Another Magnolia Christmas Card

This time of year, it sure feels like the crunch is on, and I don't know about you, but I don't ever feel like there is enough time to get everything done that I want to. I am so behind on my Christmas cards this year, that I'm pretty sure I am going to keep making them into Jan. and Feb., so I am ready for next year. lol...
This card is made with another fabulous Magnolia image. I just love all magnolia images, they are absolutely the best. I used alot of ink for distressing, and I got the snowflake from my LSS and the smaller snowflake is a punch from Martha Stewart.

I'm not sure if I will be posting again before Christmas. I suppose if I get another card done, then maybe, but I have my husband's christmas party on Monday, and then Wednesday is already Christmas Eve. We are heading down to our parents houses on Thursday and won't be home till Sunday night.

Just in case I am not back before Christmas, I wish everyone of you, a Very Merry Christmas, and I hope you all get to spend time with your loved ones!!

Magnolia Christmas

Hi everyone,

I am just on my way to work this morning, but wanted to leave you with another one of my holiday cards.
This card was made with 3 different Magnolia images, the tilda, the bench and the holly. Aren't they awesome. I colored them using my copics and prismas. Thanks for the hints Mom!! I was having trouble with my copics, and she suggested sometimes that I could go over them with my prismas...and it works great!!

Well, I have to get off to work, I will talk to you all soon. Today is my first day back in the Admin. office....I can't be late!!!

Season's Greetings to you and yours!! And thanks for the amazing comments and wonderful christmas cards that I am starting to receive!!!
