Sweet Wishes - Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge #1

Hello. 

The formerly known 'Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog' is now Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog to reflect the two types of stamps that are now available at Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Woo-hoo...Wee Stamps are my second favorite stamps next to Magnolia!  For our first challenge the theme is...BIRTHDAY.  

I hope you'll play along with our challenge. To find out the complete details on the challenge and how to join in the fun, hop over to the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  Have a look at the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates for inspirations.

For my DT card, I have created this criss-cross card...


The criss-cross panels form a pocket that you can insert something into.  I have made this pullout tab on which I have created a blank space to write a personal message on. 

 

 
  
On my card, I am featuring a couple of images from the new Magnolia's With Love Collection 2013.
This cute image is of Tilda With Big Cup of Ice Cream... 


and equally adorable is this Up Up and Away--I think this one may be my favorite image from this collection.

 
These 2 stamps and a vast selection of other Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini--are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana on-line store.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.  And now available at Magnolia-licious are those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet
Have a look also at the selections of cutting dies also from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.
Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Sweet!!
