Visit to Magnolia shop...

Borås, where Magnolia head quarters are situated, was covered in snow, it was blue skies and very cold! It's about 40 minutes from Gothenburg where I spent my Christmas holiday, so not so far away! My main goal was the Magnolia papers, but managed to spent a lot more on stamps, flowers and other stuff. The New Magnolia magazine is fantastic, which will now come to my mailbox every month! Anyway all of this resulted in the card above....which I enter in Just Magnolia last challenge for 2009, no 38, runs to 7 Jan 2010!

Stamps Magnolia
Colored with Copics
Papers by Magnolia
Lace Melissa Frances
Flowers Prima
Leaves Panduro
Sketch: Just Magnolia by Mina

Så jättefint! JättefinA kanske jag ska skriva! Du gör ju så fina kort!
Jag har inte pysslat med kort på länge, det var väl julkorten och de gjorde jag lite enkla, så jag skulle få några sålda på marknaderna. Gissa om jag blev snopen när jag inte sålde några kort på en av marknaderna.
Insåg anledningen, då jag hade min scrapkompis snettemot mej som sålde sina kort, liknande dina, för 20 kr!!!! Galet!!! Klart ingen köper mina enkla kort för 10 kr/st 12 för 100 kr...
Gott nytt kreativt år!
