Magnolia Tilda's Tinsel in a Tangle Projects!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Sunday to each of you!

This past Thursday was our Thanksgiving here in the states. If you celebrated Turkey Day, I hope it was wonderful - filled with happy, loving voices, wonderful aromas of baking turkey, and desserts that were over the moon! For those of you who are not in the USA, do you have a day of thanks, too? I'd love to hear about it!

We have a new challenge beginning today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Our theme is

Need a Little Christmas!

We would love for you to create a card with a Christmas theme! You may use any stamp that is carried at the Magnolia-licious Store for your design!

I'm still trying to get the hang of making gorgeous gift bags. I haven't found my niche yet. I do keep trying, though, LOL. So, today, I'm sharing a project as well as a gift bag in which to give the project. Both will be on sale in my Etsy Shop. Here are the images and brief descriptions:

This little treasure consists of three distressed wooden blocks with painted alphas. I added two adorable Magnolia Stamps from the Aspen Holidays Collection - Sitting Cozy Edwin and Sitting Cozy Tilda. The project was finished off with some Magnolia greenery (winter ferns, maybe?), some wide grosgrain ribbon, and "tangled" lights. It took a while for this part of the project, but it turned out so sweetly, I think.

Now for the gift bag, LOL. OK, I think this is the second one I've ever made. Don't laugh. Practice makes perfect, right?

I wish you could see the snow detail. There are lots of snow layers with each layer's edge glittery. I added some white snowflake embellishments, some punched greenery to tuck into the snow banks, and our little stamp of Me and My Snowman. The sparkle just isn't showing at all :o( . I finished the bag topper with some gathered lace around the perimeter, a snowflake tag, Merry Christmas ribbon, lacy ribbon, and a candy cane charm.

You know that Candy is giving one lucky Challenge participant a $20 gift certificate to the Magnolia-licous Store, right? If you want to take a chance on winning, then please join the challenge!
