Made with love Sunday....


How are you I hope your weekend is going well and that the weather is being kind to you.

I have made a card today which is going to a store in Norway in Kjopsvik. They are selling Magnolia stamps there and they asked for a sample card.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. I have stamped sweet Tilda with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with walnut stain. The stickles I have used are star dust and I have also used a sakura stardust pen. I have sprayed the hearts and flowers with glimmer mist.

Thank you so very much for looking!

Have a lovely day.

Hello, my dear Kim!
Och blow... I may not work at the moment at all with Magnolia stamps. There is here in Germany soon no more shop which has the stamps. However, I think this lies with Magnolia himself, the deliveries simply last too long! All the more, it gives pleasure to me to look at your cards! However, they are also so nice always! I still wish you nice Monday!
Letting you sometimes embrace!
I hope *lol* you anderstand me *gg
