Magnolia Down Under Challenge


Thank God for card making! Sometimes it is the best thing for cheering you up after an unpleasant day...This card should cheer anybody up (although sometimes I do feel very tempted to put a smile on Tilda's face)! This is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge "Winter is here".
I have to be honest and say it hasn't really been that cold here on the Gold Coast. Its about 15 degrees celsius on my car temp when I drive to work and it must get up to about 22-25 degrees during the day (I am not sure). The sun is out and shining and I even put on a bit of fake tan tonight as I am itching to get out of pants and into a skirt...see how I go tomorrow morning! Anyway besides all of that it is winter and I chose a tilda all rugged up in the cutest little Santa outfit. Well that's what it reminded me of and so my card turned out all red and white! But - I didn't want it to be too Christmassy as that was last fortnight's challenge so I added some red flowers and a big red bow. I didn't put a sentiment on - thought I might leave it blank so the card becomes more versatile.
One of the kids told me today that it is only four months till the end of the year and when I did the maths I realised she was right! Can you believe it... 8 months down and 4 to go. I think I must be suffering from mid-term blues at the moment and it is never pleasant! But on a more positive note, I will tell you some fun things we did at school today, boomerang throwing on the oval and painting. Friday tomorrow - yeehah! Bring on the weekend I say! Hope you are having a good week. Thanks for visiting.
