2 More Challenges...


I am back again, with a card for 2 more challenges.  My oh my... my hands are absolutely frozen.  My electricity bill was so high last month, that we've decided to only put the heater on later this evening. For now I am wearing warm clothes, but I can't work with my fingerless gloves, so the fingers are a beautiful shade of blue and purple right now... lol

Ok, enough drivel.... here's a card I made with another cute Magnolia stamp.  I am entering this one into 2 challenges viz.

Dies To Die For - They have a wonderful sketch for you to work with, here it is...

Ribbon Girls - They have a bingo board for their challenge, here it is...  I have chosen the first row viz. Ribbon, Pearls and Image

Here is my little creation... hope you like it !

The floral paper is a purchase from Dies To Die For.  This pad is Bazzill Basics - Avalon.  I absolutely love this one.  If you haven't purchased from Tracy before, you will not be disappointed. I've always been happy with her service.

The gorgeous ribbon is a product from The Ribbon Girl.  This is their Ivory-Red Grosgrain ribbon.  Lovely and thick and cuts so beautifully!  I've purchased from The Ribbon Girl quite a few times already and am just as happy with their service.

Here's a peek of the inside...

I may just have time to find another challenge before the sun sets over Cape Town.

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop around.  I really appreciate it.  Where's that tea now ??

Stay warm, hugs Sharon x
