I just love Magnolias!!!

So, I've been creating again! I absolutely love Magnolia stamps! The first one is one that my good friend Kristine from Ink Something (http://inksomething.blogspot.com/) sent to me. There are little ladybugs in the corners of the card, both inside and outside. Fun, huh?


So, then I received my very own set of Magnolia stamps, along with a wonderful suprise of Christmas Embellies! So excited at this moment! :)

THEN! The creations begin!
This one is for my friend, Miss Anna, who is 7 and only has 1 more chemo treatment left, then her hair is going to start growing back! I imagined this is what she might look like at that time, so I picked this Magnolia stamp for her. I'll be sending it later this week. She loves to get mail and her mom said she loves my cards, too! I just know she's going to love this one!

Notice the little pink ribbons...
My sister's birthday is next month and this card is so fitting for her. The saying on the inside says "I'm smiling because you're my sister, I'm laughing because there's nothing you can do about it!" So perfect for our relationship (I'm the younger sister) and the giggling Tilda was PERFECT!


So, what do YOU think? I had so much fun making these! I love stamping! Have a great day tomorrow!

Thank you all so much for all the wonderful comments! I haven't had much experience making what I call "full blown" cards (meaning that the insides are decorated, too), but they've become just so much fun to make that I can't resist! And those Magnolia's! I thought I loved Bella's, but Tilda is taking over! lol I'll be posting another card tomorrow, with Bella :) Thanks, again, for all your encouraging & wonderful comments!
