Tilda Brings Packages to Just Magnolia


Happy Saturday everyone!!! Gosh, I hope that everyone in the US survived Black Friday...and everyone outside the US had a marvelous day and week too!!! For those of you who have never heard of Black Friday, it is the first official day of Christmas shopping in the US with sales beginning as early as midnight with people lined up for miles to buy things on sale. I personally am not a Black Friday shopper--internet shopping is my speed!!!!

This week at Just Magnolia our challenge is provided by the very talented Donalda. You can flip and rotate the sketch any way you wish, as long as we can still see the elements of the sketch. 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 very nice prize this week is provided by Crafts U Love. So come on over and join in with us this week!!! We would love to see your creations!!

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, PTI Vintage Cream and Spring Rain for all matting, and the cute and sweet DP is Mary by Melissa Frances. All background panels are machine stitched. I used that darling little Tilda with Wedding Gifts from the Wedding Collection over at Magnolia-licious which can be used for any festive occasion, not just for weddings...she is carrying Christmas gifts today...wink!! It looks as though she may not be available right now, but if you would like to have her, contact Diana at Magnolia-licious and I'm sure she will make sure to get her for you. She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics before cutting her out with rectangular Nesties. The Shopping List is from MF and I gathered and added MF crepe paper to one side. The sentiment is from the Holiday Ticket Sentiments cut out with the Ticket Die, both from Whimsy Stamps. The floral treatment is a Small Flat Gardenia and Cherry Blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts. To complete the front I added a small flat bow and pearls to soften the corners.

The inside of the card is very simple because I just love this paper and wanted as much of it to show as possible, with the sweet sentiments, cute characters, and lovely script. I only added a double Nestie for a jotting spot, and a knotted ribbon holding a sleigh charm.

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you will visit me often! It is always such a joy to see that you have been by! In case you have missed it, I have some SWEET STUFF on the posting below AND tomorrow is another giveaway at SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious!!! So I hope to see you then! Until the next time, I send big Maggie hugs!!!!
