We are sponsored by the wonderful Magnolia Sweden who will offer an awesome prize to the lucky Challenge winner and another prize from 7 Kids College Fund for the winner who visits all the DT blogs and leaves a comment, along with a variety of candies at the DT blogs too. How good is that!!! So pop on over to Midweek Magnolias and find the links to the rest of the DT and hop along down the line  for a chance to win some terrific prizes.  Don’t forget to leave a comment on each of the DT blogs while you are there.

I've created a Christmas Snow Globe to share with you all. The pattern for this can be purchased here from Sandra's Scrapshop if you would like to make one for yourself. 


I've used the sweet 'Jingle Bell Rudolph' image from Magnolia which I stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured my image with the following colours: E35, E53, E51, W5, W3, W1, W00, R37, R35, R32, YR24, YR23 & Y15. 

I have then fussy cut my image and created a scene using the Spruce Die from Magnolia Doohickey. Inside the globe I have added some glitter balls to shake around. My papers are from Kaisercrafts 6" Paper Pad called Christmas Collections. 

I've cut my "Merry Christmas' sentiment in gold glitter cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. To finish off I have added some Poinsettia die cuts, another Spruce die cut and a bow. 

Here's a close up of my image.

My eldest daughter's boss is about to have a baby any day now so she asked me to make a card in preparation. She knows she's having a little girl so here is what I made. 



I’ve used the very sweet ‘Baby Tilda' from Magnolia’s ‘Princes & Princesses’ Collection. 

My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have coloured my image with Copic Markers in the following colours: 

Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair – E44, E43, E42, E41
Clothes, Shoes, Bows & Butterflies – R02, R01, R00, C5, C3, C1, C00.

Here’s a close up of my image.
