumice stone. Added some seam binding, waxed cord, a snowman charm & a gorgeous bit of bling there.
Also added pearls along the bottom as you need pearls on a vintage card.....I'm sure its the law ;-)

You can just see the Scrapiniec in the corner, I added 1 in each opposite corner, left them plain but just inked the edges a little bit with pumice stone. I've hidden most of the lace for some stupid reason as its sooooo pretty.....I get carried away sometimes though when I'm adding foofiness lol.
There is a bark heart, another of my loves & you can see a couple of snowflakes which are form the new Whimsy Stamps Geometric Snowflake can use this as a whole or just parts of it.
I've also added Crackle Paste here & there. Sentiment at the bottom of image is form the bottom strip of a Maja Design sheet.

Well that is it from me as this is my last post for Noor Design UK before Christmas. I will be back this week with other makes, all will be scheduled lol.......this week Ithink is very busy for everyone lol.

Thanks for stopping by mmwah.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
