Magnolia....yum

I have loved and admired the gorgeous Magnolia stamps for quite sometime. but never been actually lucky enough to own any. Well.....I'm now the proud owner of quite a few...slowly building up my collection. So now I thought..well you have some...you had better start using them. Hence me making a few cards lately!

I'm not really a card maker, and I actually get nervous making a card. no idea why i just do. Anywho.....I've been scouring a few blogs to get some ideas and came across Kellie Winnell's blog. She also has a Magnolia challenge blog...this week the challenge is a sketch so I thought..why not give it a shot. Now its only very plain, which is so not like me at all, but its done, even if it does follow the sketch really closely..lol. Again so not like me!
So here is my effort for the sketch at MAgnolia Down Under Challenges.


I so want to whack some flowers on it but seeing as I'm actually going to be mailing it to someone through the post i decided not to.

Once the Magnolia bug has bitten there is no turning back. We all love them and I am sure you will have a huge collection very soon.
