Christmas Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it is already November?  Well today Magnolia-Licious is celebrating our traditional Holiday Blog Hop with 2 chances to win a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-Licious. Instructions and details are at the end of the post.

If you arrived here from Julie's blog then your are on the right track. If you need to start at the beginning all you have to do is go back to the Magnolia-Licious Challenge Blog and the post line up is available there.

Here is my main photo of my project. When my parents were on vacation here in September my dad was intrigue with my project. Especially the roof. So I asked him if he wanted to help with the roof. We had such a great time until I ran out of the paper. But he made sure I had a pattern for the roof that was unfinished. We kept saying it was going to be covered with a tarp.....

I chose Prima Victorian paper to create my project. The magnolia images were colored with Copic Markers and paper pieced. I used the following images Pixie Tilda, Tilda with Mittens, Snowy Tilda, Tilda with Tag Gifts, Sitting Tilda and Jasper the cat. If you look at one of my closer photos of the cat he actually has a bell around his neck. I used a few die cuts Magnolia Doo Hickeys Slender firs and Marianne fence, birdhouse and bird die. I used the Tim Holtz washi tape to frame the windows and to cover the bottom portion of my project. Below are close ups of other sides of the house.

OK, now for the fun HOP part…you have 2 chances to win a $20 Gift Certificate from the Magnolia-liciousstore.

1  Each member from the design team has published a hidden Santas that you must collect and add the sum from the total DT blogs for a chance to win. Just email me at cathylee.co@gmail.com with the sum total and you will be entered in the random draw of correct responses I receive.
