Hi all, I have a card to share with you and to enter a few challenges.  
While deciding what my future was in crafting I have been going through all my stash and of course I have been looking at all the Magnolia stamps I have collected over the years, Tilda is my most beloved stamp of all time, there is no way I could ever part with any of my Magnolia's and decided that I would start to get them out and ink them up.  
I thought that Christmas cards would be high on my list of priorities so sorted the selection of stamps that fell into that category and this is my first one, I have coloured her with Copics and added glitter to her hat, present and the ground, I mounted her onto both pink and gold metallic card, the papers are Bearly Mine, I used several die cuts, gold metallic branches, Poinsettia's, pink frosted berries, tree and the snowflake border, I then added some stars, lace, pearls and sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I am starting a new project over the next few weeks, I bought some MDF Wreath circles from Create & Craft and will try to make some Autumnal wreaths, I didn't want to make something that would last just for a few weeks like Christmas I wanted something that I could have on show the whole year round, once I have made one I will take some pictures and see what you think, it is a very new road for me so I just hope it works out, lol.
