Holly Tilda at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!

Happy, Happy Friday to each of you!!! Gosh, I hope your week was as wonderful as mine! I had told you earlier that my oncologist was so concerned about nodules which continued to be observant in my lungs...and I was prepared for the worst yesterday!!!! BUT....when he came into my room, I queried about the verdict and shared that I was prepared for whatever he had to tell me...his response was he needed a great BIG hug first!!!!! He then told me that he had NO explanation and could not even begin to describe to me what had happened BUT ALL of the nodules have completely disappeared and that was after they had done 3 separate CT and MRI scans...those nodules have disappeared!!!!! Gosh, I was AMAZED and so happy!!!!! I can't even tell you how happy I have been!!!! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!!!! Something worked!!!! BIG SMILE!!!!!

And this week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we have a new member of the Design Team...and that new member is Suzan Laverty, so I hope you will go over and congratulate her on her very first DT submission at the challenge blog!!!! Congratulations, Suzan, you sweetie, you!!!! Big congratulatory hugs!!!!!

At the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge this week, we are hosted by the amazingly talented Mina who has selected RIBBONS, RIBBONS, RIBBONS for us this week! So grab your ribbons and come on over and show us your creations with ribbon!! Just make sure that your project has a Magnolia or hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamp on it and only link new projects please. Also please post your entry on your blog with a DIRECT LINK back to the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge blog. Make sure you have linked your project and not just your blog using the Blue Froggy before 8 pm UK Time on Thursday, November 24. Good luck, everyone!!!

For my card, I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the BG Nordic Holiday Collection and all background panels are machine stitched. The darling little Holly Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics, and cut out with double Nesties. She was placed on a red heart doily by Wilton. The vertical is a sparkling ribbon tied into a double flat bow and topped with a couple of WOC Christmas Berries. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Poinsettias and Holly Leaves.

The inside is just more of the same with Poinsettias and ribbon.


To celebrate my good news (wooooohooooo) and to welcome the magnificent Suzan to the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge Design Team, I would like to offer the above SWEET STUFF to my faithful FOLLOWERS! I would love for you to go over and visit with Suzan and tell her what you think of her submission...but just leave your link with Mr Froggy and you will be in for the SWEET STUFF!!!
1 Set of Fiskars So Much Thanks - 19 stamps
1 Set of Fiskars Vintage Farmhouse - 11 stamps
1 Magnolia Something for You Tilda

Please leave your link before Saturday, November 19, at midnight EST in order to be eligible. Good luck!!!

Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you will return often! Over the next several days I will be sharing with you some of the newest images from the latest release over at Whimsy Stamps and each day I will have some sweet SWEET STUFF for you!!!!! Oh Boy!!! That makes me sooooo happy!!! So be sure to check back often and see what's in store for you!!! Have a great day and hope to see you again real soon!!! HUGS!!!

Oh Jacque~ What a time for rejoicing! You couldn't know, but my tonsils disappeared the week before they were to be taken out! I left you a comment on the side as to who I give the credit of THIS miracle to! Guess Who? :)

I love this card! She is just beautiful...I love the image! And, the tiny holly leaves that you colored are so pretty. I really love your layout with the red doily and the paper is delicious. I tell you I must get some of those poinsettias...they are amazing! They add so much to an already beautiful card! I need to remember to try to tie a bow like the one you have on the cover! I love that style!

And, thank you again for the chance at that Super Sweet Stuff! So many stamps! It is fabulous and so exciting! I just love this Tilda...I love any of the Tilda's with flowers...especially the tulip ones...but this is so special! My youngest grandson is crazy for farm animals! Thank you for the chance to win!

He IS Able!
