Magnolia Down Under Challenge card and candy winner!!

Good afternoon!!!

I have my Magnolia Down Under card to show you.

The challenge this week is ..

The girl's over on the challenge blog have done some very beautiful cards!!

I hope you will find the time to join us this week!!

I have used one of my favorite little Edwin's. He can be found at Magnolia-Licious

I have colored him with my copic markers.

Papers: Glitz, The Paper Studio,DCWV

Embellies: bakers thread, candy mini ornaments, chipboard heart, calendar

I have taken my needle and black thread and hand stitched little random stitches like an old time country quilt around the blocks.

I have used my Ranger inks on all the edges and I have used my sewing machine to stitch the layers down.

BOy did my copic marker beed on that calendar!!!


Challenge I would like to enter: The Secret Crafter: Christmas

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

I have been so busy getting posts and maganize work done for the first 3 month of 2011 that I have not blog hopped much. I miss my hopping time so much!!

Now it is time to get my Chritmas shopping done and decorations put up!! BUT I am a crazy because I ordered new carpet for the whole house and it will be put at the end of up coming week!!!!

What was I thinking??????

No decorations until they are done with the carpet. EVERY piece of furniture has to come out of the house and then put back. Now I am not talking about a small job here!!

NUTS!!!! That is what I am!!!

Like I said what was I thinking??

So I will be over busy from now until Christmas trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
