Merry Christmas - Magnolia Advent Calendar Shutter 25



Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and I wish you a peaceful and happy time with family and friends.

It's my turn to open the shutter for day 25 of the Magnolia Advent Calendar and I've created my version of the Nativity by creating a chipboard panel covered with watercolour paper for my scene which is coloured with distress ink and watercolour markers with my doodled scene around and in the background.

To be in with the chance of winning a big Christmas gift from Magnolia all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner in the next few days.

I'll leave you with one of my favourite Christmas songs and hope you have a perfect day :).

By the way, if possible can you pass a message on to whoever does these shutter things? Most of them do not work for Mac/Firefox or Safari. I was very unhappy that I couldn't post to most of these. Thank you for any help.
