Midweek Magnolias Challenge #155-"New Crafty Stash" & Blog Hop Candy Winner!!

Well here we are in the middle of the first week of January!

With the New Year we usually celebrate all things new and that's exactly what we're going to do at Midweek Magnolias for the next two weeks!!  We want to see you use your "new crafty stash"!!  Our sponsor is as always the wonderful Magnolia Sweden!

The winner of my "candy" from the blog hop will be named at the end of this post!!!

Now I have been trying to clean out my very large existing stash BUT who can resist a little shopping for ourselves tucked in with all the goodies that we choose for our friends and loved ones at Christmas!!  I didn't receive my newest Maggies until about a week and a half before Christmas and only had time to work with one or two images SO I'm considering that part of my newest stash...then at the end of last week I received two of my on line orders filled with lots of yummy embellishments!!!  Merry (late) Christmas to me and a Happy New!!!  And then my copics have been acting up...becoming gummy so I had to rush out and search stores that stock them and hope that I could get the ones that I wanted in time to colour this up!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I finished the card that I didn't get done that was to go with my blog hop project...stuffed/filled/loaded envelope...
DP is Maja Design from the Vintage Frost Basics and Home for the Holidays 6x6 paper pads...
card base was cut using Go Kreate #360020...
 I just love this sweet Tilda..."Tilda with Little Rudolph" from the Aspen Holiday 2016 collection...
coloured with my (new) copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage...
framed with cheesecloth (new)...which I had a hard time finding...all my usual haunts were out of it...
then I framed this with a strand of my (new) pink pearls...
 these sweet reindeer are also from the Aspen Holiday 2016 collection...
I added tiny rhinestones for their eyes...
added a cheesecloth bow topped with rhinestone circle...
 larger oval matt is framed with ruffled ribbon...which came just in time amongst one of my new orders...

And that is my card!  Now I hope that you will check out the gorgeous makes that my talented teamies have to show you over at Midweek Magnolias then come on and join us in our first challenge of the New Year!!!
