Warm Holiday Wishes!!!!!!

Good afternoon!!!

I have my Magnolia Down Under project to show you.
Lots of pictures and a long post so be ready.... tee hee heeeeeee...
I loved doing this project!!!

I have a couple of special little surprises at the end of the post.
so read on!!!

This weeks challenge is an easy one.

It is a sketch
I hope that you will find some time to join us in the fun!

First of all here is my card using the very fun sketch.
I have used lots of fun snowflakes with lots of glitter on my card.

That little cutie is called Snowy hug and you can get her at Magnolia-licious.

Papers are: bazzill cardstock, Melissa Frances, MME, MM
The sentiment is by inkadinkado

Embellies: snowflake mini's, snowflake buttons, shipping tag, checked ribbon, dollie, bakers twine

I have used my sweing machine on this card and inked all of the edges with my Ranger distressed inks.

I have used my copic markers to color all images on this post and I have a list at the bottom.

Next up is the candle that I put the same Snowy Hug image on.

I have added the same checked ribbon along with a few snowflake buttons and holly with berries and a fun little gold star. I have also used my stickles on this image.

Oh let me give you a link to a tutorial to make a candle.

Okay now for one of the surprises!!!!

The Mini's are coming!!!
They are the cutest LITTLE TINY things!!!! They are so quick to color!!!

They are soon to be released at Magnolia-licious as Magnolia Mini World. These little cuties are going to be perfect for smaller cards and on the insides of your normal cards!!!
I do believe that they are going to be exclusive to Magnolia-Licious.


I have taken the Magnolia Doo Hickney Vintage tag and stamped the image on it and used my copic markers to color. I have used my Ranger distressed ink on the edges.
I have added snowflakes, bakers twine and sheer ribbon.
It makes a great gift tag for this very fun candle!!
What do you think?

Wonderful card and the candle project -- can't wait to get my minis! Your card design is great - the bow takes your eye right through the center of the card up to the sentiment - great planning!

LINDA W. said...

I love your card...your coloring is great..the candle will make a great the mini's
so great for small projectS and Christmas ornaments...TFS

dmbennett said...

Wow. I love your card and candle. The tag is great too. The mini's are going to be soo great. I would probably use them the most for inside of my cards as I don't make alot of tags. I can't wait for them to become available. I would use the reg size for the main image on the front of a card and the smaller mini one for inside of the card. Can't wait for them.

Peggie said...

Beautiful card and in my favorite color too - pink. What could be cuter. Well maybe the candle with all that glitter on snowy. I think the new minis are just adorable. I can't wait to be able to purchase some.

Madge H. said...

Absolutely stunning. The minis will be just so sweet to adorn the inside of cards.
rubber hugs, inky wishes, Cricut chirps and Cuttlebug squishes,
