Midweek Magnolias – Christmas Surprise

Hello, Friends  and Happy Hump Day!

I accidently deleted this original post as I've been sick with the flu and fever so I'm trying to at least put the photos back in for the Challenges I entered with this project.

 I used Sandra's template from the Magnolia Ink Magazine to create my Skate shape but modified the box that is between the two cuts. Sandra also has cutting files available on her website for this project.


I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Simply Magnolia - Tis the Season
Totally Tilda - Tilda Sitting Pretty
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Tilda's Town - Celebrate Christmas
I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias.

Happy Holiday Hugz,
