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.
