Warm Wishes - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday #83

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another "W"ednesday Post at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Wednesdays are when the DT gals take turns showcasing the stamps from other companies (besides Magnolia Stamps) that Magnolia-licious store carries.

I've decided to go with a Wee Stamps image and also a popular theme for this month 'Christmas in July.'  And yes, this is my first Christmas card of the year...yikes, so I'm late in starting my Christmas card collection.

I've added rhinestones/blings to the centre of each snowflakes.  I've added glitter to the mound of snow the little angel is sitting on, to the snow on the branch and to her halo.

Here's how I've decorate the inside of my card.

The bird sitting on the branch is a Magnolia Stamps image called Bullfinch from a very old 2009 So Jolly + Under the Mistletoe Collection that I've stamped, coloured and cut out.

Here's a close-up of the sweet little angel being featured...

She is called Angelica designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.

The stamp for this image is available from Magnolia-licious.  You can see the rest of the Wee Stamps/Whimsy Stamps collection HERE.

You may also want to check out the other stamps that Magnolia-licious carries--stamps from Magnolia Stamps of course, Wild Rose StudiosCandibeans , Saturated CanaryCrafter's Companion and a few other companies.

Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and there's also a customer reward program where you earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.

For your chance to win a "Leave A Comment" Surprise Package Prize from Magnolia-licious, there is a weekly random draw.  All you have to do is leave a comment--the more you comment the greater your chances.
