COUNTRY CHRISTMAS ...Magnolia Style!!

This afternoon I have my
Magnolia Down Under card to share with you.

This week challenge # 97 is..
now get out the Christmas papers and have fun!!

I had a blast with this card..

But I tell you I had a very hard time finding all of my Christmas props in my drawer to do my photos.. LOL....

I have used a cute little Tilda from Magnolia-licious But I can't seem to find her in the store right now. UUhhggg!! She is one of the very first Maggies in my collection and I just love her with her little bare knees sticking out.

She has been colored with my copic markers.

Papers: graphic 45, Recollections and bazzill cardstocks.

embellies: Prima Roses, trims, ribbon, doily, brads, wood scroll pieces from my stach. Gingerbreads have been out of some papers that I had in my stash, candy's and cook minitures, bakers twine.

My card has been inked on the edges of all layers and sewn. I did use Glimmer Mist on the doily.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

I really do love to read all of your comments!! They mean the world to me!!

Right now I am having a very hard time going around to all of your blogs. Makes me sad but just alot of things going on here right now.

Take care ..

Gorgeous card Janiel. Tilda is so sweet and I love the cute gingerbread people.

Know what you mean about difficulty visiting people. Sometimes I can't get anything made for doing DT commenting and visiting my favourite blogs. On the other hand if I'm busy making cards I feel guilty about not visiting blogs. You can't win, can you?

Enjoy your weekend,

Kat xx
