My first Magnolia stamp

I know what you must be thinking...what took you so long??? I have asked myself the same question and the truth is I really don't know. Magnolia just came into my head when I was thinking which stamp to use for hubby's card Valentines'. Edwin reminds me of Andrew somehow but when I compare the two there is no resemblance at all, funny that!!!I also ordered the Magnolia magazine which I would highly recommend, I had a quick browse there was no way my kiddi winkles were getting their dirty wee hands on this. Will have a better look when I know they are safe in bed lol!

My friend Kirsty asked me to make a Valentines for her boyfriend so here it is, hope she likes it!!

stamp-Magnolia Edwin with balloon
DP's- PM capsule collection 'red hot'
cardstock-The Papermill
sentiment-nestie,shimmer dots and silver peeloffs
large brads-PM capsule collection' red hot'

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Hope you are all enjoying a nice relaxing Sunday morning.
