Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes & Blog Hop

Season's Greeting!!!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge and a Blog Hop for your holiday enjoyment. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden and 7 Kids College Fund is offering a gift certificate as well.

To celebrate this fabulous Holiday season many of the DT members are hosting a candy giveaway. I have an extra brand new Magnolia Vintage Box Volume 2 (Circus) and some other goodies I will be sharing with one lucky commenter. I will choose a random winner and publish at the next challenge on January 4th.

If you got here from Suzi then you are on the right track. If not head back to the challenge blog to start from the beginning.

To inspire you for this challenge and get those creative juices flowing I created a huge snow globe with a Magnolia winter scene. My snow globe features “Cocoa Tilda” and “Me and My Snowman” from the Aspen Holidays collection.

I water colored my images with Distress Inks and created a wintery background with a 3D sleigh for Cocoa Tilda from the Magnolia Santa’s Sleigh die and added some cute die cut gift boxes from PTI.

Here’s a close up of Cocoa Tilda.

Here’s a close up of Me and My Snowman.

Here is a shot from above showing the sleigh and gift boxes in the snow.

As I mentioned earlier, just leave me a comment and I will choose a winner for my Christmas Candy. Good Luck and I hope to see your fabulous cards and projects entered in our challenge

Your next stop is the fabulously talented Julie

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all.

Love and Hugz,

I'm so loving this snow globe. What a gorgeous centerpiece for the holiday table. I have the Me and My Snowman stamp (haven't inked it yet) but am kicking myself for not getting the Cocoa Tilda stamp now that I see it colored up so beautifully. I've been getting the emails with your creations and have been loving them all.
