Making cards...

I have been busy all weekend with my new Magnolia stamps. Stamping. Colouring them in with watercolour pens and having lots of fun. I have surprised myself. I didn't think it would be half as fun and therapeutic as it was. In fact I have done so many images I don't even know if they all will ever get a home on a card etc. So I thought it was only appropriate to at least start making some cards with them this morning.

I actually can't even decide whether I like these cards or not yet (I blame my headache for that LOL!) but here are the first two:


Sorry about the funny background shades. The base cards are white. The top right corner looks like I have used grey cardstock and the bottom left like the white cardstock it is. When it's bad light outside (rain-threatening like now) I always have this problem. If anyone have any ideas of how to get around that - please leave me a comment, thanks :)

Okay I better continue on my Design Team work...

Hi Anso, I dont have a blog of my own but discovered your blog through a friends. I had ordered a variety of Magnolia stamps from Magnolia International and have been waiting patiently for 2 weeks,
then noted on your blog that you had ordered Magnolia stamps and saw the lovely cards you made with them. you mentioned your thanks to Bryony, I wondered if you would be willing to share with me the company in which you purchased your stamps from.

Thanks Gillian
