Just Saying Hello

Hello.

I've been working on a few other cards--they're for future postings so I can't show them to you yet...hee hee--but I finally have a card that I can share with you now.  I wasn't really sure what sentiment to use on the card, so I I've made this an any-occasion card.



A close-up of the adorable image being featured...


She is called Tilda With Bow Beret from the newly released Sakura Collection 2015

The stamp for this image is 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, contact Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.

Magnolia-licious also carries stamps and cutting dies from other companies.  Check out the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from Memory Box and PoppyStampsMagnolia 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.
