Favourite Magnolia Stamp at Magnolia Down Under

Hi Everyone

Seems like forever since I posted on my blog... and I guess it was last month, so it has been a while! I seem to be only making one card a month now and it's for MDUC, which is ok because I love my Magnolia Stamps

Anyway, this fortnight theme is Your Favourite Magnolia Stamp.... so I have used a new favourite - Tilda with Maggie the Monkey.  This is actually the first time I have used her, BUT I adore all the gorgeous cards I have seen with this particular stamp, and I just had to have her for my collection, even though I don't get much chance to play with those hundreds of Magnolia stamps now. So I hope you love my card as much as I do

My Paper is Magnolia, and Prima scrap I found and used for my Chicken Wire die... the die is from My Favourite Things. My Leaf is a Doo Hickey and cut out with I think Graphic 45... another bit of scrap I had lying beside my Big Shot! My Postage stamps are just some wooden blocks that I picked up in London... a very LONG time ago.... I must go there again... to London that is LOL and of course Tilda and Maggie are coloured with my copics.  My Monkey turned out a little more Polka Dot than I wanted... I guess since I am not colouring as much my skills have dropped a bit.  But it still looks cute, and that's all that really matters right?

Anything Goes at MDUC

Hey There

This fortnight at MDUC, we have an Anything Goes theme.... So that means you can make what ever you want with a Magnolia Stamp and link it up to our Challenge blog to be in the chance to win some gorgeous prizes!!!

For my card, I have used some oldie stamps for a card I made for my little girls kindergarten teacher.  She wanted a card for a sick little girl that she knows, that has just finished her rounds of Chemo.  I know she loved it:-) so I hope you guys do too! The pic isn't that great, and I couldn't take another as I had already given it!!
