Give Thanks - Magnolia-licious Fall/Halloween Blog Hop


We're having a Fall/Halloween Blog Hop at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  I hope that you will play along with us.  My DT teammates have fabulous projects for you to see.  If you're already taking part in the blog hop and have come here from Suzi's blog, then you're in the track.  

But just in case you get lost or if you want to start at the beginning,here's the Blog Hop order:

With fall/autumn comes fall harvest, which brings us to Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated on the second Monday in October (fourth Thursday in USA I think), so that's less than a month away...yikes.  (We concentrate on Christmas as soon as Halloween is over...tee hee.) 

So I've made a Thankgiving poster/wall hanging or whatever you want to call it...LOL.

The images were coloured with markers--Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.  The letters were cut out by hand.  I free-downloaded the font Titania Outline from Fonts Addict and enlarge it 500 times. 

Here are close-ups of of the Magnolia cuties that I am featuring:


 - Autumn Tilda With Broom from the Turning Leaves Collection 2012
- Tilda With Two Rosettes from the Special Moments Collection 2013

- Tilda With Dot Bow from the With Love Collection 2013
- Goosebump Tilda from the Turning Leaves Collection 2012

- Tilda With Heart Socks from the With Love Collection 2013

- Princess Pea Tilda from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
- Tilda With Peanut (the Mouse) from the Turning Leaves Collection 2012

Some of these stamps are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  The store carries a large selection of Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies and other crafting tools.

A reminder that there is a weekly draw for a Surprise Package Prize just for commenting.  All the comments made on the Blog Hop, Tuesday Challenge and "W"ednesday postings on all the DT gals' blogs and the Challenge Blog itself will be entered into the draw.

Ingrid Mason said...

Wow Norma, I'm in love ..... with those wonderful images. Your colouring and placement of them on your wall hanging is brilliant. I'm thinking it must have taken ages to select your little people, never mind all the time colouring them so perfectly. And then there's your hand cutting of your letters - so precise that I envy your skill. The entire wall hanging is amazing. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
