This year Reo and Charrissa went to Charrissa's family Thanksgiving and Dani and Jon went to Jon's family so we did our Thanksgiving on Friday. Kiah had her first mashed potatoes. We are so blessed with this family. Today as we celebrate Thanksgiving I am so thankful for this wonderful family that God has given me. These two beautiful granddaughters are such a joy!!!! And next year at this time there will be 4 grandchildren!!! How amazing is God!!!

wishing you a happy holiday season Magnolia

Finally got a chance to color this image of a Magnolia house. The inside of the card says "from our home to yours". The sentiment is from my CTMH set. The cardstock is also from CTMH. The ribbon is this awesome pack I got from Walmart. I again embossed with the snowflakes folder with my cuttlebug. Colored in with my copics.
So count the addictions....... copics, magnolia stamps, cuttlebug folders, ribbon............ too many!!!!

My Kiah Baby

I love this picture of Kiah with her big blue eyes. When Peighton was learning to say Baby Kiah, she always said, "my Kiah my Baby". Right now every one of her babies are named Kiah. And she always tells everyone about her friend Kiah. Her other friends are "Lexi and Danka". She really misses her cousins since they moved to California!!!

Another Magnolia Christmas card.

Another Christmas card with this Magnolia image. I got this tree from the Magnolia-licious website. They have awesome customer service. Colored it with my copics. the sentiment and cardstock is from CTMH. I also used my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I have learned a couple of diff ways to do the shading on these images. Thanks for taking a look.

OK, I am addicted!! My new addiction is these Magnolia images.
This Christmas Card uses all CTMH papers. The sentiment is CTMH and the inside says............."Warm your heart all year long..."
I used both Tria and Copic markers to color her. The background is embossed with my cuttlebug and the snowflake embossing folder.
The ribbon is from Wallys. Can't wait to receive my copics I ordered so I can play a little more with the blending!!

My first Magnolia card

This may be my first but it won't be my last!!!
I was so excited to find a US supplier of these adorable stamps. I think part of the reason I love them so much is my Swedish heritage. The background stamp that I ordered was out of stock so I had to make do. I found this little cottage on my cricut cartridge, Christmas cheer. Hard to tell, but the dots on the tree are white and red and glittery and I used a gold stickles for the top of the tree. I also used my few copics for this image. Really am hoping to get a few more soon. The website for ordering is on the side of my blog, magnolia-licious. A great site to order from with great customer service.

My little house mouse

Kiah was a little mouse on Halloween. My onsight friends think she resembles a housemouse stamp!! What do you think? She is so adorable, but not sure she liked being in the costume!
I guess I will call Peighton the fairybella. They were adorable!!!
