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.
