Sending Love Your Way - Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge #12


It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge Blog.  And sadly to say, this will also be our last challenge.  The theme for this challenge is Love/Valentine.
Here's my DT card...

I am featuring this adorable curly-haired gal called Tilda Sending Love Letters.  She is an older Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2011.

This stamp and other Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini, are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Owner Diana really has the best discounted prices for them.  She gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase--cool!
And to the store are those wonderful Wee Stamps designed by Sylvia Zet--my fave stamps next to Magnolia!!  Check them out HERE.

This card is actually an easel card...

with an added swing-away panel at the bottom to hide a blank space where you can write your personal message.

If you're interested in how to make this type of cards, sometime ago I made a tutorial for a round card instead of an oval one--HERE.

Challenges for this card:
Dutch Magnolia Chickies Challenge #38 - Also decorate the inside of your card
Magnolia-Mania Challenge #63  - Anything Goes with option 'hearts'
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #49 - Pearls and Swirls
Allsorts Challenge Week 193 - Valentine
Totally Gorjuss Challenge 170 - Love!
Stampin' for the Weekend - Something Metal (heart and XOXO)
Winter Wonderland Challenge - Get in Shape

That's all for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate the visit.  Have a wonderful week!
