Magnolia-licious Hearth and Home Challenge and Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you're here! If you are hopping along the Magnolia-licious team's monthly Blog Hop and you stopped here after visiting the talented Patti Jo then you are doing great! If you would like to start at the beginning you can visit the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog for the order. Our task (and yours, I hope!) is to make something for the HOME! I don't know about you, but sometimes when I see the challenge I think,"I have no idea what to make!" I've even considered bowing out for a challenge here and there! (Have never done it!) That is what happened with this challenge and then I saw THIS on Splitcoast Stampers!
My box came together very quickly using Cherry Cobbler and SU Christmas designer papers.
There are so many delicious Christmas stamps at Magnolia-licious and I love this one! She is number 3069, REINDEER TILDA.
Another challenge I took on was coloring a large area in RED copics! Reds sure aren't easy, are they? You see the result. I did my best, but sort of wish I'd tried Prismas to even the color a bit.

Then I had a tough time with photos 'cuz it's dark and I was trying to photograph RED!! I took a lot!


In the end, I LOVED naking this and I think it will find a place in our home this holiday season! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will travel on to my Fabulous Friend, Sharon! She will certainly have something awesome!


I used R21, R22, R29 and R59 for my reds!

Thanks for coming by! I will choose a winner from my comments for a little surprise of a couple of Magnolia stamps and a card made by me. I'll mail anywhere and Random.org will choose a winner on Thursday at 9:00 pm Eastern time.
Thanks again, Enjoy your day!!
Cheryl

Oh, this is so adorable, what a cute idea, to make a little planter! You did a great job with the red. I love little reindeer Tilda, but then again, she is so easy to love. Hugs, Rea

Diana Crick said...

Well I would say you mastered coloring with RED, the lightness and darker shades you achieved bring her to life. Don't you just love her antlers..so darling. I think this would make a lovely centerpiece or on the mantle with a little tealight near by. Cute the way she is perched on the ribbon, clever!
Beautiful work Cheryl.
hugs, Diana

I love your festive winter foliage display and I think you did a magnificent job on the colouring. I find reds really hard too but any difficulty you had is certainly not apparent! It's berry lovely! off to finish the hop now and if I get time tomorrow, I have an idea for a entry to the challenge too! Warmest wishes, Lesley
