Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #16

Good Afternoon everyone!!  WOW its Thursday again and its time for a new challenge over at Lil Lolita Boutique!!  So this week we have a great challenge for you its:

STITCHING - Real or Faux

and here is my card, I have made a Christmas card, because well, I thought I should make a start on them and then by doing one every now and then I wont be sick to death of them if I try and make them all at once!! LOL... so on my chrissy card I have used Machine stitching, but you can't really see it well, my cotton is a bit too thin I think.  Plus the sewing machine decided to not work properly, so I finished it off with a bit of faux around the outside of Lylah.

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #63

G'Day everyone, its Sunday and its time for a new Challenge over at Magnolia Down Under -WOOHOO.... and this week we have a Sketch - how fabby and its been designed especially for you by Kathrin - isn't she clever??  you need to scroll down a bit to see the sketch - its awesome!!

This week I have made a card for a dear family friend who is going overseas for the first time, very soon - actually she is going to PARIS - what a fantastic place for a first time overseas traveller!!  Anyway I had started making this card with the Eiffel Tower and the New Shopping Tilda when my mum told me it would be so perfect for Patsy.  So this is for her!!

So here is my card, hope you like it as much as me!!!

As I said before I have used the new Shopping Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection - isn't she so cute?? and of course the Eiffel Tower from the Travel Collection back in 2008 I think?  Anyway my wonderful friend Kylie aka Blondie stamped off the tower for me and I wanna thank her for that, I love it... and soon hopefully I will have it in my stamp collection!!  I've also used the Tilda Lace Doo Hickey and Magnolia Papers, one is from the Bon Voyage collection, but you can't really see it, but it does have Paris written on it, so I thought it was perfect for this card!!!

Here is the Sketch, that Kathrin has designed.  I have changed it a bit, because I couldn't get all the layers in - sorry about that Kathrin, but your the Layer Queen and I'm not!! hehehehhhe, Thanks for dropping by!!
