Fussy and Fancy and Just Magnolia *Long Post*


Hello everyone, happy Friday. I'm lazy today and have combined my challenge posts. Hope you all dont mind. I woke up this morning with a bad kink in my neck, lovely! UGH!! Before I get to the Challenges I want to spread the news about the Magnolia Advent Giveaway. The entire Magnolia Design Team will dedicate a day this month for the giveaway. So be sure to visit the Magnolia Design Team NEW Magnolia Design Team Blog every day this month. Each designer will choose a comment and that person will win a prize from Magnolia Sweden!

Now on to my projects. First of my projects is for Just Magnolia. Our theme is Anything Goes with an option of Sparkle. I chose a Birthday card that I made for my friend's daughter. I just love the border. I think it's a perfect card for a little girl.

Here's my project for Fussy and Fancy, Our theme is Anything but a card. I chose to do another frame. I'm making them as gifts and gave this one to my friend Sherri, an early Christmas present. I just love the way it came out. I think the cotton balls make a great blanket of snow. I think it would look great on a card too.. add a sprinkle of glitter ; )

The framed Magnolia is AMAZING! What kind of glue do you use for the flowers to stay? I need something new cause what I use just doesn't work well.

Thanks for playing with us at Paper Sundaes this week!
