Another super duper fantastic blog reader.....

Goodness gracious, do I have the best blog readers in the world or what?? I received a wonderful goodie package the other day from Susan Paulson, another reader who read my woes of not ordering the Magnolia summer kit. She immediately offered to stamp off some images for me. Well....let me tell you....not only did she stamp 4 images of each & every stamp in the kit....she stamped everything onto Neenah paper (which I'm loving!!)....stamped them absolutely perfectly....AND she painstakingly used her markers to stamp the strawberries, so I could have red strawberries with green tops instead of just black ones. Is she awesome or what?? Thank you so much, Susan!!

Of course I couldn't wait to play, & I knew I wanted to use the adorable ice cream-eating Tilda first. She reminds me of me!! Ok, well she's way cuter....but I do love my ice cream!! I used my Prismas & gamsol to color her, then cut her out & plopped her onto a white panel embossed with Swiss Dots. The papers are SU's Pink Passion & Basic Grey's Sultry. I followed a sketch from this past spring on Truly Scrumptious....added a Hero Arts sentiment....& some ribbon, flowers & Dew Drops.

Here's a close up of the cutie. I absolutely adore each & every one of the new Magnolias & can't wait to play with some more!! Thanks again, Susan.....& thanks to every one else who has offered to send me images!! In my book, there can never be too many Magnolias!!

Well I'm off to feed my kids some dinner then take them to swimming lessons! Michael just advanced a level & he's so proud :)

As always, thanks so much for visiting!!!!

Oh My Goodness! I never expected you to thank me on your blog! What a surprise I got when I saw this! I am so happy that you are enjoying the images. It was a pleasure to stamp them for you. You are so talented! I just knew you would create beautiful cards with them, so I wanted to be sure the images were as near to perfect as possible.
This card is wonderful! I love the bright pink. It makes the whole card very cheerful and summer-like. Tilda really seems to be enjoying her ice crean cone!

Oh Michelle she is so cute. I think this new release is my absolute favorite. I love the strawberries. I got some images from a SCSer too. I did the little girl with the strawberry hat. This is so sweet. I love the paper you used. You have the best paper. I want your stash. Hope your week is going great..Hugs.
