Magnolia-licious Challenge

Did you all survive the Thanksgiving holidays?  I know I ate waaaaayyyy too much and had waaaayyy too much food for us.  I enjoyed having my brother spend several days with us though and having both kids home was wonderful.  There was absolutely no crafting time since the Tuesday before Thanksgiving because of all the flurry of activity haha!  I managed to make this card a while ago.

The Magnolia-licious Challenge for today is using DOILIES!  I mean, how super easy is that? It's like I use them on my cards always right? haha!  This time I used a square one.

I love, love, love the newest papers from the Winter Wonderland collection.  Aren't they pretty?  I did add a strip of Maja Design for a touch of red.

This little Tilda is called "Christmas Tilda With Cat".  I love her because she has that adorable kitty singing with her haha! Tilda was colored with a mixture of distress inks and Inktense pencils.  In case you are wondering that yellowish on the card is a shadow, weird huh!  I'm not sure why it came out yellow.

I used the "Snowy Forest Doohickey" and the branch from the "Cozy Fern and Snowflake Doohickey".  All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you will join in on the challenge especially since it is so easy and try your hand at winning!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for coming by my blog today!

Hugs, Dena
