Magnolia is on my tree !!!!!


I had just started out crafting this time last year so here is my first Magnolia decoration for my tree ! It would be great to make one every year !! because it would make you remember every crafting year and would be good to see how your style/colouring  changes too ! I have picked Sweet Christmas Tilda which I have coloured with prismacolor pencils! and added some glamour dust to her wee socks !  I also thought I would use them to colour the Doohickey die for a change instead of distress inks  . I used this gorgeous textured bead gel , effect is so pretty will be playing with that more !! Love messing about with new crafty mediums !! I had to take pictures of her on the tree lol !

I added some gorgeous white lace behind Tilda and shaped a bow so I could fix her and the poinsettia. I fixed the bow to the bauble ! I printed a sentiment from pink petticoat to fit in the bauble with some pretty berries on the top. I used polar white flowersoft for the snow inside !

It's a good sentiment  to remind us when we carried away with it all lol ( especially teenagers lol ) .
So here is the whole decoration on my lovely tree !! The best part was decorating the tree with my daughter she still gets excited even at 16 !! and won't let me do it without her !

I would like to enter my decoration into this weeks TOMIC challenge no 28 - Christmas decoration 

I am pretty organised this year for first time must be my age lol. I am hoping to maybe get some crafty time Mon or Tues so I shall see you then !! Must get to bed will never get up for work in the morning !! takes about an extra hour to put on all the layers because it is freezing it is -1  here tonight !!

Lots of Crafty Festive Hugs

  4. Hi Sweetie
    Wow, your Christmas Tree is up and decorated and even with a lovely handmade decoration!! It's really gorgeous, you've done a great job.

    It was pretty warm for December here until this weekend, now it snows and it's around 0°, but the heat is on, that's something nice about a good organised country LOL... we normally don't have extra costs, mostly it's already paid in the monthly rent of a flat.
    Have a wonderful last Christmas week!
    Big hug, Alessandra
