The wallpaper saga + Just Magnolia week 82-White and another colour + Sweet Stampin-Its all about Snowflakes + Saturday Challenge 109

Good morning everyone are you all well and warm, I hope your warmer than me, first thank you all so much for your fantastic comments, I haven't had a chance to catch up as I'm decorating which brings me onto the wallpaper saga...now they say women are terrible shoppers, well my Dad decided he wanted to decorate his lounge and hall...the colour...cream now how hard is it to choose a cream wallpaper and border?...it took us two and a half weeks to get him to choose, wallpaper, paint and a border so we went armed with our paint swatches, wallpaper and border sample to B&Q to finally buy it, walked over to the wallpapers to get his choice and he says oooohhhh we will just have that one that's on sale...WHAT!!!!!...I give up...he better never say anything about women shopping again...I thought about throwing a hissy fit but he was laughing so hard I didn't have the heart so I just joined in instead lol...my wonderful Dad has a wicked sense of humour...right onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia which is a a fantastic colour challenge this week, white and another colour, I chose white and lavender...the stamp is one of the new Christmas Tilda's coloured with distress inks and glittered, the paper I bought at the NEC but cant remember who its by, its embossed and sparkly thought, I punched out snowflakes and added an organza ribbon and some pearls and finished with some sparkly letters for the words, Im entering this for the Saturday challenge and Sweet Stampin challenge...when you have time hop on over to Just Magnolia to see the amazing work by the rest of the DT...have a wonderful day everyone
