Seeds of Kindness

One of my current stamping obsessions is the Magnolia stamp line. Part of the appeal is the Swedish heritage (I spent a year in Sweden as an exchange student), but a big part is because they are just so darn cute!

Here's my most recent card, made for a dear friend on SCS who let me jump in on a Magnolia order from the Swedish site:

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda and Log, Papertrey sentiment. Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Tangerine Tango, Paper Studio Purple Dots, CM yellow plaid, GP110 white. Ink: Adirondack Jet Black, Lovely Lilac, copics. Accessories: Felt Fusion flowers, Primas, Bella dots, photo corner, white gel pen, Label Nestabilities.

If you are looking for Magnolias that don't take several weeks to arrive, are currently discounted 10%, and have free shipping, be sure to check out KNL Scrappin and Stampin . The Magnolia special runs through January; February begins a whole new round of pre-orders!

Another reason this post is titled 'Seeds of Kindness' is because I also wanted to spread the word about the SCS' Wish RAK group. WRAK is a sub-group of the RAK (Random Acts of Kindess) groups and consists of members who grant other member's 'wishes' and in return, receive credit for a wish on their own wish list. It started out as a way to trade images, but has blossomed into so much more -- the photo corner, Nestability label, Primas, and Bella Dots on this card are all items I have received through the generosity of WRAKers!

To join the fun on WRAK, you must first apply for the RAK group on Splitcoaststampers and then apply to the WRAK group; all applications are found under 'group memberships'.
