Midweek Magnolias DT - #123 Christmas is coming!!!!



Good morning my dears,  It's time for a new challenge over at 

M i d w e e k   M a g n o l i a s


Our theme for the next fortnight is

"C h r i s t m a s"



I've used an older Tilda which was a special issue so not sure if she is still available and coloured her with my Copic markers, shading with Derwent soft pencils.  I've used my Doohickey Club Kit Poinsettia die and added a blue pearl. 

My papers are by Maja Designs Vintage Autumn basics 6x6 pad. Xmas die - Marianne Designs. Circle Die - Spellbinders. 

A simple card but the papers and movement aspect make up for the lack of embellishments.

Scrap & Craft DT 100th Birthday Celebrations Card!!!!



Good morning my dears,  It's my day for posting over at 




I'm sharing this specially commissioned card for a sweet
lady who has just celebrated her 100th Birthday


The only brief I was given to work with was the 
ladies love of pinks/blues and pearls.

I knew from these colours the exact papers to use, 

"Lemoncraft  Never ending Summer"

I also wanted to frame the sentiment so I chose to make an 8x8
card in order to use the gorgeous large chipboard frame from 
Scrapiniec. I gave it a quick coat of winter white gesso 
to match the colour theme I was using.


You can go visit Emilia's Store by clicking on this link 
(Scrap & Craft) where you will find a wonderful array of crafty goodies from Lace, pearls, chipboard and the most stunning papers that you will not find anywhere else in the UK.
