Magnolia Down Under Challenge #206



At Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have been asking our DT for their favourite challenges and this week it's MY turn! I decided to go with Christmas in July as it holds a special place in my heart. My family began to cook a full Christmas feast in July long before it became popular. You see July is my birthday month and when we moved to Australia I went from having a Summer birthday to a Winter birthday. This also meant we had to celebrate Christmas in a hot Australian Summer. We decided my "special meal"  for my birthday would be a Christmas feast with ALL the trimmings as Winter is a much more pleasant time to cook and enjoy this fare.

Because it's not actually Christmas time now I thought I would use some non-traditional colours on my card.

Don't forget to see what the rest of our team came up with on our BLOG.

Copics used - Skin (E11, E00, E000, R20, R11) plus E18, E15, E13, T4, T2, T0, B34, B32, B000, B0000, YG17, YG07, YG06, YG01

Hita debbalicious, how yo doing?! I have been meaning to email you for MONTHS, but I am a bit of a naughty girl, and keep forgetting. I have photos of a special little lady I want to shw you :-) anyways, thought I would catch up on some blogs tonight and I have to say it funny to see you post a gorgeous Xmas magnolia card as I have been thinking about getting out my Xmas Maggie's and having a play... Not sure if I will get there but I guess procrastinating is better than nothing, hehehe. Hopefully your gorgeous creation will give me a bit of motivation!
