Interactive Christmas Tag Blog Hop

Are you ready for some fun??!!!!  I'm going to start you out with my project for an interactive tag.  Both design teams for Magnolia-licious have been busy creating for our November Blog Hop and challenge.  There are TWO challenges:  ONE to make an interactive tag and TWO count the candy canes you find on the first image on each blog throughout the hop.  You will find more of the details at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog and also the list of names to follow along on the hop if you get side-tracked.  Diana is always so generous with her prizes and she is definitely in the Christmas spirit for the prizes for these challenges too!
I've used yet another adorable Tilda from the Little Christmas Collection 2012.  Here is a list of the items from Magnolia-licious:
27 MAGNOLIA TREE - leaves
The interactive part on my project is not only the folded flaps, but I also put a wobble mechanism behind Tilda and Jasper, so they do a little shimmy when the card is jiggled.  The images are colored with Promarkers.  The oval frame is a Spellbinders die, the embossing folder is Cuttlebug and I've added some pearls and ribbon.
That really nice Diana at Magnolia-licious offers store credit for purchases even on the already discounted prices AND free shipping for qualifying orders!!!  You will find they have a fantastic selection of Magnolia stamps, a wonderful assortment of dies and lots of other great products.

Now you will want to head over to that sweet and talented Cabio at Cabio's Craft Corner to see what creative project she has made.  We hope you will join us in these fun challenges!

EDIT:  People have been asking and I got my Wobbles from Amazon!
Enjoy every day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Joyful Tilda

 This adorable Tilda is another from the A Christmas Story collection.  She is very versatile as you can see and can be used other than Christmas too!
351 JOYFUL TILDA and you can find her at Magnolia-licious!  Tilda is colored with Promarkers.  I've used the flowers from 22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES DOOHICKEY DIE.

The oval is a Spellbinders frame, the corners are a Cuttlebug die and the butterflies and flower centers are Punch Bunch punches.  Pearls for the flower centers and white gel pen for accents.

She would be the perfect image for a tea part invitation wouldn't she!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always appreciate your comments!!!
Enjoy every day!

Edwin Makes Me Smile and Holly card

Been a little side-tracked from card making lately, but managed to get back into some card making.  Loved this image of Edwin and added some snowflakes in the background.  I think this Edwin can be used for not only holiday, but any winter occasion card.

I used the regular Smile stamp, but the mini is available.

Colored with Promarkers and used a snowflake punch and border punch for accents along with some half pearls and fancy yarn for the tie.

I loved the holly stamp that also came in the A Christmas Story collection and wanted to make a fairly simple and quick card that would be easy for mailing.

Also used an old season's greetings stamp along with a Cuttlebug holly embossing folder and a MS border punch.  I've colored with the Promarkers.

You will find a terrific selection of Magnolia products for all Maggie lovers at fantastic prices at Magnolia-licious.  There are also lots of wonderful dies and other fun products too!  Dies seem to be one of my latest addictions lately and there are so many new styles available.  You can check them out HERE!  (Click on the name brand in the left column.)

Besides offering such a great selection at Magnolia-licious, Diana and her team offer quick and awesome service.  Don't forget to check out the card gallery for inspiration.

Watch for the upcoming Blog Hop on the 29th of November and we hope you will join us!

Stay tuned.....another project coming tomorrow!!!
Enjoy every day!!!

Pixie Tilda on the Rooftop

 I really like this challenge that Dear Norma has come up with for this month's Challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!!!  Something hidden!!!  So many of the Magnolia images have a place where you can tuck a hidden message behind it.  Interactive cards are always fun to make and receive!
The Magnolia images I used are from Magnolia-licious:
26 MB MARIETTA BUCKLE DIE  (Cut in 4th and used in corners)

Merry Christmas is the Holly Post from the 2009 So Jolly Collection and the Christmas Story Paper, sorry, out of stock right now.   A couple of great substitutes would be 702 A MERRY CHRISTMAS and MINI PAPER PACK SWEET CHRISTMAS.  

Coloring is with the Promarkers.  The Celebrate is part of a Hero Arts Stamp. Spellbinders circle dies were used for the corners and medallion.  Ribbon and pearls for a little extra!!!!

Be sure to check out the wonderful specials Diana has at Magnolia-licious!!!  I like good deals and you will find them there along with great customer service!!!!  Love the bundles!!!

Hope you will put on your thinking caps and join us in the Hidden Challenge this month at Magnolia-licious Highlites.  Diana always offers a very generous prize for some lucky entrant!  Click HERE to get the details!

Thanks so much for your comments and appreciate you stopping by!
Enjoy every day!
