Do I have you singing yet? hehehe. The song is definitely in my head :)
The challenge this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is "Your Favourite Things"... and well, lets just say I packed a few of mine onto this card. If you are looking for inspiration, the DT has done an amazing job this week, as they do every week so I encourage you to check out the Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog.
I have used the most adorable Magnolia stamp I own - this is "Lilla Ballerina" from Summer 2006 - wow hey? I just adore the early Maggies. I've coloured her with Copics but the blue hue and the grass is done with Prisma pencils. Something I love to do is use a fun Doo Hickey die on the edge of my card and kraft is usually the cardstock I choose for my card base. It is a great neutral cardstock that I pick up again and again. Some more of my favourite things on this card are.... stitching, lace, pearls, a charm, Magnolia papers (gorgeous texture and quality), and flowers (from Wild Orchid Crafts).
The sentiement is also a Magnolia Stamp from the Pets and Animals 2009 collection - and I just love it, my friends are a one of my favourite things ;)
So enough chatter from me ... Please join us this week at MDUC, we would love to see what your favourite things are.
I would like to enter this card into these challenges:

I also want to show you something pretty amazing - a painting my Mum in law did for our dining room - wow - I wish I could paint! It is a little hard to see in the photo (I took it when the sun was going down) but the detail is just amazing.
Well.. that is it from me today. I am working on projects for the next Magnolia Ink magazine right now (yep! the autumn edition already!) so I may be a little quiet for the next couple of weeks. I will have a little something sweet up for grabs for you in the next few days however, so please don't go too far!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
