Christmas in July...

Magnolia-licious DT Challenge

Hi Everyone!  I'm back today with a new Magnolia-licous DT Challenge.  This time we were asked to make a 'Christmas in July' project.  I don't know about you, but it's 90 degrees here and the last thing I've been thinking about is Christmas!  LOL!!!  So, this was definitely a challenge!  Also, we could only use the Magnolia 'Mini' images on our project.  I decided to make a tag and use one of my favorite Christmas/Winter images on it.  I hope you like it :-)

The DT has all done a fabulous job with this challenge.  You can see everyone's artwork at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog.  There you will find links to the DT's blogs so you can go checkout the details of the projects.  You'll also find that you too can enter the challenge and win a fantastic prize sponsored by Magnolia-licious.

Christmas in July

On this sweet little gift tag, I used 'Mini Snowy Hug', which I just adore!  It's currently available for you to nab up from the store so you too can make some beautiful Christmas/Winter tags a little early.  I've used this image a lot and I never tire of it.  It's a fairly quick color too even though I used the deep Copic pinks/reds:  R81, 83, 85, and 89.  I shadowed with my N's, using odds up through N7.  The broom got a bit of E50, 33, and 43, with some N's for shadow.  'Snowy' was colored with B0000 and B00, with a little N for shadow.

The dp's are from an old BG paper pad titled Wassail.  The colors are really rich and dark and I just love them!!!  I borrowed this layout from a tag that Mindy made for me for my birthday.  It's one of my favorite things and I will cherish it forever :-)  All of the flowers are from WOC and the sentiment is from Whimsy.

That's it from me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I do hope that you'll leave me a little note to let me know that you stopped by for a visit :-)

Big hugs to you all!
