Vintage Tilda at Just Magnolia AND PINK SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope you have had a magnificent week and are starting into an even more splendid weekend. I have had some sissy health issues but those went out the window with some very exciting and fun news I had later in the week which I will share with you REAL soon!! Let's all remember that this is now OCTOBER and be reminded that it's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month...you can bet that I will never forget that October is much more than Halloween and Columbus Day (in the US)!!! Those aggravating mammograms take but a few minutes but believe me, they can also mean the world to you and your loved ones!!!!
This week at Just Magnolia our challenge is 2 x 2. So we want to see things in pairs – 2 papers, 2 ribbons, 2 charms, 2 embellishments etc. 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 fabulous prize. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday 14th October. So I hope you will come over and join with us this week where the very nice prize is from The Cutting Cafe.
On my easel card I used 2 designer papers, 2 mats under everything, 2 stamped images, 2 types of ribbon, 2 charms, 2 gold sprays, 2 medium poinsettias, 2 small poinsettias, 2 red berries, 2 white glass snowballs, BUT...shhhhhhh...don't tell but I used 3 holly berries!!! hahahhaha So how about showing us at Just Magnolia what you can do in TWOs!!!!
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all double matting is PTI, and the DP is BG Jovial. All panels were machine stitched. I stamped the little darling Vintage Tilda or Tilda with Christmas Ornament on Cryogen White adding a touch of Stickles to her lace and Glossy Accents and Spica Gold to the ornament. She is from the New A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 at Magnolia-licious...isn't she the cutest little thing, just getting ready to decorate the tree?!?! She was cut out with Nesties leaving her little legs to dangle on the outside. For the horizontal I used 1.5" Sage Pleated Satin and Red Diamond Satin from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. I have a bell and a snowflake charm dangling from the Bow Easy red bow. In the upper left I used the end of a prima branch which has 2 tiny poinsettias. For the right bottom corner I used 2 medium Prima poinsettias which I outlines with Gold Stickles, then 2 gold Magnolia sprays which the lovely Tanja got for me at Stempel-Mekka 2010.....thanks so much, Sweetie!!...2 red berries, and 2 white glass snowballs. For the base I used the same 2 ribbons on the horizontal adding a second image, the Merry Christmas Post circle, adding Green Stickles and 3 (shhhhhhhhhhh) red rhinestone holly berries.
And now to help me celebrate the end of my PINK JOURNEY and to remind you of the importance of awareness, I would like to offer the first of my several PINK SWEET STUFFS this month. But first I need to ask you to do a BIG favor for me!! One of my past DT sisters from Belles 'n Whistles has just found out that she now has breast cancer...Elise Dinolfo, a lovely and vibrant 38 year old lady with a 4 year old little boy!! Please drop by her blog and leave a little bit of love along with alot of heap big hugs...I would love for you to let her know that I asked you to drop by!!!!! She will need all the love and support which each of you gave to me as I was going down that bumpy road!!!! Elise had not yet reached the magic age of 40 so had never had her first mammogram yet...she found those scary lumps herself. So ladies, do you now see why I am on the soapbox begging ALL of you to have the necessary testing and do those regular self-examinations...Breast Cancer does not show favorites at any age!!!!! Thank you sincerely!!!!
