Hangler Christmas

I'm so happy to get my hands on some cute little Hangler images, my friend Lisa was nice enough to stamp for me. I made this just before the retreat but got the flu so was not feeling like posting until now. Its always fun to play with something new.

I wanted this card to have a folk artsy feel and think the bit of distressing and the jute help pull this off.I followed an older Mojo Monday sketch. I've really been having some creative fun with them lately even though I've not been able to get them done in time to post them for their challenges.

Thanks for stopping by-Hugs Tania

Just Magnolia week#81

This week the challenge at Just Magnolia Week#81 was to use the lovely sketch Donalda made. It was a bit of a challenge for me to use as I am a very linear person and don't usually use a lot of angles on my cards, but that's why they call it a challenge right.

I used the new Midnight Frost paper collection from Bo Bunny and this cute little Magnolia Snowman. He's very glittery although it doesn't really show in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving your comments-Hugs Tania

Friday Sketchers#128

Thought I'd have a go at the Friday Sketchers Challenge #128 this week as I loved the sketch. This is the first time that I've tried the paper piecing technique. My friend Debbie uses this technique with great results, but man I found it really time consuming (do like the results though.

I'm still in arush to get enough cards for Christmas but am about half way done Yeh! So there should be quite a few posts this next little while. Hope everyone has a great week-Hugs Tania

Penny Black Saturday Challenge week #127

This week the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for Week #127 was the theme All my Favorite things. I chose my winter time favorite Snowflakes, just can never have to many different kinds. Here's what I came up with I used an new Penny Black Stamp my friend Debbie let me stamp at crop night a couple of weeks ago. This cutie is just so cheery looking and fun to work with.

I spent a long time looking around the web for the perfect poem to put on the inside but came up with nothing that was quite what I wanted to say. I ended up writing this myself a little scary but I think it turned out quite fitting.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend-Hugs Tania
