final for 2016...

Hi all

Well can you believe we are a week away from Christmas! heck. And two weeks away from the New year! WOW. So this is my last post for 2016...its been a interesting old year again!

So for the last time this year I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Simply Magnolia - Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Silent Night
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias- Christmas

So this is a new style of card for me for this year, and i do rather love them. Its a peek-a-boo card and the tutorial can be found here Peek-a-boo card with Norma Lee. Such a good tutorial.

The images I used are the Magnolia animals , the little penguin and the little polar bear. They are lovely. I coloured both these little guys with Distress inks. The papers are from Pion Design. I love these and you can feel the peacefulness coming off them, it almost like you can hear the snow falling and that beautiful calmness from these papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The star pin I cannot for life of me remember where i got it from. The snowflake charm was in my stash. The lace is from the ever fabulous Noor! Design UK. I also used Structure paste which you can find at Noor! Design UK along with the beautiful white lace I used.

The border die cut is from a Magnolia die and I edged it simply with flat back pale blue pearls.

And that is it!

Hope everyone has a peaceful happy Christmas no matter what you do. Enjoy and I shall see you in 2017 for more crafting adventures.

Snow ball fight *ducks*

DUCK!!!! Yes its a snowball fight! lol well maybe not in real life here but I am sure some of my crafty friends are getting ready to throw a few over the next few weeks/ months!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Santa is coming to town
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog- Christmas in pastels or tones
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
Magnolia-licious challenge blog- Need a little Christmas
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes Christmas
Simply Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes

so 7 in total!

I used the fabulous twist and pop card tutorial which is from Kaisercraft blog, you can find the tutorial here Twist and Pop. Its such an effective card and always makes people smile. The tutorial is just fabulous too.

I used 'Snow scarf Tilda' from a few releases looks like she is having fun throwing those snowballs!!! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers are from the Pion design collection from last Christmas...again the elf got me. I love an elf!

The images inside are from the mini Magnolia collection and they are also coloured with Distress Inks.

Now to the flower...wowzers!!! I love this die! It can be found at the awesome Noor! Design UK and it just cuts so gorgeous. The glitter papers *swoooon* are from my local craft shop....and yes I went back and bought more of them!!

The icicle die can also be found at Noor!design UK, as can the Little Darlings rubber stamps die that features at the top on the front of the card.

On the front I used a brad for the middle of the flower, a clear rhinestone brad. This is on the band that holds the twist and pop in place while closed. I used some velcro on the back of the band so it can open and save sliding over the car.

To finish off I added some Structure past to add texture, and some glitter glue and a pair of gloves charm as you always need your gloves on for a snowball fight!

Hope you have a great week.

Ruddy is shaking is tail feather!

Well hello!!!

WOW peoples we are in December!!! DECEMBER!!!!! Where did that come from!!! heck! So tomorrow me and hubby are going to be wrestling the tree out of the box! Already got the baking under way but heck DECEMBER MAN PEOPLE!!! its just gone so fast 2016!

So I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Simply Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Santa is coming to town
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Need a little Christmas
Noor! Design UK challenge blog- Sparkle
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge blog- Christmas in tones or pastels

So I made this card a few weeks ago for my fabulous friend Bek who I met when we lived in Tom Price. I have been hanging on to blog it until she received it and now she has here we go!

I used the image 'Little Rudolph' from Magnolia and he is one of my fave animal images that they have done....ever! The pure joy on his face, that little smile is just so adorable! I coloured the little fella with Distress Inks.

I decided to make him into a shaker card as I think he would have a blast playing around in the sparkles! I used glitter and beads as the shaker material. The shaker pouch is from Impression Obsession.

The papers....ohhhh I love these...and again I have been hording them for the right card, the right image and finally it fell into place. These papers are from the Shabby Chic paper collection which you can get from Noor!Design UK. I have to admit I ordered three of these pads lol! I love that pale/pastel / soft blue.

The die cuts around the image are from Magnolia Ink. The shape of the card is from Go Create. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The winter die cut on the bottom of the snow globe is from Noor!Design. The snow globe shape and the deer are both from Impression Obsession. of my fave embellies that I have also been hording (see how much I think of you Bek that I handed over one of these lol!) is the darling reindeer paperclip that I attached to the top corner of the tags. This i got from Stampin' Up last year.

Finally, I tied through some bright red shabby chic binding to finish off.

Hope you have a great weekend.
