Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge

Welcome back for another Magnolia-licious challenge!  This week we want to see you use your

I thought about going easy and just using the buttons as a couple of embellishments but when I decided to make my first Christmas card of the year, WELL!!!  This is what happened!  Ok I may have gone overboard with them but you don't have to.  Buttons anywhere and however many on your project will do.

Isn't this image just the cutest?!  Christmas Tilda w/Cat and they're part of a small "Little Christmas" collection expected in stock again Oct. 2nd from Magnolia-licious.

If you need any inspiration you can find LOTS at the Magnolia-licious challenge blog.  Also, Diana is giving away a "Surprise Gift" as a random prize,  RANDOM so you have as good of a chance as any others.  I love that!!

Annnnnd Diana has a sale going on and all mini sentiments are $2.99 so a great way to build up your mini-sentiment collection.  Or maybe think of it as stocking stuffers - for yourself!  LOL!!
