My First Dip Into the Magical word of Magnolia!

I have been toying with the idea of buying some Magnolia stamps for quite a while. Being the kind of crafter who likes to fully research potential purchases I decided to have a little nose on Ebay.

Well, my little nose around ended up with the purchase of my first Magnolia stamp for the bargain price of just over £3 (including P&P)!!!

I think this stamp was so cheap because it looked awful in the photo - it was covered in so much ink I couldn't really make out the image!But hey presto -  one alchohol free baby wipe later and it is immaculate!

Out came my the Promarkers, a piece of 6 x 6 freebie paper, a Craftwork Cards embossed frame, distress inks, green swirlage and a few yellow flowers. I am very pleased with the result and am now sitting waiting for another Ebay auction to end - fingers crossed!
