Magnolia Down Under #118


I'm super excited and kinda nervous cuz the challenge at MDUC this week is a sketch.....but it's MY sketch!!  My first one ever and I'm pretty excited to see what people come up with.  I hope it's well liked!!  And thanks to Denise Boddey for amping it up for me!!  Thanks!

I hope you're not getting sick of all my Christmas cards but I've been so stressed out the last few years trying to get cards done that I just needed to start early.  

At first I was a little unsure of this card but since it's been sitting in my room it's started to grow on me.  This image is so adorable (thanks Donna!) but I'm not sure of the name.  I would guess Tilda with Christmas Tree.  LOL!!

So this sketch - hee hee - the bottom lacy looking layer....well that's my fence.  I REALLY worked around my own sketch to make it work.  LROL!!  But I think I might actually use this one again.  I love it!!  Ya, I'm a little biased.  hee hee

So don't forget to check out the DT inspiration at MDUC and check out the details of the prize and who's sponsoring us this week.  Thanks for looking!!!
