Anything Goes for Simply Magnolia

 Good Morning Friends
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day and that the Jolly Fat Man left you lots of lovely crafting goodies.
I am still enjoying the festivities with another Christmas dinner today, and again tomorrow with son and four year old granddaughter who will be visiting from Dorset. That's three Christmas dinners in a row now.
I soon will be as fat as a turkey and start to gobble like one!
Well, we are half way through our challenge of
at Simply Magnolia and I have made a card for you.
Catching Stars Tilda was painted with Distress inks. She is stitched to a Spellbinders die and glitter and tiny sequins and beads have been added to her crown, wand and stars. Above the card is a Joy Craft Star die which has also been Glamour Dusted and sequined. 
I added a doily, lace, gesso'd flowers and a seam binding bow.

I really enjoyed making this card. After all the Christmassy ones, It was JUST SO refreshing.
Sending Hugs To All

SIMPLY MAGNOLIA -Christmas is coming midway reminder

Christmas is coming midway reminder
Hi friends, I'm back with my post for Simply Magnolia today, hoping you will join us in our Christmas Challenge.
You still have a week left to enter to be in with a chance of being in our Top 3 or winning our GDT spot.
It's an easel card, made with my favourite Maja Design papers from the Vintage Frost collection.
I've added gesso and stitched the edges. The flowers have a touch of Stickles and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust. The ribbon and lace have diamant√© embellishments and I've added a shabby bark star.
I'm rushing around manically trying to buy more presents for Christmas, as I suppose most of us are at the moment!
So, I will keep this post short and sweet.
Sending Hugs and Smiles

Magnolia Tilda With Sparkle Poinsettia's

Hi Folks
I hope you are well and ready for Christmas.
This is one of my last Christmas cards for 2015 and I must admit to looking forward to making birthday cards again! This year I have made cards for sale in local shops as well as for friends and family. They have sold really well and it has been a wonderfully hectic few weeks, but I am ready for a break now.
This is a card I made using little "Tilda with Sparkle Poinsettias".
I coloured her with distress inks, adding glamour dust and stitching along a border of Maja paper. The dies are Joy Craft and Magnolia and have also been given the glamour dust treatment.
I LOVE that stuff!
I scrunched up some seam binding and added bows, lace and blue silky crush ribbon. The tag on the bottom layer opens and has a wooden, painted and glittered sentiment There is also a pretty diamante snowflake and a couple of wooden shabby stars.
I hope you like her.
Happy Christmas Shopping
