Lots of challenges in one post.

I haven't used a Magnolia stamp in ages so I thought I'd combined these two challenges to use this lovely stamp. The sketch is this weeks Just Magnolia challenge and A spoon full of sugar asks you to use Non traditional Christmas colours (No red or Green) I've used Basic grey Eskimo kisses papers with some glitter and mirror card and die cut some snowflakes. The sentiment is from a popcorn bear set but fits and makes the image more christmassy.

The next project is for Totally Gorguss challenge which is 'Not a card' so having gone a done a little Christmas shopping this morning I bagged some bargins to change into yummy pressie for friends and family. So out of this lot below I'm going to make something that looks like I've spent a fortune when I haven't! ( I hope, well that's the plan anyway?)

I bought some cheap as chips Diaries from Asda and have covered them with some pretty shimmery paper and added a Gorguss image and some beads, ribbon and a charm. Hope they all like their pressies come Christmas day?

Now last but not least one for Saturday challenge over at Secret crafter, this weeks it's Christmas trees, the tree image is a digi one from All that scraps coloured copics and the Santa is from Whiff of Joy. The papers are from Doodlebug with some added mirror cardstock and a bit of glitter just because!
