Magnolia Tilda Stars as Anna in Frozen!

Hello Dearest Readers,

How are you this Superbowl Sunday? The big game will be on soon. We're rooting for the Seattle Seahawks. My DH just loves this team, so we have to cheer them to a victory!

I am of Italian decent; however, I am working on improving my Vietnamese/Thai cooking skills! We love the food of both cultures. I decided to try cellophane noodles with Dungeness crab. My city is so small that we spent days trying to locate the noodles. Finally, we found them under the name of mung bean threads! Tah Dah! Success! I got to work right away soaking them. Next came cleaning and harvesting the meat from the crab. After cooking the dish, DH and I sat down and LOVED it! My husband is such a fussy eater! Since he's gotten sick, he's getting very hard to please. I was so glad he gave the recipe a chance. He said it was so good that he would eat it again! There is still another recipe I want to try soon. It's rice cakes, but they are made in an Ebelskivers pan. I have the pan and thought it would be a fun way to use it. I'll let you know how it turns out!

Today begins a new challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog. Our theme for the next two weeks is…


We would like you to use lots of layers on your card! Here is my inspiration card:

Isn't it pretty? For just the papers, I have five layers. By the time you get to Tilda there are seven layers all together! LOL I chose Tilda with Hood (Winter, 2008) because she reminded me of Anna in Frozen. The paper I used is so beautiful. It is called FROZEN. You can find the FROZEN PAPER HERE. The colors in these papers is a soft bluish green. It is so beautiful. I added tons of snowflakes, some pretty lace, matching color seam binding, oodles of rhinestones, a cabochon of Anna and a fun snowman charm that reminded me of Olaf.

Here are some additional photos:

On this panel, I've, once again, did tons of layering. I have stitched the card with silver metallic thread. I used my Frostyville circle die for the center and added some rhinestones here and there. Then, I added the ribbon and the charm of the reindeer because he reminded me of Sven. LOL The panel is finished with some sparkle on the tree.

Here is the bottom panel:

Here, you can see the FROZEN text paper. If you look closely at the center bottom, you can even see the word "frozen." I repeated the layering, stitching, as well as the addition of winter elements found on the previous panels.

This card is so lovely! I'm so glad you got to see it! Leave a comment to let me know what you think.

I am so glad that you stopped by. I hope you will return again very soon!
