Brrrr....

Welcome to another Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop...and yes it is only March 25th. This is a wonderful to stock up on your holiday cards and gifts. It get the inspiration flowing. We have a very wet seven day forecast here in the Pacific Northwest and next week is spring break. What a perfect time to take advantage of getting things done. I am taking a few days off of work next week to take care of some things for Nic while he is out of school. I am also in desperate need of a foil & can't wait for Tuesday. I shouldn't put this off for so long...it makes me a little crazy.

On to the hop....I experimented with my copics to try and make her fluff white. You will have to tell me how I did. It was fun trying something new. I created a basic gift card holder for you today. This could be wrapped up in a box or added to a stocking.
This cute Maggie is holding a card from my favorite coffee spot. Bring on the grandee, skinny vanilla, 190 degree no foam latte. I drink those all the time, even in the summer. Cold coffee just isn't my thing...but I love my hot coffee...YUMMO!!!
I turned the dp inside out so I wouldn't detract from my image and add something special inside (besides the gift, and isn't that what they really want). I made a few of these several years ago and my mom recycled them this past Christmas. I thought that was a wonderful idea. She said they were so cute she didn't want to throw them away. Please visit our Magnolia-licious Christmas blog. They have a great slide show of all the goodies along with links to the store where you can shop till you drop.

Please hop on over to visit Marcia and her wonderful creation. I thank you for stopping by and hope you enjoy the last weekend in March. I just can't believe we are almost to Easter...I have some bunnies almost ready to post. Hippity Hoppity....Easter's on its way!
