You Are So Special


Woo-hoo, my stamps from the new Magnolia's latest collection, the Turning Leaves Collection 2012, came in the mail and I couldn't wait to start stamping and colouring.  Here's a card that I just finished.

I just luvvvv...autumn colours, don't you? This as you can see is a side-step card.

I find this Tilda image oh-so-adorable.  She is called Autumn Tilda With Broom.  The 'you are so special' sentiment is also from Magnolia and it is from the--what else?--You Are So Special collection 2011.  
I have used my Letraset Promakers and Trias, and a few Shin-Han Touch markers to do the colouring.  

This and other Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini-size are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store. Check out the selection of cutting dies available there too--from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn--prices are discounted and as a bonus you earn 2% store credit to be used on future purchases!

This is what the card looks like when laid out flat on the table.
