INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 20 AND MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHRISTMAS ALL YEAR LONG


Happy Friday,                   (La version française et le texte anglais s'alternent.).
The saying Two is better than one is all in force today! Not one challenge, but two! Friday is  Inventory Challenge day, for Christina and I, along with our fantastic team of followers; plus, today is the 25th of the month, also our rendez-vous for Magnolia-licious Christmas all year long blog hop.  If you follow the blog hop and arrive from  Barb you are on the right track.

Bon vendredi,

Que le temps passe vite! Nous voilà déjà à la fin de la semaine, et le mois est presque terminé. Un c'est bien, mais deux c'est mieux! dit le proverbe. Aujourd'hui c'est tout à fait vrai en ce qui concerne les défis. C'est notre rendez-vous hebdomadaire, pour notre Inventory Challenge No. 20 ayant pour thème N'importe quoi!; mais cette semaine, c'est aussi celui du Magnoli-licious Christms All year long blog hop, puisque nous sommes le 25. Si vous arrivez de chez : Barb, vous êtes sur la bonne voie.


Since time is always an issue, I managed to make one card suiting both! This project was inspired by a tutorial  for a criss-cross pocket card I saw on Jeanette's blog. I thought this style of card is very interesting, it offers lots of possibilities and is quite fun to make. AND, you can use scraps of paper!
My card features Tilda with Fir, presently not available at Diana's; I colored her with Distress inks on watercolor paper. I used stickles on her hat and coat.

Le temps est toujours un enjeu important, note thème se mariait parfaitement à une carte de Noël. J,ai pris l'inspiration pour cette carte sur le blog de Jeanette, plu précisément son tutoriel pour confectionner une carte criss-cross. J'ai choisi Tilda with fir (non-disponible présentement chez Diana) que j'ai colorié à l'encre distress sur papier aquarelle. Le pourtour de son mateau et son bonnet sont garnis de stickles




I also discovered the use of Stampin'up heat and stick powder, that I really like more than glue to stick glitters, This is the technique I used to decorate the inside card and the mistletoe leaves.

J'ai découvert combien peut être intéressant de travailler avec la poudre thermique de Stampin'up. Tout ce qui brille sur le carton intérieur est fait avec cette technique, ainsi que les feuilles de gui.
thank you for stopping by and leaving me wonderful comments. I love to thank everyone of you personally via email, however, I have experienced problems mysterious problems lately: all comments left on my blog stopped being transferred to my hotmail box, this without having changed anything into the Settings section of my blog.... It seems I am not the only one; however, the reason for this, is unknown. I suspect Microsoft Explorer for being responsible, as they experienced problems with their security settings, but cannot prove it. If anyone has any info on this matter, I would love to hear about it.

 I would like to invite your to visit my dear friend Chistina's blog,and our other team-mates blogs, which address are listed below, and view all their wonderful creation.

Merci de votre visite, et vos commentaires me font tojours beaucoup plaisir. J'aime bien vous remercier personnellement, maisdernièrement j'éprouvre des problémes mystérieux: sans avoir rien changé dans l'installation de mon blog, je ne reçois plus les commentaires dans ma boîte courriel. Il semble que je ne sois pas la seule, cependant, qu'avons nous en commun? Cela tient du mystère. Je commence à douter des paramètres dans Microsoft Explorer, concernant la sécurité des messages, mais je ne peux rien prouver. Si quelqu'un peut m'aider, j'apprécierais.


Magnolia licious blog hop followers, please continue to the very talented: Glenda.

Une carte de Noël quand on nous annonce une tempête de neige c'est très concept ma chère.... Comme toujours ta Tilda semble nous appeler pour aller l'aider à décorer son sapin....et Fêter avec elle peut-être... Toute ta carte respire l'harmonie. Bravo

Genevieve a dit…

Quelle élégance avec ce bijou!
Tilda est prête à braver le froid hivernal. Superbe ta colorisation.
J'aime beaucoup ce genre de type de carte, car on peut les faire de différentes grandeurs également selon nos besoins.
Effectivement, la poudre thermique de SU donne toujours de "superbes" résultats!
Toutes mes félicitations

Your card is gorgeous, Dani! You've done a beautiful job painting Tilda with the DI's. The dimension is fabulous. I haven't used Heat and Stick for so long I think I forget how to use it. Your glitter is so pretty done this way...This style of card is super to use up left over paper. I'll have to remember that! Hugs,
Barb

Bonjour, Danielle!
Your card is beautiful! I've used a lot this Tilda for my Christmas cards and love it. You've colored her amazingly. She looks so 'chrissy', as if painted from an old oil picture.
Lovely glittery heat embossing. Love it too!
Just adorable!
Hugs, Iulia

Hey Danielle! Your Christmas card is delightful - I too like this cris-cross pocket card. Y'all are so smart getting to your Christmas cards early. The colors you have used are beautiful together and the note inside is gorgeous! Will be looking into the heat and stick powder - it really shows up well on your card.

Danielle, I'm liking this blog hop. I'm getting a lot of inspirations from it. Only to my 2nd card and already 2 styles of cards that I haven't tried before. What a gorgeous card you've made. Beautiful colouration of this adorable Tilda. I've never tried DI, though (do you like it?). Thanks for the link for this criss-cross pocket card--I'll have to give it a try.

Hugs,
Norma

Ta carte est encore une fois bien réussit mais cette fois tu as utilisé un papier que j'ai depuis longtemps et que je suis incapable d'utiliser car il ne m'inspire pas donc doublements bravo... Et tu m'as peut-être inspiré pour mes carte l'année prochaine...
