Christmas Joy



Just Magnolia Challenge

Firstly we have some news, some sad and some good! Kim, Martine and Rach have sadly had to step down from the DT due to other commitments. Thanks so much for all your fabulous work and support ladies – you will be hugely missed. Which brings me to a little announcement. Jacque, Sheila and Jane have joined our team!! Welcome aboard ladies, we’re thrilled that you have agreed to join us.

This week we have a sketch by Martine for you to follow and a great prize from this weeks sponsor The Cutting Cafe



What a morning its been and its not even 10am, we had a power cur last night and for some reason it has damaged Mums TV and our Sky connection, I cannot get an engineer until next Wednesday, TV is my biggest help as it keeps Mum amused and allows me to get on with things and without it I Can see myself spending all my time downstairs and not getting up here very much. ROLL ON Wednesday.

Enough moaning today I have used Tilda is off to a Christmas Party at Edwins would love to know what she has bought him!!! She has been coloured with Distress Inks and the papers are Magnolias Christmas Release. I have used Martha Stewart Snowflake Birder Punch and a little label stamp that I have no Idea where it comes from but glad I found it as I can see me using it again. Flowers are usual are from Tabbycrafts and Wild Orchid Crafts.



Will be back later with my Wags'n Whiskers DT card, and Sunday I should have some Candy to celebrate Advent for you.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Wonderful Tilda, gorgeous colours.
Do know someone with an indoor aerial, four channels might be better than none.

Lynne said...

Oh, Jacqui I love your litle Tilda. I hope she has a lovely time at her party! She looks beautiful. I haven't done much this week - had tonsillitis but these cards are simply gorgeous. It's made me feel better just looking at your blog. I'm going to try to get your little drummer person if he's still available. It looks like it would do for a boy or a girl. Hope you manage to get upstairs.

hIYA Jacqui hun

Oh I do hope that the tv will perform a miracle and fix itself for you, when it is as important as it is in your case with your mum, I fully sympathise when the weather turns and the downpour comes and interferes with the sky, My Niall turns into a monster, not saying your mum does that tho,you know what I mean lol, ramble!


Your card is stunning as always, beautiful colour combo.
