DU2DS 25 and Just Magnolia Featured Stamper

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>

Hi everyone, Friday again and time for another DU2DS challenge. This time our DT friend Larissa has designed a great sketch for us to follow which we all enjoyed using and we hope you can join us. There are some digital images for a prize and some great inspiration from my DT friends.  I’ve used a soon to be available digi ‘Got Turkey’ which is coloured with copics and then cut out, I’ve also put some glaze on his eyes and nose and added some sparkle with a copic spica clear gel pen on the turkey. The paper is by K&Co and I’ve distressed all the edges with scissors. I added some doodling around the edge of the card blank, a ribbon, gem and a doodlebug sentiment to finish off.

I was delighted to be asked by Bev and Jacquie to be a featured stamper on the Just Magnolia Challenge and I’ve done a little picture ‘how to’ for distressing which is up on the challenge now. Thank you very much ladies for inviting me, I really enjoyed doing it. This is the card I made to go along with the how to and it was made to one of Rach’s lovely sketches from a few weeks back.

This gorgeous Tilda was coloured with copics and cut out. I used some dark pink card for the layers and BasicGrey Lemonade papers.

I’m hoping to have something to post tomorrow but if not hope you have a good weekend. If anyone is going to the Craft Barn Mini Fest on Saturday, I’ll be there demonstrating the new Little Clair stamps and I hope to catch up with you there. Also, if anyone is going to the NEC on Sunday, I’ll be demonstrating on the Magnolia Stamps stand for a couple of hours in the morning and it would be great to meet anyone who’s going to be there too. TFL.

Wow! What a jam packed post! Your doggy with his turkey made me smile. Reminded me of when AD and I used to buy his folks pet pooch a 'dog's Christmas dinner' every year (yes, I actually did do that!)and the Christmas stocking that never lasted for more than a few minutes!
Your second card is stunning. Love all the distressing on it. Congrats on being the featured stamper. It doesn't surprise me one bit :D
