Magnolia-licous Holiday Hop

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Holiday Hop where several of the design team are sharing fabulous Christmas ideas!!!!

 There are two ways to win a $50 Gift Certificate prize from Magnolia-licious on this hop:

1.  Each design team member participant will have a number in their blog post, total the number from all the DT posts and email Cathy at with the sum.  Cathy will choose a random winner from all the correct responses she receives. 


2.  By participating in the Hop Challenge and creating a Holiday project.  A random winner will be chosen from all entries.  The Hop Challenge will run until the end of November.

Here is my Christmas project for the hop:

My sweet hubby cut me some wood blocks and I just modge podged some paper on it.  The chipboard tag was painted with chalkboard paint.  I added some feet and a handle and wha la - a Christmas countdown to use over and over and it was so easy.

Here's a side view.  You can see I used the little Tilda called Vintage Tilda.  I know she is a little older, but she is still so cute!  I colored her with a Inktense Pencils.

In case you get lost, here's the lineup of the hop:

                                                            Dena (that's me)
                                                           Chris C
                                                           Patti Jo

Be sure you:

1.        Like us on our Magnolia-licious Facebook Fan Page
2.       Leave a comment on each DT’s post during the hop.
3.       At the end of you Hop return to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and leave a comment there as well for a chance to win a prize.

My number in the scavenger hunt is "2" and your next stop is the ever so talented:


Thank you for coming by my blog for the hop, I know you will enjoy all the creations!!

Hugs, Dena
