twinkle twinkle little snowflake...

Good morning everyone I hope your all doing great, did any of you watch the new series Pan Am? how fabulous is the soundtrack to it and how about Frozen Planet wow wow wow to those amazing filmakers, the phtography is beautiful I almost feel like Im there when Im watching it, well I'm happy to report yesterdays supermarket shop was trouble free lol...at last here's two photos taken with my new camera...its a fab bit of kit, it seems to suck all the light available into my photos, which makes them seem a bit blue to me, but maybe that's because my others were a bit yellowish...I would love to know what you think of them, good and bad as I'm still not sure if they are right yet, they look far too bright to me...I made chicken soup last night...by the way if you would like the recipe for my chicken and veg soup let me know I will do a post for it, although I think soup is a personal thing and most people have a family recipe they love...my beautiful Daughter and her other half came for dinner (I thought they would when they knew soup was made lol) and we had a lovely evening chatting and enjoying our dinner together, I love family meals don't you...my Dad is off to my Sister in Belfast for a few days then later this month he is off to England to my other Sister...I love him getting away, not that I don't miss him but I think its good for him to travel, get about and meet up with family and old friends...right now onto my card for today which is for the Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and wwwooohhhoooo this week I'm the host and my choice is...er...ribbons...well come on now what else could it be, so lets see all your gorgeous makes with either a teeny bit of ribbon or a huge amount and anything in between...I cant wait to see what you come up with...I used this gorgeous little Tilda from the new Sweet Christmas collection, I'm loving this collection aren't you, this little one is called A Little Gift Tilda, isn't she so cute and I love her plaits, I coloured her with distress inks and added a little bit of glitter to her wings, ribbons and gifts...I used her along with more of the Magnolia Sweet Christmas paper, this gorgeous paper is called Vintage Hellebore's, the stamp and paper is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I used some beautiful two tone sheer ribbon as a ruffle and added a big bow and finished with some Anita's sparkly glitteration white snowflakes...the fab sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge and I'm sure there was a couple of more I was going to enter it for but I cant find my note book...it comes to something when you need a note to remind you of where you stashed your notebook lol...well I'm having a crafting day today whatever your up to have a fab day and when you have time pop on over to Just Magnolia challenge to check out the rest of the DT's amazing makes

I love this Tilda and your fab papers, I don't know if your picture is just a wee tad to bright, but it's early days yet, bet you are not half way through the book yet....maybe it's just that mine are so bad!
Yes please, lets have the soup recipe, I love making soup

Hanneke said...

Hi Mina, this card is adorable! That Magnolia looks really sweet, I love the long braids. I think your pictures look quit allright, maybe a bit too bright on the bottom. Maybe you can find a page in the manual talking about the lighting (aperture) and you can set it to make it a little less bright. Hope that helps. Hugs, Hanneke
