A Special Day


I have a birthday card to show you. 

I made this into another easel card.

I've done a bit more work with the stamping--some masking work here in order to feature these 2 Magnolia images. 

The adorable gal is Happy Spring Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011--one of my fave Magnolia collections.  The Summer Cake is from the Summer Memories Collection 2011.  The images were coloured with Letraset Promarker and Letraset Pantone Tria markers.
Magnolia-lious, Diana's on-line store, is my source of Magnolia stamps, offering you a vast selection of both the full-size and mini stamps. However, if you don't see the stamps that you want there--both of these two images are currently out of stock--just contact Diana and she will be happy to order it in for you. Have a look also at the variety of cutting dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs. Diana gives excellent service, discounted prices and you get to earn in-store credit for every order.
