Stamin Chic Be Chic challange, and a few others!

I really didn't know what to make for my favourite challenge this month-so I decided to enter the 'Friends' scrapbook I made to sell. I decided on friends because I thought this might also appeal as a Christmas gift, so we shall see. I have started a Christmas scrapbook too, but your have to give me a week or two to finish it!
Here we are then

Magnolia Too Challenge and Basic Grey

Well, this is the first time I have entered Magnolia Too Challange and Basic Grey. In fact its the first time I have played with Basic Grey papers!!! I will be doing lots more playing believe me. I had little interest in their products, but won some Basic Grey stamps and they were lovely, and stamped beautifully, so I decided to give in and get some Lemonade papers! I can't wait for Eskimoo Kisses to come and those adoreable stamps! A girl can't have too many Christmas papers can she???
Anyway the challenges. Magonlia Too is to create a 3D tilda-I had lots of fun doing this-and I shall definately do it again. Basic Grey asked us to create cards with a pink-brown-yellow scheme.

And this is behind me, ther are 2 sets of drawers where Ican store most of my stuff, I must admit I have to put other stuff there too! It needs a good sort out again really. On top is my Silhouette machine, bind it all and sewing machine-which ı really need to use more of. One day maybe I will have a whole room and then I will place everything out ready to use but I really love my cute corner.
thanks for looking everyone and have a great crafty day!

New Daisy Dandelion card

Hi All.
Been so busy making lots of new cards-I was planning to show you several but photobucket is exceptionally slow today so the other will have to wait for another day.
Here's the teddy card I made last night, I am really pleased with it, a basic, simple design which took over an hour! Oh yes, that might have been because I was watching Moonlight at the same time!
I used
Prima Flowers;
Papermania Brads
Daisy Dandelion Papers, and Stamps
Claire Curd Stamps for him
Ribbon from my Stash
Glitz it glitter
watercolor pencils.
Thanks so much for looking and have a great day.
