Valentine Magnolia

This gorgeous Tilda is one from the new '09 Valentines colletion and is called "Tilda with hearts". She is just adorable isn't she and could be used for any occasion. My daughter Zoe said that it reminded her of her Nanny wearing her apron and with the red highlights in her hair. I might save this one for Mother's Day for her. I thought it would a cute idea to add the goodwear mini heart buttons in her apron. The store have some fabulous new stamps in stock. As well as new Magnolia's they have Pink Cat Studio and The Greeting Farm stamps (Anya). The highlighted links will take you directly to the products in the store.

Stamping cuties!

We have been very busy lately and have only just had time to put some of our ultra cute new arrivals on the website.

We have some adorable stamps from Pink Cat Studio here

Plus lots of the fabulous Anya and Ian stamps by The Greeting Farm here

As if that wasn't enough excitement we have the Magnolia Valentine's collection here

Anya - So Pretty!

I am loving the new stamp range from The Greeting Farm. This is Anya from 'pretty hat Anya' set and you can dress up her hat with the flower or bow and there's also a cute cat and bunny face which I think you could put over the doggy and then you'd have a different pet (just mask out the lead!)

Stash used (all highlighted products are from the shop and will take you directly to it):
Right off to get a few more of these cuties before they all go! Have a good day and wrap up warm!
