A Merry Little Christmas to You! A Christmas card with Magnolia, The Cutting Cafe, and the Cricut

Happy Friday everyone!! I didn't think this week was ever going to end, but it finally did, and I get to sleep in tomorrow morning. YAY! LOL! It's the little things, right? :) I'm working really hard on Christmas cards, and couldn't wait to use this cute little elf, #803 from Magnolia-licious, called Alf. He's available right now over at Magnolia-licioius. Isn't he precious??!! Diana has tons of fabulous Magnolia Christmas stamps in stock right now! So hurry and get your stamps now before they're all gone! Alf is colored with Copic markers.

The word circle is from The Cutting Cafe' called Christmas Circles Set 2, and it's cut out with circle Nestabilities. Regina has an AMAZING array of Christmas stamps availalbe at The Cutting Cafe', so please be sure and check them out. And if you're quick, you can still sign up for the wonderful set I'm giving away, but midnight tonight (Pacific) is the deadline!! Just click HERE. She's having a huge giveaway with a lot of the designers, so please be sure and check it out and visit the rest of the designers particpating. The links are all on The Cutting Cafe' site. The trees and scallop edged card are cut with the Cricut and Christmas Cheer cartridge, and the snowflakes are done with a Martha Stewart Punch. Papers are Basic Grey and Bazzil cardstock.
That's it for today! Wanted to let you know that we'll be having a Magnolia-licious blog hop on Monday. Sure hope you'll join in on the fun. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Have a wonderful weekend!! HUGS!
