Gingerbread Time

Good Morning and a very happy Sunday morning to you all. I'm afraid I've been AWOL again, this time I was wiped out with a migraine. It's the first I've had for about 10 years so at least they're not too frequent for me thank goodness.
I've not been able to craft for 5 days and I'm now so behind with my DT work! I was just getting ahead of myself nicely and I'd found the time to make another card just for fun, so at least I have something to post today.
You all know how much I love my Magnolia's! Since I've been blogging I've actually used some - they are not just for looking at now! This is Gingerbread Tilda, I think from a year or so ago. The die cut wreath is Memory Box again, the little wooden deer is from WOC along with the roses and the pearls, the gold baubles and leaf are from a Christmas decoration I dismantled and the sentiment is LOTV The lace is adhesive, I've had it for ages and never used it!

Right I'm off to catch up on all my blog visits and comments, so maybe I'll see you later!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

I love your Magnolia cads Laurie!
This one looks really beautiful in brown with all those fantastic embellishments! I have made the gingerbread dough (If this is wrong, it's google translators fault!) for baking with the kids tomorrow! Looking forward to that :)
That wooden dear are so beautiful and the same with the rest of it, perfect like you always do it!
Hope the migraine is gone and don't come back ever again, or at least stay away for ten more years!
Enjoy rest of your weekend!
Lots and lots of hugs,

HI Sweetie... just LOVE the brown colours you've used... makes it look so different but so lovely!
Awwww big hug for your migraine and am glad it's better.... I'm getting them frequently now and they're awful... but I get the eye problems first (flashing black & white lights), then the pain after... weird. I had one Saturday, and one yesterday...... YUCK!
