Magnolia-licous October Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop.  Once a month on the 25th, some of the members of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group have a blog hop with Christmas cards.  Great way to work on those cards year round.  If you arrived from Jessica's blog, you are in the right place.  If you get lost along the way, you can see the full list on the Magnolia-licous Christmas All Year Long Blog.

This adorable Tilda with Violin image came to me from my friend Linda.  She was so much fun to color, I think I'll be adding this one to my next order.  Diana has a great selection of Maggies at the Magnolia-licous web shop.

I'm entering her into two challenges.  Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #47, which is to use flowers this week.  Also, entering into the ABC Christmas Card Challenge.  They are on the letter V.  The vertical sketch is for letter V and I used an image with a "v"iolin, and lots of the color "v"iolet.  Such a fun challenge, I had a blast trying to come up with some V items.

Thanks for stopping by today, now hop on over to the talented Leonie's blog and see what fabulous project she has crafted.
