Gingerbread Hearts

This is my latest Christmas card...

And it's another peek-a-boo card.

My tutorial HERE if you're interested.

One of the adorable Magnolia images that I am featuring is this Joyful Tilda from the new A Christmas Story Collection 2012.

The second one is this Tilda With Christmas Baking from last year's Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.  I thought the two Tildas with their gingerbread heart cookies go well together, don't you? 

The stamps for both these adorable images are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Diana has a vast collection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  The very latest Nativity Collection 2012 is in store now--check it out HERE--and oh, the images are so cute!!!

Not to be missed are the variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStampsMarianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs. Check out Magnolia's new Christmas doohickey cutting dies.
Diana provides excellent services, discounted prices and you also earn in-store credit for every order.
