Time for a Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!! Two for One!!

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! It's the third Monday of the month, and that means it's time for the Magnolia-licious Design Team to have a blog hop! WHOOT WHOOT! For the hop this month, we are doing "Two for One"! We took a holiday image and used it for he holiday it was intended for, and then switched it up to show you how you could stretch your stash and use it for something else too! FUN, huh??!!  Now if you've made your way here from the amazingly talented Norma, then you're on the right track. If not, then you'll want to start at Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog so you don't miss a thing! Here's what I made


I used the adorable #287 Dancing with Stars Tilda in two way. I first put her on a Christmas card (which she was meant for), and then also used her on a birthday card. She would be perfect for ANY occasion, or for no occasion at all, such as a Thinking of You card.  Dancing With Stars Tilda is from the new Little Christmas Collection 2012. I love every one of the stamps in this little collection which you can order right now at Magnolia-licious!!  Diana has a vast collection of Magnolia images in both the regular size as well as the mini versions!! And not only does she have loads of Magnolia goodness, but she carries an awesome selection of the most popular Dies available today! So please be sure and visit Magnolia-licious today and check out all the wonderful selections!! Now I'll just shut up and show you some pictures. :)



So now it's time to hop on to see what gorgeous creation Tracy has for you today! Thanks so much for hopping along with us today and enjoy your week!! Hugs!
