March Magnolia-licious Christmas Blog Hop

Each month on the 25th the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group holds a Christmas blog hop. Check out the Magnolia Christmas All Year Long Blog for all the deets. It's a great way to get a Christmas card done each month using your Magnolia stamps.

I used the Friday Sketchers sketch #94 for my card layout. I'm also linking it to Sparkle's Christmas card challenge #16 for this week. The theme is your favorite part about the holidays, and my favorite part, now that I have kids is Christmas Morning. To see it through their eyes is just priceless! This Tilda is called Christmas Morning Tilda. She is available at the Magnolia-licious store, but I'm not linking it here right now, because they are in the midst of switching servers, and will be back up and running soon.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hop on over to Kerry's blog for the next stop on the hop.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Christmas Morning Tilda
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI vintage cream, SU Always Artichoke, Basic Gray Wassail
Embellishments: copics, stickles, stitching, gold mini brads, SU retired organdy ribbon, dimensionals, white gel pen
