Just Magnolias and Hanglars - Christmas Time!

It's Friday! And it is Team B week at Just Magnolia and Hanglars Challenge - my week! You may not have noticed but we have split the team and are now doing every other week - Lots of prizes and lots of inspiration still - but well... a little less stress for the team. And this time of year, that is a huge bonus!

Are you aware how close Christmas is? Seriously.. have you counted the days? I have... and it is scary! LOL Now why I was counting the days? Uh.. I'll tell you that in tomorrows post - how is that for a cliff hanger?

Now for my card this week - the theme is Christmas! And we were given some adorable sentiments from one of our sponsors this week... The Cutting Cafe really love them! Perfect for your holiday cards.

I played with one of my older Hanglars - love this "couple" :0)

 I colored with my Copics -

Then I went to work on my card - I used papers from My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas Collection - really yummy vintage papers!
Ok, shocker here... but I didn't sew anything! For some reason this card just went together and I never even thought about using the sewing machine... I think it was cuz I was excited about using that GORGEOUS piece of antique lace! It is one that I got from Etsy... Totally ADORE it! I inked the edges of all the papers with Distress Ink Old Paper, and the attached to a kraft card stock base.  It all went really fast. My embellishment - I found a metal Making Memories metal corner in my box from my scrapbooking days - Love how well it matches. Printed out my sentiment, added just a bit of color to it and all done!

Hope you like it - And make sure to visit the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge - two prizes this week... and LOTS of inspiration for your Christmas cards! Why not join us and that would be one of your holiday cards done! :0)

I'll see you tomorrow... yes... I'll let you know what is coming..... any ideas??? LOL

HUGS and

Great card, and thanks for freaking me out with how close Christmas really is. YES, I have done a littel shopping and have decided what to get everyone. But have not even got an idea what to do for cards! Better get cracking. hugs...
