Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge

Good morning everyone and it is time for our special monthly challenge on Just Magnolia . It's a special time of the year and we all have special people in our lives so what you need to do to qualify for the amazing prize is make a card for Someone Special. That's it - nice and easy at this busy time of the year. The winner will be chosen by Random Generator next week so to be in the running all you need to do is ensure you have at least one Magnolia image on your card and link your card (not your blog) in Mr Linky and have your card posted by 10 pm UK time next Thursday 10th December.

More lovely new stash that I bought at the NEC - I have to admit I really do adore this years christmas collection - every stamp and each paper is just fabulous. I set myself a mini challenge and only used my 'E' copics - really pleased with the results - a nice change from my usual bright shades. I can't tell you who my card is for because she might read it here but she is an amazing lady and I am so happy to be sending her this card from me :o)

The old stickles is still in use (told you Kim that I would keep it going, lol) and I don't know if you can see the papers clearly but they show the music and words for Silent Night - my favourite christmas song. I am thinking that I may chalk around the edges of the image now just to take away the whiteness of the card - we'll see how I feel about it later.

Challenge list my card fits....
Papertake Weekly - Sketch #29

This is the last card you will see from me until next Friday. I am having a couple of weeks off Penny Black and Anyone for Anya. I have an assignment due in a few weeks at university and I need to concentrate on my writing instead of crafting :o(
It is very difficult to let the teams down but I really do have to put my studies first. You will still see cards from me for my 'official' DTs but that will be all. Can I just say a great big thankyou to all of you who visit my blog and leave me such wonderful comments. This really does mean so very much to me and I really do appreciate each and every one of you so very much indeed.
Have a fabulous week xxxxxxx
