Magnolia mini gift set

Hello happy blogger buddies,
I hope everyone's weekends were terrific.
Any Black Friday shoppers have a tail to tell?
Not me, I like to sleep in!!
And when I wake up at 12 noon (haha, I wish!!),
I like to craft!!

I was lucky enough to get a couple of fun packs
in the mail this Wednesday,
my dear blogger buddy Sue sent me a pile of
Magnolia Christmas images to play with,
as I am still anxiously awaiting mine
and Kellie sent the Magnolia Down Under gang
a lovely assortment of treasures to tinker with,
and I couldn't resist putting something together.

I sure do enjoy all of the foilage involved!!
I now own enough punches to place these roses just so...

I've made a card and coordinating gift box.
The box is a container to something or other
that I refurbished into a winter container of sorts.

More bloom action for ya...

And the other side of the box.
Such a fun and efficient use of material,
I'll stuff it with treats when it is time to ship it.

I've used a Magnolia stamped image from Sue called
Tilda as Christmas Angel,
the DP is Magnolia So Jolly papers,
find them in Kellie's shop here.
I've coloured in distress ink and there is a lot
of Stickles and highlighter pen used.
The punches are Martha Stewart,
I've distressed items in Weather Wood,
the charm is by Jolees and that gorgeous ribbon
is from Kellies shop, you can find it here.

I'm going to pop this in a few challenges:
PaperTake Weekly has a Christmas challenge happening,
Everybody Art has a Christmas theme and
Charisma Cardz has a Christmas theme also.

Thanks for stopping by and spending time with me today.
Have a wonderful week!!

Oh WOW Stephanne, this is absolutely beautiful! So pretty and "soft", sweet really. I love the embellishments, such perfect details. The little dangling star and how it matches the stars in the stamp - PERFECT! Also really like the back ground paper with the writing and the lace too!

Wow, Stephanne, those are so gorgeous!! Where did you get the flowers, I would love the details (brand and / or where to buy them!). You do such beautiful work. I really want those punches, I am trying to find them locally, otherwise I know what I'm asking my parents for, for Christmas lol... They might have more luck finding them where they are.
