Simply Magnolia (DT) - Christmas

Happy Sunday and welcome to another challenge at the Simply Magnolia blog.  So nice to have you with us again...  Like most of the other challenge blogs out there, we're also having a Christmas theme, so this is your opportunity to make that one last Christmas card, if you haven't done so already.

Our wonderful sponsor is Jacobi and if this doesn't whet the appetite, then I don't know what will...  Please pay them a visit for all your crafty needs.

I received this gorgeous little Sweet Christmas Tilda in the post, my first order from the Magnolia-licious Online Store and guess what, the sweet Diana Crick put in a mini Holding Tilda as a gift.  Now ain't that sweet?  Thanks so much Diana.  My parcel arrived safely in SA!

Do you like the DP I've used.... guess what?  It's my first piece of Magnolia Design Paper (Mini Sweet Christmas Dreams paper pack), also a purchase from the Magnolia-licious Online Store.  I tell you, I was so nervous to use it as it's so pretty, I just want to hang onto it for ever!  My American friends must realise that it's travelled a faaaar way to get to me, so I'm not that keen to part with it just yet!  But, as I have no other Christmas paper, I just had to give in.  So pleased that I did.  Love it!

Thanks for popping by. Hope your Sunday is a blessed and relaxed one. I have 1 more week and then I am officially on leave (are you tired of hearing this??? hehe).  hugs Sharon x
