Magnolia Advent Calendar - Day 21



Good morning sunshines!!

Today is day 21... and that means that it's MY turn in this Magnolia Advent Calendar Blog Hop! Yessss!!!

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then click -->here<-- so you can see what's all about and have a chance to win a fabulous prize from our wonderful sponsor Magnolia :-)

But first, here's what I did for this blog hop...



It's a gift bag! And I tried to keep it simple, as I'm going to make a couple of these cuties to give to some relatives during the Holidays ;-)

I can't remember the papers that I used, but I colored Tilda with Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany, Scattered Straw). I also used Stickles "Star Dust" and "Clear Rock Candy". The doily is from Spellbinders, the border die is from Magnolia, and the sentiment is from Stamping Up.

Now, in order to win something, all you have to do is leave a message under this post... and remember that you only have 24 hrs. to leave a message in this blog. Tomorrow the drawing will be in another blog... so stick around :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Gift Bag.. And Tilda is Adorable.. Looks like she as dressed up for Christmas already.

Carola said...

For me your gift bag is not at all simple, I think it is very beautiful and with the design paper, the flowers and the punched flourishes it has just enough embellishments. And the Tilda is very pretty, too.

Kind regards
Carola
