If Friends Were Flowers...


I've got a new card to share with you.  This one is a friendship card.  I wanted to showcase a couple of newly-released stamps from Magnolia Stamps--they're adorable!

This is how I've decorated the inside of the card and I've placed another Magnolia Stamps cutie there.

Here are close-ups of the newly released Magnolia images I am featuring and their names:

- Cute Sakura Tilda from the newly released Sakura Collection 2015

- Golden Week Tilda from the newly released Sakura Collection 2015

The stamps for both the above images and other Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Diana 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.
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia DoohickeyWild Rose Studio.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
