'A Little Something' Gift Tag - Magnolia-licious November Blog Hop


It's blog hop time at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog!  This is our last one of the year--taking a break in December.  The two Magnolia-licous teams are joining forces for this blog hop...woo-hoo!

If you're already doing the blog hop and came here from Eulanda's blog, then you're on the right track.  But if not, you may want to start at the beginning.  There's a challenge blog hop as well as a special contest about counting candy canes.  Find out more details about the blog hop and the contest, how you can enter either or both and the prizes, at the Magnolia-licious Highlites, HERE.

Here is the list of our participating DT gals in blog hop order:
Eulanda Silvey
Norma (your are here!)
The theme for the blog hop challenge is 'Interactive Holiday Tags'.  What I've created is this gift tag!

The interactive part is the paper circle/wheel on which I've written the message 'A little something  Just for You * Happy Christmas'.  Portions of the message appear within the window opening as you spin the wheel--so I guess you'd call this a spinner gift tag?

This adorable Magnolia image that I am featuring is called Tilda With Two Little Gifts.  She is from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012 and is available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.

Check out the rest of the collection and Magnolia's latest Nativity Collection 2012--they're oh so cute!You will see the sample images that have been coloured by the DT gals--rather than just the black stamped images with a watermark on top of it. Click HERE and HERE.
Other stamps, both full-size and mini, are also available from Magnolia-licious. If you don't see the stamp that you want there, just ask Diana and maybe she can bring it in for you.
Not to be missed are the variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.  Diana gives excellent service, discounted prices and you also earn in-store credit for every order. 

I've coloured the Tilda image with markers--my collection of Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers.  The shape of the tag is from a Spellbinders Label Twenty-Eight die.  The trees were created using Dee's Distintively Christmas Stacker Tree dies.  Don't know if you can tell or not, but I've covered the trees and the snowflakes with micro-fine glitter.
