Winter Wonderland...

Hi sweet friends!! Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by for a visit!! I can't believe it's time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!! It seems like just last week that we had the "pink, blue, & green" challenge!! Oh wait...it WAS just last week!! Whew! I feel better now that I figured that out. I know time flies as we get older, but I really was afraid I'd fallen asleep and lost an entire week!! So...here's the deal...we're having this challenge a week early (Dec. 14th)...and it ends on Jan. 10th! That'll give us all a little extra time to craft AND celebrate the holidays with family and friends!!

This challenge is an "Inspiration Challenge". We have a beautiful photo submitted by Chrissy Le for our inspiration. Here it is...

Be creative and see what comes! I was struck by the serenity and peace of the falling snow...so that's what I went with. Tilda sitting on her sled...with glittery snow and snowflakes here, there, and everywhere!!

Here are a couple of side-views...

And, of course, an "artsy" shot...

Here's what the inside looks like...

And...if you're curious...here's the "recipe" for this little card:

Coarse Glitter (MS) mixed w/Flower Soft (Polar White) for snow

So, that's it for me today...now hop on over to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog HERE and take a peek at the gorgeous projects by my DT sisters...and then start thinking about your own challenge entry! Oops...almost forgot...the oh so generous prize for this challenge is a $25.00 "Magnolia-licious" gift certificate provided by our very own Diana Crick, owner of Magnolia-licious, home of all things Magnolia...including the new, uber darling Magnolia Minis!!! Gotta run...still have about 8 Christmas cards to make so I can send them out before THIS Christmas! hehehe! Take care, stay warm, be safe...and don't forget to hug your loved ones...often!!
