Anything Magnolia @ Diva's

Good morning guys, I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine we've had lately. It was still sunny here yesterday but an awful lot cooler than  last weekend when it was absolutely beautiful! 
I'm here today with a new challenge at


and this week is right up my street!!

Anything Magnolia

Those of you that know me, know I love Tilda and the gang so I'm really happy about this challenge so much so that you would have thought I'd spent ages on my favourite girl lol, well wrong!!! I haven't had a chance to make anything this week but just like a Blue Peter presenter - here's one I made earlier!! Before Christmas actually, and I used it for Christmas, I did put the recipients name on it, die cut letters just along the ribbon. She loved it!
I already had the bag, I think it came from Sainsbury's lol.
It actually shimmered and sparkled lovely with all the mirri card and glitter. I think most if not all the papers are from Prima but I might be wrong. It was that long ago I made it I can't remember!!

We have a fabulous sponsor this week

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some stunning inspiration from the team. I'm pleased to report they did get around to making some fabulous stuff for you. 
I did mean to take some pictures of the building site that used to be my front room but I forgot till I just wrote this, I will take some to post next time just encase you're interested.

That's it from me today, I"m going to lunch with a friend so that should be nice!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges..
Time For Magnolia - Christmas Bingo (Tilda Flowers Pearls)

A super gift bag Laurie, very pretty. Love all the gold and your beautiful decoration. You certainly do Tilda proud and I think she should visit you before a night out for the Diva treatment as she ends up being plain Jane with me! Thanks again for the images - I will try and do jazzy! Jx

HI there Young Lady, gorgeous card, love your choice of colours and totally stunning embellishments.
I sort of wish I could join you at the NEC but it is a long way on my own and not a good route and to be honest I have totally broken my NY resolution not to buy anything this year, I have spent more than I normally do already, I won't be going to Harrogate either but if our little Friend was up for the NEC I would come just to meet up with you and bring her, but she is more into the price of bacon at the moment.
Hope you have a great time but don't forget that you have more stuff than you need already, lol.

Lisa Minckler said...

You know that song, "All I want for Christmas?" Well, forget the front teeth, I want this bag!!!!
This is outstanding Laurie . Doesn't bother me if you don't remember where half the stuff comes from. What is important is that it all made its way to the bag. It's sensational and a gift in itself. Beautiful work :)
