Magnolia-Licious/Wee Stamps DT - Ways to Weather it.

Good morning my dears,  I'm hear to share my midway card for our challenge over at


You still have another week to join us in our "Ways to Weather it" theme.  All you need  to do is choose the weather, it could be Winter (like me) Sun, clouds, rain, frost etc etc 

For my Winter card I've used this sweet Special Stamp from Sweden - Winter Skates Tilda - available over at Magnolia Stamps 
She has been coloured with Copics/Promarkers and Derwent soft pencils.  My papers are from 2012 Magnolia collection and I've used the lovely lace doohickey border die.   

The cute bubbly snow is actually JumPing bubbles air dry clay. It's such fun to work with as it can be used in moulds or made into shapes of your choice if you're really clever.

Any way I will pop a recipe list at the bottom of my post for you with links where possible.

As always our wonderful sponsor is the very generous Diane - owner of Magnolia-licious Stamps and she will be sending one very lucky winner a  surprise package.

Don't forget that you also have a chance to win more prizes, all you need to do is leave a comment on our current challenge over at Magnolia-licious/Wee Wedneday/Mini Monday or any of the DT blogs in order to win a surprise package from Diana.
