Christmas Wishes - Magnolia-licious 'Boys or Guys'


The theme of our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge is 'Boys or Guys'.  We're midway into the challenge and it's Team B's turn to post our DT cards/projects to inspire you to join in the fun.  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge to get the details on the challenge.  While you're there, check out the fabulous cards/projects that my DT teammates have created.

For my DT card, I've finally made my first Christmas card of the year, starting off this year's Christmas card collection.

I'm really late with this first one!  I should be doing better and averaging more Christmas cards per month or...oh I know I'll be pulling my hair out around Christmas time...arrgghh.

This adorable Edwin that I am featuring has become my favorite Edwin...at least for now, hee hee.

- Christmas Eve Edwin from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013

This Edwin stamp is available at Magnolia-licious on-line store, where you can also find other equally adorable Magnolia stamps--both full size and mini.  And 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 StampsWild Rose StudiosPenny Black and Candibeans.  Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!

This is how I've decorated the inside of my card.

That little fir tree I've coloured is called
- Peaceful Christmas Tree from Magnolia's Winter Wonderland Collection 2013
