Magnolia-licious March Christmas Blog Hop

Good Morning and Welcome to my stop on the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be participating this month! This hop will happen the 25th of every month and I'm sure you'll find lots of gorgeous samples as you make your way from blog to blog!

If you've arrived here from Jessica'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 Tilda with the Violin. This was a wonderful surprise gift from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store when I placed my last order. I taught vocal music for 14 years with the Millard Public Schools in Omaha Nebraska, and so this little musician was a special treat!

I've chosen some Basic Grey paper from the "Wassail" collection for my card this month. (I had just enough scraps left from previous projects!) The card stock is Stampin' Up Always Artichoke and it was a perfect match to the Basic Grey patterned paper.

I've added a little Doodlebug Sugar coated glitter to her wings for a little Christmas sparkle!

The sentiment is from the SU set named "Scenic Season". All the paper is sponged with a little SU Creamy Caramel ink.

Tilda is 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,
