Love is in the Air with Sweet Christmas Tilda

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Tuesday to each of you! Are you keeping warm? I love Winter so much that I hate to see it pass. I love the blue, blue sky and the lighting the sun gives to the mountains. In the summer, the colors tend to get washed out!

Magnolia-licious is now taking pre orders for Magnolia's newest collection, Lovely Duo! If you haven't seen it yet, visit Diana's shop where they are posted. They are so adorable and come with a sentiment. I have some favorites, almost all of them! Preorder them now so you don't miss out!

Today begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! The title for our new challenge is ~

Love is in the Air!

Isn't that a great challenge idea? You could do so much with it! I chose to stay with a Winter theme - after all, love does keep one warm, right? Here is my inspiration card:

I wish you could see the sparkle on this card! I used silver metallic thread for the stitching and shaved ice on the Magnolia Doohickey Snowy Forest tree die. My stamp is Sweet Christmas Tilda from 2011's Sweet Christmas Collection. The paper used comes from a paper pad entitled "Frozen." You can find this gorgeous paper HERE. Here are some additional shots:

The tag used in the pocket is the Magnolia So Wrapped Snowflake Doohickey Tag Die. I love that set of dies. They are so versatile!

The die cuts are part of the Memory Box Frostyville line. I added some Crystal Stickles to them for additional sparkle.

I hope you found some inspiration in my design and that you will join the new challenge! We'd love to see your creations! Don't forget that there is a special somethin' somethin' for one lucky commentor!

I am so glad that you stopped by. I hope you will return again very soon!
