Christmas Wishes

Good morning and welcome to the first Magnolia Licious Christmas All Year Long BlogHop of 2011. This group was created for Magnolia lovers who want to get a jump on the Christmas season by creating a Christmas card each month. I hope that we will inspire you to do the same. If you have arrived here from Barb's blog then you are right on track. If not, be sure to hop back to the beginning because you don't want to miss a thing.

For my card I have chosen to work with Heartbreaker Edwin. He does not appear to be in stock at the moment but I am sure that Diana will have him back in the store soon. I will admit that I had actually coloured Edwin before Christmas and had not gotten around to putting him on a card but when I found these papers in the pile on my desk, I knew that I had to use him.

I will admit that I had actually coloured Edwin before Christmas and had not gotten around to putting him on a card but I knew that I had to use him when I found these Basic Grey papers in the pile on my desk. As I love adding some sparkle to my Christmas cards, I have also used some glitter paper from Best Creations that has been punched out using some of my wintry Martha Stewart Punches. I just love the icy feel of this card.

Thank you so much for dropping by, I hope you will enjoy the hop. Now continue on and hop over to Corrine who I am sure will have something great to share with you.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

This is so pretty; just the right touch of gentle and bling! The image is great (and I think he's glad he's found a place to look handsome now). This really came together beautifully! I'm trying to keep up with the Christmas card challenges as well so that I'm ready come Christmas 2011!
