Doing the Happy Dance
I have just had the New Magnolia Magazine delivered, wow it is full of so much inspiration and such beautiful cards, a lot of which are made by some of the very very talented girls I work with on a couple of DT's, so before anything else can I say congratulations and thanks for the Tutorials and awesome cards to Tab, Kim, Jay Jay, Camilla and lastly the fabulous Claudia. I will be following your tutorials and studying your cards over the next few days. If you have never visited their fabulous blogs just click on the names and you will be taken straight to wonderland.
I would also like to send great big hugs and congratulations to a very dear and mega, mega talented friend Chris Dark, who won the Card competition set by Magnolia for the first issue of the magazine.
Now for the reason I am doing the happy dance, as if the above wasn't enough to get me started, some weeks ago I entered the Magnolia Weekend Challenge, and my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw my card in the magazine, I had passed it once thinking that looks like a card I made, then went back and saw it was MY CARD!!!!
I had forgotten all about it, and have had to search through my photos and cards to find it, but here is the card that was featured. I have made a step card as I wanted to make a little Night before Christmas winter scene on the card.
I have used lots of Magnolia Images, here is Tilda with Braid and Silent Night Music Stamp, all the Tildas have been coloured with Distress Inks, I stamped the whole of the Silent Night stamp then tore it in half distressed the edges with scissors and distressed the finished results with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
Here are Tilda with Candle and Tilda as Lucia, the Winter Forest image has been stamped onto Green card and Glamour Dust added around the edges.
Here is a side view of the card, well I will go now and finish my happy dance. Hope you have all ordered your magazine I must say it was well worth the money, need to know now how to order the next edition.
Thanks for looking
