Midweek Magnolia #28 Christmas in September

A very good morning everyone,  I hope your week is going well so far.  Wednesday and that means it's time for a new challenge over at 

This week we have a very festive theme - we want to encourage you to start on your Christmas makes whether it be a card/gift/decoration anything you like so long as it's Christmas orientated.  Do remember thought you must use a Magnolia product on your creation, either stamp, paper, doohickey dies etc.

I've chosen to use a non Christmas image this time and it's the lovely Tilda Catching Stars from the Princes & Princesses collection.  I think she is perfect for the festive season. She has been coloured with a mixture of Copics and Derwent soft pencils. 

I will jot down a list of my ingredients at the end of my post.  

Please pop over and take a peek at the wonderful creations my fellow teamies from Team A have made for you this week, they are delicious.

Thank you for coming over to visit me, I hope you enjoyed your stay and do please come back again soon.   Hugs xox
