My new Magnolia Stamps are here!!!

Well I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Mine not so great. I have just started to get happy about settling in my new place, and I really love it! Then my significant other gets a call from his boss saying he is going to be laid off in 2 months, and just wanted to give him a heads up, which we much appreciate. I just don’t get life. How come I’m not allowed to be happy? It’s always something!!

On a brighter note, My awesome, amazing Magnolia-licious Design Team package came yesterday! I LOVE them!!! Thanks a whole bunch Diana. They are all so cute I just kept looking at them alllllllllll day! It was better than Christmas!

I made this card for my friend Sherri and her husband Kenny, today is their Anniversary. Which gave me a perfect reason to ink up my new Bride and Groom stamp! Her favorite color is pink, like mine. Sherri bought me some cute little bows and flowers so I promised to use the blows on her card. Hope she likes it!

Hope you all have a wonderful evening, and rest of the weekend!

I'll bet it was better than Christmas getting into that DT kit, yahoo!!! Seems like anything good is counteracted with something bad, I hope your hubby finds something to replace his current job.

Now onto this gorgeous creation of yours!! Your colouring is beyond beautiful and I love those colours and flowers!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
