Midweek Magnolias 100th Challenge Celebration Blog Hop


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

We are celebrating our 100th Challenge this week at Midweek Magnolias. So the Design Team decided to have a Blog Hop in celebration of this phenomenal feat.

If you just arrived from Suzi’s blog then you are on the right track. If you need to start over go to the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog and start at the beginning.

Here is the blog hop line up just in case you get lost.

Your project or card must follow the “Celebration” theme and rules on the Challenge Blog to be eligible for one of the prizes.


For the celebration I decided to make a Christmas card since it is just around the corner and I added a darling shaker card element.

My project features "Ski Star Tilda" from the brand new 2014 Waiting for Christmas collection. Not certain what her official name is yet but I will update this post when the information becomes available.


I used some new papers from Doodlebug Designs and lots of new die cuts. I colored Tilda with Copics to coordinate with my papers and embellies and I added a bit of glitter to her hat. The shaker has a mixture of Diamond Dust, Glitter and Flower-soft for the snow.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. I had a lot of fun coloring her.
