12 Tildas of Christmas 2012! (Part One)

Hi bloggers, happy Holidays to you and yours! It is officially December! I can barely believe it as I type it! I hope you are having a magnificent day, whatever you find yourself doing!

I'm pleased to re-introduce you (or introduce you) to a very popular Christmas series I started a couple years ago that is BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Yes, I am talking about the 12 Tilda's of Christmas! A fun series to bring you some serious cuteness during the holidays. Over the next 4 Saturdays in the month, I will be showing you 12 different cards featuring that loveable character from Magnolia stamps!

To kick things off, I am thrilled to feature 3 stunning cards from my sweet friend and Simon Says Stamp Design Team Member, Mandy Stacey.  If you haven't already, be sure to bookmark her blog. She's an amazing artist, and I'm inspired by her daily! Below each card you will find similar ingredients to make your own version if you would like to!











Thanks for reading! Be sure to check our blog next Saturday for the second installment! In the meantime, did you know that there are TWO new holiday collections from Magnolia this year? Christmas Story & Nativity are both fantastic collections!

Celebrate this feature with us!! Beginning today and ending at 11:59 PM EST STD time on December 25th, 2012 we invite you to enter code 12TILDA to take 20% off all Magnolia purchases. Please note that this code is case sensitive.

Feeling nostalgic? Check out past 12 Tilda's of Christmas, HERE.

Blog Candy Alert! Please join our following and comment on this blog for a special SURPRISE parcel (I promise, it'll be good! ;)) The winner will be announced soon, good luck!
