Sending Happy Thoughts - FFFC #138 'Lots of Flowers'

Hello.  Happy Friday.

It's time for a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  We have the lovely Nathalie hosting this challenge and the theme she has chosen is 'Lots of Flowers.'  Out sponsor for this challenge is Live and Love Crafts.  Don't forget to visit our Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog to get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun.  Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

Here's what I've created for the challenge.

And yes, I've decorated the inside also.

I've used my alcohol-ink markers to do the colouring along with a few coloured pencils--the colours are listed below.
Here are close-ups of the adorable Magnolia Stamps images being featured:

- Summer Buzz Tilda from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014

- Divine Tilda from the Waiting for Christmas Collection 2014

Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
