Just ONE More Christmas!

Happy Friday...it's finally here! Yay!  Now that the temperatures are back up and it's not raining, I'm going to try to enjoy the out doors this weekend!

I guess I was still in the mood for Christmas, so I thought I'd share just one more with you until the times gets closer anyway...I promise I will hold off on it for a while just in case you are growing tired of it! :0)
I pulled out my one and only Christmas Magnolia that I own and had a play...
I think she's so adorable!  This Magnolia is called "Unwrapped" which actually doesn't necessarily need to be for Christmas, but I love coloring her socks with the red and green colors! :0)
I also love adding some bling and sparkle to my Christmas designs as well, so I punched out some snowflakes with my glimmer paper and then put some rhinestones in the middle of each.  I also added some glitter around the edge of the circle.  There is also a tiny bit of shimmer in her hair ribbon and ribbon on the ground as I used my red glitter pen to color them.  (It's hard to tell unless you're viewing it IRL.)

Here are the challenges that I'd like to enter this creation for:
Totally Tilda - Christmas Bingo! :  2 lines - across middle and down middle (see below):

Magnolia-licious - anything goes
Simply Magnolia - anything goes
Magnolia Down Under - Your Favorite Things:  lace, seam binding ribbon, Copics, glitter, rhinestones, die cuts, punches... (oh my!)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday (SSW217) - sketch (see below):

Simon Says - anything goes
The Crafter's Cafe - anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I wish you all a really fabulous weekend!

HUGS & SMILES
