Thanks to my BFF's everywhere and It's a Magnolia Christmas!

This week's challenge at Shirleys2girls is all about being "thankful" for whatever makes you happy in your life!
And note there are little leaves in the paper.
(the second requirement of the card challenge!) 
I used the S2G stamps from "BFF Mazie" and the chipboard peace sign is Little Yellow Bicycle. To provide the background paper, I went for the DCWV, Citrus.
Also, I had so much fun with this Magnolia image and my Copics! This challenge over at Just Magnolia is "White and One Other". I chose blue because I wanted to work outside my comfort zone and Scrap Creations is having a "Blue For You" challenge and Totally Paper Crafts is all about "Non-Traditional" colors for Christmas ! Normally, I would have automatically reached for the reds for Christmas. I like her in blue, and the little striped socks are always adorable!
The paper I used was the SEI "Glitzmas" (I'm really getting a lot of use out of this line!). I used their sparkly white cardstock AGAIN, and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflake embossing folder. She appears to be sitting on the ribbon! Which worked out wonderfully for the challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbons this week!
I'm having waaaay too much fun for someone who needs to be unpacking yet more moving boxes!
This card is also entered in a newly found blogsite for me, and with a new store, Karber Christmas Challenge! They have the cutest images, which I'm hoping to win some! Check out their stuff here http://karberchristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/p/shop-here.html
Posted on Digital Tuesday Challenge for their "let it snow" challenge.
AND last, but definately not least, the Incy Wincy Designs Challenge! (BLUE) This is the best blog idea ever! Profits from their store sales go to charity! How cool is that?  I intend to visit this blog often!
