Just Magnolia - Thanks Challenge

Thanks for stopping by today. It's a short post because I'm literally running out the door. Here's my card for the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog which calls for a THANK YOU card this week. The prize is a $15 voucher to spend at the Whimsy Stamps store. I cased the layout from Michele Boyer here at Paper Cuts. She's one very talented crafter and I love her layouts and stunning creations so checkout her blog here.


I looooooove my Magnolias and this Tilda is one of my faves. I got it from Phebe at the Town Scrapper a while ago. Phebe first introduced me to Magnolias over 2 years ago and and my collection has grown and grown and grown - LOL. BTW, by popular demand Phebe has extended her SALE until February 14th. Everything in the store is buy 1 item and get the 2nd of equal or lesser value for 50% off. Imagine how much you'll save on these must-have Magnolias, papers and wonderful embellies! Besides Magnolias, Phebe also carries a great selection of Whiff of Joy, CC Designs, Greeting Farm, Wags 'n Whiskers and Kraftin' Kimmie stamps plus so many wonderful papers, embellishments and other crafting accessories, including a large selection of Spellbinder products. Valentine's is around the corner so you could put together a wishlist for hubby to surprise you with. Phebe's great to deal with so contact her at or by phone at 519-882-0623.

Pics aren't great because sun is MIA but here's a close-up of the card. Image stamped on Beckett Expression CS with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics (E000, E00, E21, E25, E49, E53, E59, R20, lots of the Blender Pen, Stickles for the wings and paper pieced rest of image).


Enjoy your day - it's almost the weekend. Big Hugs,
