Magnolia Nativity Collection 2012

Happy Thursday Everyone :D
What a lovely cold crispy morning it is here in the UK today. Im just writing up this post and then Im going out with my dog. I'm fed up of having a soggy doggy these last couple of weeks.
Ive finally got the time to play with the new Magnolia Nativity stamps. WHOOooo I adore these :D

For my card I used Tilda as Wiseman, Paradise Palm and Jacob the Camel which I have masked together. All painted with DI's.
I do make it difficult for myself. It was quite a challenging one to paint.
Oh yes Ive also used Magnolia Christmas Text too.

 As usual Ive used lots of Dies. Loving the new DooHickeys
Ive used Pointsettia, Sprawling Ferns and Tea labels-Small Tags and Tilda'sTicket
Other dies are Sizzix Pinecone and Go Kreate for the shape Frilly #7
Berries are all from Magnolia
I hope you like my card and thankyou so much for taking your time to visit my blog.
Your comments are truly appreciated and mean so much xx

Ive actually had a great week. Both me and my hubby have had a week off and weve been DIY-ing, Christmas Shopping, Cinema(twice) and lots of dog walking, its really been a lovely break from everything. So much so my Mojo has disappeared. This card has been on my desk all week waiting to be finished and today Ive managed it!! That is after a trip to a local craft store to see if there was anything that got my inspiration kicking in again!!

For my card I have Watercoloured Magnolia-Tilda Captures Stars using Distress Inks

This is what I found in my craftshop. Some MINI Bobbins. Arent they cool. My trip worked I think and I didnt spend much either.!!!hee hee
Dies used are Go Kreate for the shape of the card
Doo-Hickeys Angel Wings and Star Tag
Papers Maja Design Its Christmas Time
Thankyou so much for your visit :D
Have a great week

 My hubby and I have a weeks Holiday this week and we have been DIYing in my craft room and other parts of the house. So Ive had no crafting time OR been on my laptop AT ALL.
My room is now very tidy and more roomy...but I cant find anything!!!ARghhhhhh
Ok back to my post.
Its all about Books over at MDUC this week..
Ive made one of the Corner page bookmarks Ive been wanting to make for a long time. So easy to do to.
 When choosing which stamp to use I remembered a book I had of Bedtime Lullabies when I was younger. Holy Tilda with Violin was just perfect.
I also used NEW Doo-Hickey 'Cute wings' which I received as a lovely surprise this week from my dear sweet friend Camilla from Sweden and I just LOVE them..Thankyou so much xxx :D 

Papers are Maja.
Other Die used was Doo-Hickey-Pointsettia
