Another Santa Card!

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!!!!!
