Midweek Magnolias DT #100th Challenge + Celebratory Blog Hop

Good Morning everyone and Welcome to 

Midweek Magnolias 

Celebratory 100th Challenge Blog Hop!!!

I am so pleased to be kicking off this very special Blog hop,  if you've come to me via the main blog post then you're on the right track!!  

We have amazing prizes to be won from our very generous sponsors who are helping us celebrate in style, you can find out all about the prizes over on the main blog post,  the Design Team are also giving one of their followers the chance to win some lovely candy, all you need to do is join is complete the Blog Hop, join in the challenge and leave a comment on the DT's posts.  Easy peasy!!

Our theme for the next fortnight is 

"Special Celebrations"

This could be either Christmas, Halloween, New Baby, Anniversary, Wedding, etc.  If you decide to make a Birthday card then it should be for a special Birthday. i.e. 18th, 21st, 40th etc.

I've chosen a Christmas Theme and used this sweet Tilda from the Autumn Club Kit, isn't she cute in her little sleep suit and night cap!!!  I've also used the snowflake and berry stamp around the image. I've coloured her with copics and derwent soft pencils for the shading.

My first time using Mirror card, oh boy it doesn't like to be photographed, I took about 30/40 pictures before catching just a few without the flash glare.  I love the effect and will use it again but not for DT projects!! lol. 

My dies are the new Spellbinders Victorian Shapeability Victorian collection the large die at the back is called Victorian Medallion Three and the snow flake has been fussy cut from the smaller centre medallion. The inside is decorated with the same paper but I used spellbinders Fleur de lis square die. 

I think I've kept you here long enough so it's time to continue you Blog Hop journey by hopping on over to our lovely 
Cathy Lee who has an amazing creation to show you!!!

Thank you so much for popping in I am looking forward to seeing all your wonderful special celebration projects over the coming two weeks.
