My first Magnolia....

Hi guys,

Now that I have used my FIRST ever Magnolia stamp, I can see why everyone is so addicted to these.  I must admit I wasn't such a fan of these until I started blogging, they are absolutely fantastic stamps, I am so going to get addicted.  My husband still isn't a fan BUT he hasn't seen my card yet lol.  Hopefully he'll love it and then I won't feel so guilty when I go shopping for more lol...  Well he has his cars and I have my crafting so it's fair she says.  Any my hobby is no where near as expensive as his lol....  Anyway enough domestics, down to business.

My card is just gorgeous, I spent a lot of time thinking about this as it is my first Tilda and I wanted to do her justice.  I am spending a lot more time planning my cards now then I ever have, I guess when you blog them you want them to be perfect right?  Also I am loving the results recently so definitely sticking to the planning.  Sorry drifting off again.  So the card lol....

 I don't think I could have done her any more justice, what do you think? 

 Just look at her face, she's just too cute

The sketch for this card came from Just Magnolia.  The recipe for the card: DP My minds eye-Spring, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Longing Tilda stamp, Promarkers to colour image, tiny butterfly punch, Cricut to cut circle and tag, computer typed sentiment.  Rest from stash.

Guys, could you do me a favour, as I am new to Magnolia stamps, could you list for me your favourites to help me build my collection?  Now I know some of you will say all of them lol, but I can't afford to buy them all (I wish) so for now, just those you couldn't live without?  I will really appreciate this.

This card is being entered into:
