A Couple of Christmas Makes

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.... not long to the end of the year... eeck cant believe it's 2014 almost, already!!

Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of my makes that hadn't made it to my blog.... I did a couple of classes at my local scrap shop, and this is what I made - well the Banner that is hanging... I made the other stuff last year and the year before....

Looks pretty good.... for my next project which I am totally in love with....

I am so happy with my White Christmas Tags.... I think this will be a treasured Christmas Decoration for many years to come:-)

Anything Goes at Magnolia Down Under

Hi There

Well I have managed to escape into my craft room this weekend... it's taken all weekend but I have managed to make a card for Magnolia Down Under's Anything Goes theme....

It's our last challenge of the year, we decided our girls needed some time off to spend with their families and then to rest up from crafting (for us) until next year!  Magnolia Down Under is turning 5 in 2014... WOW can you believe it??

Anyway, about my card... I have used a sweet Tilda hanging her Christmas Stocking, and the cute little piggy from the latest Christmas collection.  I have used Kaiser Craft paper, Gold and White Glitter card and Frantaged the heck out of it!! I so love that stuff!!

Here is a closer look at that Frantage, and my not so great colouring (it has been awhile) anyway I decided to put a little frame around the piggy... its one of those air dry clay thingies from Martha Steward... I have it sitting right up! I used a new to me glue - well basically it's silicon... but you put a blob on and not push down the item your gluing, and then it will sit up nice an high without collapsing! very cool

I think this will be my last blog post this year, but you never know!! Anyway I wanted to wish you all a very Merry and safe Christmas, and I hope all your dreams come true!
