Part 2 ~ The Blog Hop

There are no sample cards on the Friday Sketchers Blog. It is because they have posted their cards on their individual blogs and they each have a little gift of their own to give away to one of us! So instead of just one winner this week, there will be 7 lucky winners! Just follow the hop and leave a comment on each DT member's blog for a chance to win their prize and dont forget to link your own card using the sketch here on the Friday Sketcher blog.

The hop starts here at the Friday Sketchers Blog and continues as follows:

My New Magnolia's

How happy was i when my new Magnolia Winter Stamp Club Kit fell through my letterbox? I wasn't even the remotest bit bothered that they didn't include any Christmas stamps ... as such! I've still managed to make some gorgeous Christmas cards with them though ... even though i say so myself ... may as well blow my own trumpet, (its seems that if you do that here in blogland it gets you long way) ... now i've found my medium too they just keep getting better and better ;)

So here is the first ....

I know i only used one of the stamps from this years kit, but the other is from last years Winter kit, so it just shows there versatility! I just love this new Tilda with her heels ... how grown up does she look all dolled up ready for her Christmas party!

  • DP's ~ Free download Winter Wonderland
  • Tulle ~ TabbyCrafts
  • Flowers ~ TabbyCrafts
  • Gems ~ Stash
  • Tools ~ Round Nesties, label shape ... made using Word (some less fortunate ones of us can't afford all the nesties) talk about being resourceful! Sewing Machine, Silver Embroidery Thread, Pencil Crayons from Morrisons, Gamasol Stuff but the cheaper variety, No.0 Blending Stumps.
