Another Santa Card!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 10:13 AM 2 comments
Hello all my wonderful blog readers! I have another card for you, using the Cool Santa and the mini Tilda peeking around. Again I used traditional Holiday colors, aren't you proud!! :P

All of us on the Magnolia-licious design team decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange. Those are so much fun! My Secret Santa Sister was Cheryl! She made me the cutest snowflake ornaments with different Tildas on them and they are all PINK so they match my tree beautifully! Cheryl you have to let me know where you got the chipboard I need to have a tree full of those ornaments next year! I also got some velvet flowers and little sparkly Jolee flowers. I've used both on my card today. I also got Prima swirlys which I love to use. I believe there were a few more candies too I wonder where those went :) LOL

Here's a photo of all my goodies. I took it with my phone right when I got it so the quality isn't so good, and I didn't think to take another photo.


Thanks so much Cheryl, I'm so lucky.. I love all my goodies!!!
Almost Christmas... are you all ready?! I am!!!!!

Simple Christmas Cards.

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 10:51 AM 3 comments
Hello friends out in blogging land! The other day I got my mini Magnolia's from Magnolia-licious, soon as I seen them I visioned a simple card using only one other color. I haven't made such a simple card in a long time. I wanted to show you all how you can make simple Christmas cards using these adorable Mini Magnolia stamps. They are so tiny and super cute! They really don't take long to color. These cards took me about 40 min each to make. I think the layout is really easy and perfect if you are making a lot of cards. I just had to mask those little trees behind the Snowman. I just love masking and it honestly wasn't as bad as I thought cutting out that little image. Both of these images are on 2x2 inch white xpress it card stock, to give you an idea how small the images really are.

Don't forget Magnolia is doing a give a way all month long on the new Magnolia Blog. All you have to do is comment on the Design Team Member's blog. Each day is a new Designer. My day is December 15th!

Have a wonderful day!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 8:48 AM 5 comments
Just a reminder my day is December 15th for the Magnolia Advent Calendar!

I made this card for a special person in my life, my 91 year old great-grandmother, Nana. We lost our papa, her husband of 74 years. He died the Monday before Thanksgiving. She adores my cards and her face brightens up everytime I give her one. She keeps them on the table next to the chair she sits in all day. I hope I can bring a smile to her face. She's just lost without papa. :( At the funeral I asked her what color Christmas card she wanted she said an Orchid color. She's so elegant! I love her dearly. I need to treasure every moment with her!
