THANK YOU, MAGNOLIA!!!



EXTRA! EXTRA!! READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!

I won blog candy on Magnolia's blog way back in April. My win was described as the 2009 Pet Collection. I was really thrilled, I figured I'd get five or maybe even ten new stamps all the way from Sweden! It was pretty hard to wait, but I compensated by continuing to support the papercrafting industry in many ways;) So yesterday, I get a postage due notice. When they give me the bag/envelope, it's due $4.90. I thought that was odd, and wondered what it was, as there was no return address at all. It didn't even look like it came from out of the country. I couldn't tell from the feel or weight of it what it was, so when I opened it, I almost fell out of my chair!!! Are you ready????????????????????????????????????

48 BRAND NEW MAGNOLIA STAMPS!!!!

Can you imagine? They sent me the ENTIRE Pet Collection! I can't wait to show them all to you, but it will take a while-that's a lot of stamps to use!!

This card shows off six of the stamps, Edwin, the jeep, three different flowers and the sunset. I love them all and had a great time coloring them with my Prismas/OMS. This card is 6x6, so you can see that these are good sized images.

I hope all of you have the fun of winning something sometime soon-it's a thrill!!
