It's a Magnolia-licious Blog HOP!!

How excited am I to be participating in the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop this month. On the 25th of every month, this blog hop takes place for fun & inspiration!!
 If you are interested in being involved for next month pls pop over to the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group to sign up.

If you have come here from Cordine van der Touw's blog ....then you are on the right track, if you get lost along the way please go back to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog to find the master list.

Ok, so I have taken a not so Christmassy Tilda Stamp called Tilda with a Gift from the Your So Special Collection & paired her with some Christmas papers & embellies.This stamp is currently out of stock at the Magnolia-licious Store, but the Mini-version IS available! ((Check back for availability.))
I have colored her with distress inks, and as much as I love the effect, it really takes time & patience, both of which I don't have very much of with 3 children hanging off my every limb! LOL
Decorative pins were made my moi with the help of Debs' awesome b-day gift to me, a container of mixed beads & the golden snowflakes are a gift from Trisha. Magnolia Doohickey Die I  borrowed from Lori & punched a buncha papers with it! NOW I want one for sure!

Your next stop along the way of this fabby inspiration filled 'seasonal' hop is the talented Kathy Curry at

I'd like to draw inspiration for my creation from the following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under- Christmas in May
Crafty Emmas- Embellish it
Creative Inspirations- Christmas in May
Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog- sketch (see below)

Your card is so sweet! I love the colours your used and the little Maggie is precious. The pins you made are gorgeous and how cute is that wonky little tag for the greeting. Very smart lady for getting to work on making your Christmas cards so early!
Thanks for sharing! :)
