Magnolia-liscious Christmas Blog Hop


 Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely weekend. Today I'm part of a fantastic Magnolia-liscious Christmas Blog Hop and if you arrived here from Ruby's fabulous blog then you're in the right place but you can always go back to the Magnolia-licious blog for all the information.

Wonderful prizes!
By calling in at all the of the blogs on the hop you can gather all the letters and clues to make up a phrase. One randomly chosen winner from those who correctly get the phrase will receive a fantastic suprise gift package to the value of  $50.

There is another way to win and for all of December until the 31st you can enter a Christmas/winter themed project to the challenge blog inlinkz. There are two great surprise gift packages to be won, $100 to the first place winner chosen by Diana and $50 to the runner up which will be randomly chosen from the entries.
 


I've made a little gift bag as my Christmas project for the hop cut using my Sizzix die from white card. Before putting the bag together with Scor-Tape I sponged on the snowflake design through a Crafters Workshop stencil with some Shabby Shutters distress ink and punched a hole through the top of the bag for the gingham ribbon. I coloured the absolutely gorgeous Penny Black stamp from the Mimis Winter Friends transpartent stamp set with distress and watercolour markers and a little bit of pencil then cut it out to mount on the bag. I've finished off with stickles glitter glue, gems, a die cut and glittered snowflake and a chit chat sticker. This makes the perfect gift bag for a small Christmas present and can be hung on the lower branches of the Christmas tree, I think anyone would be delighted to receive a gift packaged with these Penny Black cuties.

Now it's time to send you on to Cabio's fantastic blog and you need to take the following letters with you to help with your collection for the phrase.

N, y
Have fun!
