Birthday Girl - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday Post #93


Happy Wednesday!  It's that day of the week that the DT gals take turns showcasing stamps from other companies (besides Magnolia Stamps) that Magnolia-licious store carries.  Stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosCandibeansSaturated CanaryCrafter's Companion and a few other companies. Check out the complete selection HERE.

And coming to Magnolia-licious are Stamping Bella stamps...woo-hooooooo.  I'm so excited 'cause I just love their adorable images.  And so yes, today I'm featuring one of them.

I went with autumn colours here, seeing that it's the season now and besides I love the autumn-colour palette, no matter the season.  I've used my Letraset markers (colours listed below) to do my colouring.

The "birthday girl" sentiment is part of the stamp--it's a 2-stamp set, image and sentiment. 

Here's a close-up of the featured image--I just love this one, she's adorable! 

The stamp name is Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons, a Stamping Bella image.

This stamp and other Stamping Bella stamps are available from Magnolia-licious for pre-order and the prices have been discounted by 10%...yay.  Check them out HERE!

Also note that you earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases--a nice reward program on top of excellent customer service.
