The most Wonderful time of the Year - November blog hop

Hello! Happy Friday!
Do you realize it's the 25th of November? YES, Christmas is only a month away. Yikes!!!

Today is the last monthly blog hop for 2011 of the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Our blog hop group is part of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. I've been negligent in participating in the monthly blog hop...sigh, but since I have been making nothing but Christmas cards lately, this month I can take part...duh.

Anyway if you are doing the blog hop already and came here from Nadyne's blog then you are in the right place.

If you want to start in the beginning of the blog hop or are lost, here is a full list of the participants in blog-hop order:
Norma (you are here)

So this is the card that I've just finished.

I love this Magnolia cutie. She is called Tilda with Cross Stich Heart from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. Isn't she just adorable?

This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store for anything and everything Magnolia. Diana has a large selection of the full-size as well as the mini version of Magnolia stamps. Magnolia doohickey cutting dies are available there also. New in stock are Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn dies. And check out the Memory Box dies for pre-order--I've got to get some of these!!! Diana offers discounts, excellent services and you can earn store credits to boot!

My card is another easel card. I've used a Go Kreate die for the basic shape.

I would like to use this card as my entry to the following challenges:

Dutch Dare Dutch Dare Card Challenges – DDCC #140 – Recipe Challenge
(3 of ribbon, images, DP's, layers, embellishments)
Everybody-Art-Challenge #169 - Christmas Card
Deep Ocean - Challenge 13 - "C" as.... (Christmas)

I like the colour combo for this card. I think I will make more Christmas cards with these colours and woo-hoo...I still have lots of the DP's.

That's it for me for now. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate you visit very much and enjoy reading your lovely comments. Enjoy your weekend!
