Magnolia-licious DT - Winter Blog Hop

Good Morning and a warm welcome to our 
Winter Blog Hop over at 

If you have come to me from the lovely Becky then you are on the right track.  

If not then please pop back to the main blog post where you can start from the beginning!!  I don't want you to miss out on seeing all the amazing creations the DT have conjured up for you or for you to miss out on the chance of a $50.00 gift certificate!!!

I've made a sweet picnic style basket, decorated with some pretty Christmas papers and of course the sweet Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda from the new Magnolia Waiting for Christmas 2014 collection, she has been coloured using ShinHanArt pens and Derwent soft pencils for shading.  I've used Imagination Crafts fine art glitter on her dress.

I've decorated the back of the basket with some lace, pearls and those delicious poinsettia dies from Magnolias Vol 2 club kit.
My papers are all from My Minds Eye Vintage Christmas and Lost & Found 2 Christmas. Both lids have magnetic closures to keep the contents safe. 

Would you like to be in with the chance to win one of 2 $50.00 gift voucher for Magnolia-licious Store then it's easy peasy!!!  All you need to do is join in the Scavenger hunt and collect the numbers as you visit each Design Team Member, I wonder what my number could be!!!! 


Once you've collected them total them up and email our lovely 
Cathy-Lee with your answer.  You will find her email address over on the main Magnolia-licious post  

The other way to ensure you are with a chance of winning the other $50.00 Gift Voucher is to enter our challenge by making a Winter Project, now how easy is that!!!!
