I am back on deck and pretty much fully recovered, thank you for all your well wishes (it's definately the season for it). I have also just spent a couple of days interstate for work - I have so got out of the routine of leaving home at 4:30am - yuk!!!!
I'm excited to show my first entry to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. I love Christmas, and I was lucky that my wonderful upline Debbie, stamped a couple of Magnolia images for me some time ago (especially as my Magnolia collection is still very small), and I was just dying to colour him in. Well last week I received my Stampin Up markers and my Riding Hood Red ink pad - just perfect for a Christmas Challenge.
I really wasn't sure what to do with Santa, so I pulled out my trusty Cuttlebug, some DP and Scallop Oval Punch both from the new mini (out 1 August). The colours just don't seem to come out as well on my blog as they did on my computer : (
I used Dazzling Diamonds on his hat and coat and pants and Crystal Effects on his boots (as many others have said they don't show up very well, but you can just make it out in this photo).
