Sending you a warm Smile


It's time for another challenge at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  Our new theme is buttons, beads or bows
Here's my DT card...

I actually managed to have all three featured items on my card--the trio of buttons, the beads used as flower centres and the big bow at Tilda's back...LOL.  You don't have to have all 3 items, so I hope you'll join us in our challenge.  For more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog and also check out the fabulous cards of my DT teammates for inspirations. 

This is what the inside of my card looks like...

I have used a couple of Magnolia stamps which are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.

This cute image on the card front is called Hello Little Butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.

And this adorable image in the inside of my card is called Tilda Hiding Heart from the With Love Collection 2013.  

Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious, is an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps. Diana has a vast collection of 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!

Aww, Norma, this is just the sweetest! I love the inside - especially the foliage cuts in the inside corners. Your Tildas are so sweet. You've colored them perfectly! I love your mix of papers.
