MAG-nificient cards and a Kiss reveals..

Happy stamping Tuesday friends! So before we continue with a brilliant showcase today, I wanted to post the result of our Frog Prince poll that we did yesterday. Now I know that many of you thought our little frog was going to be Edward but alas it is not... so I did a tally of the many names and photos that came in yesterday and a prince has been crowned. (Sadly my Gerry Butler wasn't even in the top 3. Even sadder Hugh Jackman didn't even make the list.) But here's our frog prince after a big smoooooch:


Josh Holloway
(he beat Rob Patti by one vote!!!!) lol!

Almost everyone sent in like 3 choices. hahahahaha! Ok so last night was browsing through the galleria and I just couldn't stop looking at these cards!!! So I just HAVE to share. Don't you just love them! Details, layers, color galore!!! Oh my oh my!

Today's question is: The best thing about Christmas is....

The smell of baked gingerbread and other stuff in the kitchen!

Wow Mag these are amazing cards the colouring, the design simply everything. I think the best thing about christmas is watching the children walking into the room to see what "Santa" has left for them x

Mag's cards are amazing! I wish my brain would work that way and allow me to use layers and colors like that. My favorite thing about Christmas is that people are nicer. Well, usually they are nicer.

Mag said...

Oh what a surprise this morning when I saw my cards on the blog !!!
I've just thought that my eyes were not totally open !!!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. So warmly. It makes me so happy, really.
I'm in love with TGF stamps and it's a real pleasure for me to colour Anya and her friends !!!
Thank you so much :)
For me the best thing in Christmas is my little boy's eyes when he wake up and see all the Santa's gifts !!!

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

Wow, those cards are STUNNING!

The best thing about Christmas.... the feeling of hope and good cheer. I could feel it even on the Christmas where I was in an empty house without furniture, waiting for my husband to arrive from cross-country. He got there at 11:45 p.m. on Christmas Day and had just enough energy left to eat a little of the ham I'd managed to warm up even though all our kitchen stuff was on the moving van. We didn't even open our presents until the 26th. But I felt so wonderful all day, looking forward to him arriving!

kadie said...

oooh that is a REALLY good pic of Josh H. WOW!! I can't wait til FEB now when LOST airs! whew!

MAG OMGOSH!!! Those cards are INCREDIBLE works of art. Just STUNNING! So many details and the coloring and shading are amazing!

My fave thing about Christmas is wrapping prezzies and then seeing peoples faces as they unwrap the prezzies.

Erin said...

All the decorations.

nonapearl said...

resmith said...

My favorite part of Christmas is all the baking and then watching all the young ones with their excitement of opening their gifts.

Lisa T said...

PaperCrafty said...

Fabulous creations!!

Farida Rone said...

To be all the family together and open the presents.

MommaJess said...

Holy cow those cards are beautiful. I wish I had an ounce of that talent.

OK so I'm sorry Josh Holloway is not who I'd like to see as my Frog Prince and neither is R Pat. If I had to choose I would say Bradley Cooper. Yummy.

As for the things I like best about Christmas. I would hav eto say seeing the enjoyment that my children get from this time of year.

Nancy said...

The chill in the air and mint M&Ms!!!

Christine said...

The twinkle in my great-neice/nephews faces when I pull their presents out of the bag!!! It doesn't get any better than that!

Blessings,
Christine

I think the best thing about Christmas is giving. I LOVE giving! Of course, giving wouldn't be any fun without family and friends around at Christmas time. :)
