Cold Hands Warm Heart - Magnolia-Licious Winter Photo Inspiration

Hope you are all fine and well! I have been hit by a nasty bug and have been laid up for almost a week and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
But a little bit of Tilda magic gave me a much needed smile and I hope it does for you too!
Today we are challenged at The Magnolia-Licious Challenge by a wonderful Winter photo and I took the soft blues and pinks of the winter sky and the water made me think of skating so I decided to use the gorgeous Winter Skates Tilda to tie it together. This little cutie was a special stamp last year and I'm so glad to see that Diana has her in stock, you really must grab her while you can, she is a must have.
Also while you are over in the store check out the Love Collection for those upcoming Valentines you know you must create. And now that Diana is back from CHA she has brought news of some fabulous new designs coming to the store so be sure to keep your eyes open for news.
And finally if you are a die cut addict like me then you must check out the latest designs from Memory Box, gosh I can hear my wallet moaning just at the mention!
