Magnolia-licious June Christmas Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Once a month the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group holds a Christmas card blog hop. It's a great way to get some Christmas cards made year round. I just looked at my stash today and was thrilled that I have a nice selection of Magnolia Christmas cards ready for next year! If you want more info check out the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog.

This is one of my first Tildas and remains one of my favorites. She looks so cute in her skating outfit and skates. For the layout of this card I used Midnight Madness sketch (MMSC59). I also used Sparkle's Christmas card challenge #29 this week, it was a recipe challenge to use 3 dsps, 2 buttons, 1 ribbon and a transparency. I die cut some snowflakes from a transparency and edged them in stickles.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now hop on over to Kerry's blog and see what she has created.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI ssw, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, and PTI Christmas patterned paper
Embellishments: nesties, copics, stickles, crystal effects, SU ribbon, MM rhinestone brads, PTI buttons
