Celebrate Everything - January Wednesday Challenge at Magnolia-licious


On top of the regular fortnightly challenge that starts on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month, the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog has added a month-long challenge that starts on the 1st Wednesday of the Month--we're calling it the 'Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge.'  Each week's Wednesday posts at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is dedicated to this new challenge and the design team will be showcasing the Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then.

Here's the card I created for today's Wednesday post, using a Stamping Bella stamp.

A closer look at the Stamping Bella image being featured.

The name of this stamp is Tiny Townie Tiny Dancers.  It's actually a stamp set:  image and sentiment.

This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, HERE, and you may also want to take a look at the rest of the Stamping Bella collection, HERE.

Of course you can also find Magnolia Stamps at the Magnolia-licious, both full-size and mini stamps. And more other brands the store carries include Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Crafter's Companion.

I hope you join our challenge.  There's a prize of a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious.

Visit the challenge blog to get details on how you can play along with us.  Direct link to the January Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge HERE.
