Across the miles...


I've just finished putting the final touches on a shaped easel card.

This is one of my favorite shapes to use for a shaped easel card.  The shape is from a Go Kreate die set.

I am featuring one of the adorable images from Magnolia's A Christmas Story Collection 2012.  This image is called Tilda with Lovikkamittens.  The letter image is of Holly Letter from the So Jolly and Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009.

This collection and Magnolia's latest Nativity Collection 2012--they're oh so cute!--are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Hop over and check out the coloured images of the stamps rather than just the black stamped images with a watermark on top of it--you can see how adorable the images are. Click HERE and HERE.
Other stamps, both full-size and mini, are also available from Magnolia-licious.  If you don't see the stamp that you want there, just ask Diana and maybe she can bring it in for you.
Not to be missed are the variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs. Check out Magnolia's new Christmas doohickey cutting dies.
Diana provides excellent services, discounted prices and you also earn in-store credit for every order.
