Are you getting ready for the holiday? Have you begun preparations? It's going to be just the two of us this holiday, so, I splurged and have a personal chef preparing dinner for us! Yes, it is a "bucket list" item! LOL We were able to select what we wanted, and, of course, there is a whole turkey! I have to have leftovers! Usually, our DS flies in to be with us, but this year, he has other plans. So, DH and I decided that we shouldn't cook or have to clean up. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Usually, I start cooking the Monday prior to Thanksgiving. I am soooooo not missing it!
Today, begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! The new challenge is:
Many of us already do that, so that challenge is easy peasy!
Before I go any further, I want to announce who the lucky gal is who won a special something from me on my last Challenge post. **Drumroll, please....
Cindy, if you would please e-mail me at the address listed on this blog, I will get something wonderful out to you!
I also said that I would select a lucky gal from the comments posted on our Holiday Blog Hop. That lucky gal is:
Tamara, if you will please e-mail me at the address listed on my sidebar, I will get something special out to you!
Thank you, all, for your wonderful, supportive comments! They mean so much to me!
Now, let's get back to the Magnolia-licious challenge! Here is my card: I had so much fun with this one. I just kept going and going with it! I hope you like it:
For my card, I used:
•Edwin with Derby Hat. I thought he was just adorable (with and without his cookie duster)!
•Afternoon Tea Rose Kit. I did modify the mustache so that it would match the way I liked it.
•Mustache Doo-hickey Die
The rest of the goodies are from my stash. The gorgeous vintage papers are from paper sacks that a dear, dear friend sent to me for using on vintage cards! Thank you, Sweetie! I used a large black Prima flower and an assortment of brown flowers. The pocket watch in the upper right was made using black cardstock that looks like patent leather. I, then, added a vintage chipboard button. This was just fun!
Also, for those of you that saw my disaster of a card that I posted November 12, I did redo the front. I painstakingly removed each and every piece from the front. Then, I started all over. Now, I didn't change much, but I did make some minor changes that made me feel a little better about it. This card just looks so much nicer in real life. Here it is:
Now, I'm a happy girl! LOL
