Magnolia-licious Highlites January Blog Hop - "Love" theme

Hello!

It's time for our monthly blog-hop at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog.  The Magnolia-licious DT has a LOVE themed blog hop featuring some of the newest images from Magnolia's latest stamp collection With Love Collection 2013.
You can find more details on how to join in on the fun to WIN at the Magnolia-licious Highlites.

If you are doing the blog hop and  have arrived here from ANGELA's blog then you are on the right track. If not, then you may want to start at the beginning. Here is a list of my DT teammates in blog hop order:
Ruby
Janiel
Angela
Norma (you are here)
Patti Jo
Suzanne
 
This is what I came up with...

 
The actual project for the challenge is this round gift box (hmm...do you still call it a box when it's round?)  I have filled it with those yummy Mozartkuglen chocolates.
 
 
On top of the gift box, I am featuring this adorable image of Bonny Tilda with her cute little tushies...LOL.  Check out the other equally adorable stamps from the With Love Collection 2013 at Magnolia-licious on-line store.

 
I have also created this shaped easel card to go along with the gift box because it just looked so lonely sitting there just by itself...haa haa.

 
 
This image is of Tilda With a Gift For You and she is part of the Turning Leaves Collection 2012.  She's one of my faves as she's so versatile that I can use her for all kinds of occasions.
 

Magnolia stamps are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious. If you don't see the one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
The images from the latter stamp collections have been coloured by the Magnolia-licious DT gals for the store catalogue so you can get an idea of what they can look like.
Have a look also at the selections of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts. Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase. Cool!
