Enjoy Your Special Day!


I am enjoying colouring the images from the new stamp collection from Magnolia, Once Upon A Time Collection 2013.  But I have just been busy doing the actual colouring and not producing any cards at all with the images...LOL.  But finally I have finished one to show you...

I think this oh so adorable image is my new favorite stamp.

She is called Sitting Tilda With Butterfly.  I have sat her on the Large Snail from the Fairytale Collection 2010

The inside of my card looks like this...

I have paired the sitting Tilda in front with this Tilda in Ugg Shoes from the Australian Collection 2012 .  I thought this was the perfect matching as both Tildas are with Flutter, the pet butterfly--I took licence in naming the butterfly...tee hee hee

All of the Magnolia stamps I've used here are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini stamps. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Also available now at Magnolia-licious are those adorable Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and a variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.
Diana offers discounted prices, excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Cool!
