Merry Christmas!!!

Woohoo....one Christmas card done!!!  Wow, was it hard to get in the mind frame for Christmas with 90 degrees outside!  Although when you are working with these cuties, it doesn't take long to get into the Christmas mode!

This is a card for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge for July 1st!  Our sweet hostess Janiel has encouraged us to work ahead and do Christmas in July!!!  Well we know that the year has already flown by fast, so I'm sure that will happen for the rest of the year too!  This is a good way to get started on those Christmas cards.

I've used some lovely beauties from Magnolia-licious of course!!!  Here is the list and links:
MINI #3001 WRAPPED TILDA
MINI #448 SANTA BENCH
#745 MERRY CHRISTMAS (Regular Size)
#31 MINI DOILY DOOHICKEY DIE
MINI PAPER PACK SWEET CHRISTMAS DREAMS
Some pearls have been added for accents along with a Sizzix die cut snowflake and Spellbinder circles and tag die cuts.  Images are colored with Promarkers and also a few pearls for the berries.  Have added some organdy ribbon and some white acrylic paint on the edges.

We hope you will join us for the challenge and Diana has a terrific prize offer too.  You will find the details HERE and find the fantastic collection of mini stamps and other great products at Magnolia-licious HERE!!!

Note:  According to the Highlites info, this challenge is not just minis.  I love using them, but you are welcome to use either size!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!!!
Patti Jo

This is just precious! I love the colors and the images you chose to use. I wish the challenge wasn't exclusive to minis, though. I do not have the vision to work with them :o( This is just adorable with wonderful layering and elements.
