Magnolia licious Christmas All year long blog Hop



Good Morning Dear Friends.

I am happy to welcome you to the April Magnolia-licious Chrismas All Year Long blog hop; Hope you had a lovely Easter day, and ate lotssssss of chocolate. I did... If you come from Corinne's blog, you are on the right track, if not you can start at the beginning by clicking HERE.   But before I show my card, I wanted to share with you, pure beauty! We had terrible weather lately, one day of full sun makes miracle, this picture is  a MAGNOLIA BLOOM... admire.





Bon matin chères amies,
Je vous accueille ce matin dans le cadre de la tournée des blogues de Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year LOng. J'espère que vous avez eu une belle journée de Pâques et que vous avez mangé beaucoup de chocolat! Si vous arrivez de  chez Corinne, vous êtes sur la bonne voie, sinon, vous pouvez commencer du début en vous rendant ICI . Ci-haut, voilà ce qu'une journée de soleil crée comme miracle, c'est un bourgeon de MAGNOLIA qui s'ouvre.

On to my card now, I started by choosing the wonderful sketch of Just Magnolia. It offered me the possibility of exploring a crocheted doily border as seen in the Valentine issue of Magnolia ink; however, I had seen Jeanet''s tutorial on a double border version, as we do in flowers, and I felt it was a nice challenge. I chose Waiting Tilda and the sled from the 2008 Magnolia Winter collection for this card, both were colored with copics, as well as the winter forest, both in large and mini version. On the trees, I used liquid applique and lotsssss of stickes, (diamond & frosted lace). My paper is from Snow day earthtones, from American Traditional Design, all my cartstocks are from SU, and the glittery cardstock is from Best creations.


J'ai choisi de travailler avec le sketch de Just Magnolia. Il m'offrait la possibilité d'explorer un  double tour au crochet autour de mon image tel que vu chez Jeanet's. C'était un défi à relever. J'ai choisi Waiting Tilda et le traineau e la collection Malgnolia Winter 2008, que j'ai colorié avec des copics, tout comme Winter forest, en version mini et régulière. J'ai aussi utilisé du Liquid Applique et beaucoup de stickles (diamond & frosted lace). Les papiers sont de la collection Snow day earthtones de American Traditional Design, mes cartons de SU et le carton brillant de Best Creations.


Thank you for stopping by, and telling me what you think about my card,  please continue your way to the very talented GLENDA to admire her wondeful creation. Have a lovely day!

Merci d'être venu me visiter, et de me laisser un mot, vous êtes maintenant en route pour le blogue de GLENDA, je suis certaine qu'elle vous a préparé une super création. Passez une belle journée.







PS: I though I'd show you  a bit of the beauty of where I live. At the end of my street, the St-Laurence river  runs majestically. I take my walk along the path every day. Last night, the sun was setting down and the colors were just magnificient.

J'aimerais partager avec vous un peu de la beauté du paysage, juste au coin de la rue chez moi. Le Saint-Laurent coule majestueusement, je demeure environ à 5 minutes des Rapides de Lachines. La petite vague ci-dessous, est prisée amateurs de planche.

Okay - that does it - after seeing your pictures, I am definitely coming to stay with you for my private card making lessons!!! Yes, dear heart - I am in Florida and fighting with a slow computer that I am not sure what it wants me to do - Your card is wondeful and I love the handwork that frames in Tilda. Oh how pretty it is where you get to walk --

Wow utilisé le crochet dans une carte. On n'a l'impression que sa nous réchauffe malgré la neige. C'est vraiment un ajout qui apporte beaucoup. Ça fait changement et ça donne une texture différente. J'aime beaucoup.
