Thursday 28 November 2013


Good morning to you all!  Thursday already where is this week going?  Manchester was great yesterday all the cabins in the market were lovely didn't have any mulled wine but went to the champagne bar instead!

Over at Digital Delights Blog it is time for Delightful Thursday with some fabulous creations from the DT.  I have made a 'magic' card (hence the name of my blog post) following a tutorial on Marianne's blog Mariannes papiverden which can be found here.

I have used the delightful Christmas Flower Daffy which is available here to purchase.  The papers are Papermania Silent Night and I have coloured her with Copics and added Liquid Pearls around the image.  The border punch is by EK Success.  I have cut and matted her using Spellbinders Grand Oval and Grand Oval Scallop Nesties.  The felt roses are made using Marianne dies and I have put them on some holly leaves using CC Cutter die poetic license as I know roses don't have holly leaves!  Here is the inside:

I have used Digital Delights Christmas Hugs Sentiments which are available here to purchase. The sentiment has been cut using Spellbinders Labels 18.  Here is a side view:

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at the Delightful Challenges blog and the theme this week is Favourite Things (use your favourite embellishment or technique). The prize is a £10 voucher for Crafty Ribbons!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
