Here Goes lol :)x

Well firstly, I must just say a huge thank you for all the lovely messages and comments I got yesterday following my good news.

The Land of Blog is just full of the nicest peeps ever xxxxx

So for my very first Just Magnolia Challenge team card, I thought I'd use this sweet Tilda which I got at the NEC last week. I think she's absolutely adorable :)x

So our challenge (oohhh hark at me) this week is a fabulous sketch by the very talented and lovely Mina.

Here's the sketch.

And here's me card!!

The bad boys are back after their very brief rest - no room for slackers here lol - and of course, the Glamour Dust has been sprinkled with loving care!!!And of course, you can get yourself your very own bad boys and Magnolia stamps from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

The paper is from the new Pink Petticoat Fairy Lights collection - just gorgeous - and of course, I just had to use one of Martha's finest!!

The big snowflake was made using a mixture of the fab Dovecraft 3" Magna snowflake punch (which you can get from Dies To Die For - I covered it in bling) and a pale grey pearl Cricut snowflake from the Christmas Cheer cartridge.

The spacer bead and pretty pink velvet ribbon were also from DTDF, and the dangly is made up of a snowflake charm which I got from Simon Says Stamp, and some beads from my ever growing stash!!

The little snowflakes were punched and I added a bit of Dies To Die for bling.
Also I added a bit of faux snow aka Polar White Flower Soft

And that's it.

Please excuse the dodgy lighting here. I've been experimenting with a new light box. Well when I say light box, it's actually 3 sheets of white card and a daylight lamp!!

Still not quite getting it right am I :(
But I will eventually I guess!!! I am just pre-empting winter and dark nights and bad light etc etc, so this is my attempt at being pro-active!!!

Have a fab day peeps and see you soon, if not sooner, and if you get a sec, don't forget to check out the challenge and, as always, the absolutely stunning cardage from the rest of the teamster girlies.

Hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawn, This is a gorgeous card, but then all of your cards are! I just wanted to say that your blog is fantastic and has been a big inspiration to me. I don't usually get to your blog as I subscribe by email so I probably haven't left a comment before even though I admire your work. I have left an award for you on my blog (

Heidi said...

Dawn- this is beautiful and now I need to start using my beads on my cards? Oh boy, the fun I could have on my flight making things like this (but alas, they won't let me on with those darned little needles I am sure.
