Midweek Magnolia Blog Hop

The Midweek Magnolia girls have a blog hop for you today with gorgeous creations and some great candy and prizes along the way. You should have hopped here from the vary talented Beth's blog, if not you might want to pop on over to the Midweek Magnolia challenge and start at the top, you won’t want to miss a thing.

We are sponsored by the wonderful Magnolia Sweden who will offer an awesome prize to the lucky Challenge winner and another prize from 7 Kids College Fund for the winner who visits all the DT blogs and leaves a comment, along with a variety of candies at the DT blogs too. How good is that!!! So pop on over to Midweek Magnolias and find the links to the rest of the DT and hop along down the line  for a chance to win some terrific prizes.  Don’t forget to leave a comment on each of the DT blogs while you are there.

I've created a Christmas Snow Globe to share with you all. The pattern for this can be purchased here from Sandra's Scrapshop if you would like to make one for yourself. 

I've used the sweet 'Jingle Bell Rudolph' image from Magnolia which I stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured my image with the following colours: E35, E53, E51, W5, W3, W1, W00, R37, R35, R32, YR24, YR23 & Y15. 

I have then fussy cut my image and created a scene using the Spruce Die from Magnolia Doohickey. Inside the globe I have added some glitter balls to shake around. My papers are from Kaisercrafts 6" Paper Pad called Christmas Collections. 

I've cut my "Merry Christmas' sentiment in gold glitter cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. To finish off I have added some Poinsettia die cuts, another Spruce die cut and a bow. 

Here's a close up of my image. 

For a chance to win my candy, don’t forget to leave a comment, The candy I'm offering to one lucky winner will be a voucher to either 7 Kids College Fund (US), The Ribbon Girl (UK/Europe) or Craftonline (Australia) determined by your location. 

The next blog along your way is the lovely Kirsty-Anne and I’m sure that she has something fabulous to share with you. Good luck and have a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2017.
