Tilda in Christmas Coat at Just Magnolia and WINNER!!



A very happy Saturday to everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend! Gosh, it has been getting chilly here so that really puts me in the mood to think about the holidays--they will be here before we can blink an eye!

This week at Just Magnolia our challenge sketch is provided by the wonderfully talented Dawny P. You can flip and/or rotate the sketch, as long as we can still see all of the elements of the sketch. Don’t forget that you can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday 4th November 8pm. This week our sponsor, Dies to Die For is providing a very nice prize. So I hope you will share your Maggie interpretation of Dawny's sketch with us this week!

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from BoBunny. All major panels are double matted and machine stitched. I used the very darling Tilda in Christmas Coat from the A Merry Little Christmas Collection over at Magnolia-licious and she will be in-house very soon. This collection is just the cutest holiday collection YET!!! She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics before I added Liquid Applique to her coat trim and Twinklets to the ground. The sentiment ticket is from Cuddly Buddly. For the horizontals I used Red Organza and Light Blue Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The snowflakes from Michaels are all centered with red rhinestones.

For the inside I used more of the same adding ribbons, bows, more snowflakes and a snowflake charm.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to get your Maggies ready and join us this week at Just Magnolia. We are looking forward to seeing you there!!

WINNER - First let me express my appreciation to each of you for coming by to see me during the very special PINK week at Just Magnolia. I can only hope that we were all able to remind all of our friends and loved ones the urgency and importance of breast cancer awareness! Thank you sincerely for your help!!

Your cards are just wonderful and this beauty is no exception. I can't wait to get this Maggie she is adorable! How do you mail your cards with the ribbons and other embellishments? Are they too thick for a regular envelope? Thanks for sharing...patty

Rene said...

How pretty! I preordered that sweet Tilda...now that I've seen what you've done with her, I REALLY can't wait for her to get here!!

Danielle Champagne said...

Hello Jacque, I second Rene: how pretty! I just love how you added snow at Tilda's feet, and white fur on her coat, gives so much texture (I will try to remember for future use). Your bows are awesome, and the snow flakes gorgeous. Love it all. Thanks for sharing and insipiring.
Hugs
Danielle.
