My Lovely Friends,

Thursday, 1 January 2015


Hi everyone, hope you've all had a fab New Years eve and are beginning a brill New Year too,

I had a lovely message the other day from the lovely Valou, asking me if I'd like to be on the Magnolia Forever DT, of course I jumped at the chance, as you know I love my maggies lol,
So our first challenge of 2015 is

It's the Holiday! Happy New Year
and we are kindly being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons

I couldn't resist doing a party scene, where they are celebrating the New Year in,
Tilda with love potion and Edwin wants a hug are both coloured with my copics, then fussy cut out, a piece of acetate was fixed behind them for them to stand up too, Edwin's excited and jumping for joy, he he,
The clock is by Tando and i've coloured it with gesso, then when dry added a script stamp here and there, the streamers on the clock are the stems of some metal type flowers which have been twisted loosely round my pokey tool, I  quite like the effect,
The cog is a Dusty Attic chippie again painted with gesso, the clock hands were from a local shop,
The balloons have a print detail on them only it's not showing here and I added a little glamour dust for texture too, these I fixed onto some craft wire and stood them up with 3D glue,

The base card is a fancy fold so the clock would be at the back but in the right place, I just made a square folded  in half, then the top half I scored diagonally across from the top end to the crease, folded it down and it's done, the papers are one of  my favourites again by  Maja design, the clock face one is another fave by Magnolia,
The metal looking stars were in my stash from years ago,
Magnolia Mania - Happy New Year

Well I'm wishing you all a Very Happy New Year,
with lots of  Happy crafting too,

I'm full of a cold again at the minute, grr so hope this has made sense!!!!! lol
