Magnolia meets Mojo Monday

I feel like such a bad blogger and can't believe it has been so long since I posted. Since school has started I've been so busy, I can't believe it's almost been two weeks. I thought once they were all in school I was supposed to have more free time.....but it seems to be the opposite right now.

I received the Fall Kit from Magnolia stamps (my very first Magnolias I might add), and finally cut them apart ~ I know, I know, what on earth was I waiting for? Well, to be honest, I had never used "bare rubber" stamps before, only unmounted stamps with EZ Mount, so my intention was to put them on EZ mount before trimming. Well, it turns out I couldn't find it locally, so instead of ordering it and waiting longer, I decided to go ahead and try to use the stamps as is. I just put some double sided tape on my acrylic block, put the image on and stamped away. And you know what ~ to my amazement, they worked just fine!

I know she should probably be sitting "on" something, but I didn't want to use the rolling pin and really don't have anything else to use, so just pretend she's on a bench or a chair or......I guess something to sit on will have to be one of my next stamp purchases!

This card is for the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Use your favorite embellishment ~ this was a hard one, because I truly love so many different embellies! In the end I decided upon the new Prima flowers I got and added one of those (and I think these Dew drops are my favorite of all the colors since I only have about 20 left!).
