Thinking of You


Just a short post here to show you my latest card.  I got my new stamps in the mail!  Woo-hoo.

Love this scalloped oval shape--don't know whay I don't use it more often.  I've set up this card as an easel card.

A closer look at this newly-released Magnolia Stamps image.

- Frenchy Tilda from the Spring Fever Collection 2016

The stamp for this image is available from Magnolia-licious, where Diana has a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia Stamps.  And if you can't find the particular stamp you're looking for, contact Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
