Just Sittin' Here...

Hello.  Happy Monday!

Today is Mini Monday #14 at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  Every Monday, a few DT gals get to feature Mini Magnolia images that are available at the Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Today, it's Chris', Patti Jo's and my turn to participate.
So this is the card that I've created...


You can't really tell from the picture, but this is actually a mini card.  The card measures only 4 inches in diameter. 
I've also made this into an easel card.  I just love the way I can staged easel cards on display.



I have used three stamps from Magnolia for this card:

- Mini Sitting Tilda With Butterfly from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
- Death Cap Mushrooms from the Autumn and Halloween Collection 2008
- 'Just Sittin' Here Thinking of You' text from the Chasing Butterfly Collection 2009


Check out Magnolia-licious for these and other Magnolia stamps--both full size and mini.  If you don't see the one you're looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask here if she can bring it in for you. 

Don't forget to check out what Chris and Patti Jo have created for today's Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  And get the details on how you can save a further 10% off the already discounted prices of the mini stamps and...the new feature 'Deal of the Day'--the 'deal' item changes daily and is heavily discounted.

Challenges for this card:
No Matter Which Challenges -  Challenge #9 - Things With Wings
Bearly Mine Challenges - Challenge #86 - Lucky Dip (diecuts, flowers, pearls)
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 147 - Smell the Roses
