Showers of Blessings

Hello.

Happy November, everyone!  Can you believe it's November already?  Yikes!  It feels like it was just yesterday that summer ended, but we're already in the middle of the autumn season.

 
Rain is the norm for November here, so I thought this adorable image is the perfect image for my card. 
 
And the inside of my card is almost always decorated also... 


The two Magnolia cuties being feautured are:


- London Tilda from the Little London Collection 2013


- Tilda With Daffodil Basket from the Little Easter Collection 2013

The stamps for the above two adorable Tilda's are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of other Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans

And don't overlook the cutting dies from various companies like Impression Obsession, Penny Black, Magnolia Doohickey, Poppy Stamps, Memory Box and others...like the one that I used on this card:
Memory Box 98634 Gwyneth Flourish, a gorgeous flourish that I sort of almost covered all up on the card front...LOL, but you can see the design inside my card.

Hi Norma,
This card is simply awesome. London Tilda is one of my favorites, I think it's because of our rainy weather here in Vancouver this time of the year and the image is so cheerful which really brightens my days. Your coloring is just amazing as usual and those flowers and die cuts are perfect embellishments.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Katie
