Magnolia-licious Blog Hop and a touch of sweet stuff!!

Hey everyone! It's time for the Magnolia-licious monthy Design Team Blog Hop, and this month we are VERY excited to have the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Design Team joining us!! So you should be able to fill yer boots with tons of Magnolia inspiration today!!!! If you've made your way here from the fabulously talened Cathy Lee, then you're in the right spot! If not, then you want to go back to the beginning at the Magnolia-licious Hightlites Blog so you don't miss out on anything. So here's a little info about what we're doing today. There are TWO ways you can win an amazing prize from Diana at Magnolia-licious. You can play along with the challenge (see all the details at Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog), or you can "count the candy canes" (all details are on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog). Here's what I've come up with for you today. I chose a tag with a sleeve from the Silhouette Store and cut it with the Cameo and decorated it from there. I turned the inside tag into a gift card holder by cutting two tags and cutting one of them in half and attaching it to the back of the main tag with Scor Tape. Voila! Gift card holder!!

On the sleeve, I used an older Tilda from Magnolia-licoius. I believe she's called Santa's Little Helper, but I can't find her in the store. She's sitting on #509 Snowy Roof from A Christmas Story Collection which is in stock and ready to be sent to you! They are both colored with Copic markers.

.
Now you can see a portion of the gift card holder on the inside of the sleeve.


Here's the pair together. On the inside I used #356 Tilda with long hair. She is also colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was simply printed on the computer.


 So now it's time to move on to the next stop in the hop, the gorgeous and awesomely talented Eulanda!  But before you go, I've got two Magnolia stamps I'd like to give to someone. So leave a comment by Sunday night, 11:59pm Pacific time, and I'll pull a winner!! Thanks so much for hopping with us today and please be sure to stop over at Magnolia-licious for all your Magnolia needs!! Hugs!

Good morning Sharon (or is it still night). Couldn't sleep so thought I'd check my e-mail & how nice to see this happy little pair of Tildas ... So darn cute & colored up so perfectly for the Holidays..love the gift card idea as that is always a perfect gift to put in a little hidden tag . Hope I can get back to sleep but now have visions of Sugar Plumb Tildas dancing around in my head so it's doubtful.
Of all the images out there the Tilda & Edwins are still my all time favorites to play with, have a wonderful day my friend & color me some more Tildas to drool over as that always jump starts my day & put me in a happy place. I adore each of your creations & cant wait for your nest release...
Love you girl, Janie

Bill bought me a Tablet so now I can check my emails and do a little blog surfing. Still trying to get used to the key pad so it apologize for any typo's that might occur. I love your tag!! Your coloring is stunning! You have a wonderful eye for embellishments and the lift out tag is a perfect "match".

Warm hugs.
Barb :-)
