Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Yippee Skippee!!! I'm so excited to be joining in the blog hop. This is my very first time participating. What a great way to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I hope you'll be inspired by all of the creativity you'll find as you hop along with us.

If you get lost along the way or forget where you're headed (LOL.....this happens to me on a daily basis.....LOL) you can go back to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop & pick up where you left off. You will find a list of all the participants there. We're all linked together so you can visit from one to another until you're right back where you started. LOL
For my Christmas card I used my cute little Magnolia 'Longing Tilda' stamp. I just love her. She is soooo versatile. I also inked up my Magnolia 'Tin Boxes' stamp. You can cut these tins apart (after stamping of course) & use them in so many different ways. These were colored with my Copics. I also used my Magnolia Doohickey diecuts: 'Swirl' (it comes with a 'leaf' as well), Vintage Tag and Romantic Lace Border. You can find all of these wonderful Magnolia products at Diana's Magnolia-licious store. The diecuts cut like 'buttah'.....such a dream to use. Just look at all the swirlies I used on this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Your next stop on the Blog Hop is TANYA.

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for visiting my blog. You are actually really close to me. I'm in Apple Valley. I hope to do future classes at iCopic. If I could get enough people interested I would consider do classes in my home, too. I hope your hand feels better soon. Not being able to color would kill me :P

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Mindy

Bengelmama said...

Hello. Your card is beautiful. On the Internet there is a woman that your
Cards with pictures steals. She cuts off her colorized and Tildas
stick it on their cards.

That's not fair to the woman
