report from the midnight biner - Double post day Just Magnolia challenge week 84-Anything goes plus sparkle + Crafty Catz Guest DT spot-Happy New Year

Good morning firstly wow a huge thanks for all your wonderful comments yesterday on my card, I love those digi's don't you, so beautifully drawn, I promise I will get round to your fab blogs to comment as soon as I can...at about midnight last night I remembered I hadn't put the rubbish bin out for the refuse men in the morning so one look outside and a shudder later I'm upstairs dressing for the antarctic, I had my pj's on two pairs of socks a pair of boots, my artic fleece, pink fluffy dressing gown and a green scarf, I'm slip sliding about dragging this huge black bin out to the end of the drive, managed to keep my footing until I stepped back in the house and whoosh and one bruised bum later sitting in a heap on the floor and I catch a glimpse of myself in the glass doors looking like the multicoloured mitchelin man, I couldn't get up for laughing, moral of this tale remember to put the bin out earlier in the day lol...its a double post day today so forgive the long post....first is my Just Magnolia challenge card which this week is an anything goes challenge with a touch of sparkle...I chose this fab Edwin, I don't think hes used enough do you

I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with some of the new Basicgrey Marjolaine, the spotted is called Buttercream and the check is Molten cake, the stunning puffed glittery letters are Thicker's and I'm so proud of the snowflakes as these are the first I have made from acetate and covered in glue and glitter, messy but so worth it I think, the sketch is from Simon says challenge and I'm also entering this for the Stampin for the Weekend Winter challenge (oops too late)

Right now my second card is for the fab Crafty Catz challenge 61, Happy New Year where the lovely Suzie kindly asked me to do a Guest spot and I jumped at the chance

I used this Mo's Digital Pencil Reach for the Stars image which is perfect for New Year I think, I also did a little word art on it to put the Happy New Year logo on his sash, hes coloured with Distress inks and I teamed him up with this Craft Creations paper which is so glittery in real life but really doesn't show up too well on here...all I needed to finish was a stunning gingham ribbon and one of my swirly bows (you fed up seeing these yet lol)

I'm also entering this for the Cute Card Thursday-The Blues challenge...when you have time hop on over to Just Magnolia challenge and Crafty Catz to check out what the rest of the super talented DT's have come up...wow stunning work as always...have a fantastic dry booty day everyone and thanks for bearing with me through the long post

Hi Mina,
Firstly your cards are beautifully done. Gorgeous colours and images. Brilliant as usual.
On Monday night William cleared a path down the drive so he could put our bin out - it took ages - but there was so much snow overnight that the bin lorry didn't come so he had to clear the path again to take it back in.
Hugs,
Fiona x
