Pssst.... There's a new kid on the blog!

Ooooh, you can never have enough Magnolia challenge blogs, and there's a new one just started yesterday!  Marvellous Magnolias are the latest addition to blogland and they have a fab DT with the most wonderful inspiring samples!  Their first theme is Anything Goes (always a good one to start with!) so I am going to join in the spirit of things with this card that I made today:

Right at the beginning of the week I started out with the best of intentions and began sorting out my Craft Room (guess what, it never got finished!!!)  Sometimes it's nice to just go for a rummage because I found a huge box full of these tapestry stamps that I've had for years but tend not to use.  So I brought them all down and have been stamping away like mad with them and this is what I created with this Christmas set.  I stamped out the first wreath and cut it out, then I stamped a second larger wreath directly onto the card and mounted the smaller wreath over the top using foam pads.  I added the darker berries on at the end using a copic pen.  Cute Tilda is coloured with pencils, though I didn't spend half as much time on this one as my previous offering!
Well, all that remains is for me to wish the girls at Marvellous Magnolias the very best of luck with their new blog and I look forward to their future challenges!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  :o) xx
