I hope you are all having a good week. Ive had a quite a hectic weekend and managed to get no crafting done at all! So now hopefully over the next couple of days I can be let loose in my craftroom!! Yay!!
I did however manage to paint this gorgeous new stamp I received as a lovely surprise from my sweet friend Camilla on Thursday!! She really did make my day, as my Autumn kit of the new Magnolia stamps were missing in the post and I kept seeing the gorgeous new images all over blogland!!! BOO HOOOO!!!
So I immediately inked her up!!! She is called 'Tilda with Snowheart' and you know me and hearts!!! I painted her with Distress Ink Dusty Concorde.
Then on Saturday the gorgeous new Christmas Magnolia papers arrived!!! WOW!!! I love these too. 
So finally, last night I managed to finish my card.
Here's a close up of the Poinsettia I made using Doo-Hickey die Poinsettia and then Sprinkling with Twinklets Diamond dust.

I know Ive gone mad with the die cuts again!!LOL . I dont think I could survive a day without my Cuttlebug!
Dies I have used are
Magnolia Doo Hickey-NEW 'Bloomy Tag'
Doo Hickey-Poinsettia
'Tim's' On the edge-Snowflakes
