Magnolia-licious February Christmas Blog Hop


Good Morning and Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be participating this month! This hop will happen the 25th of every month.
If you've arrived here from Jenn's blog, you're in the right place. If you would like to start at the beginning of our hop, please begin with Julie Glasgow.
For my card today I'm using Santa's Helper and the Old Bench. I purchased these beautiful stamps from the Magnolia-licious store where you'll find great service and great prices.

The card stock, patterned paper and ribbon are from my Stampin' Up stash. I had saved a package of my favorite retired Parisian Breeze designer paper and used it for my Christmas card this month. I found some Dew Drops and added those to the center of the flowers and around my little Edwin. I've distressed the edges of the dark blue card stock and then went to my sewing machine and stitched around the chocolate paper. The images are colored with Copic markers.

You're next stop on the February Christmas hop is Kathy!
Enjoy your visits and thanks so much for hopping by,
Julie
