And So It Begins...

Whoo Hoo! These eagerly-anticipated stamps arrived in the mail yesterday:

First 4 Magnolia stamps

So of course, I had just a few hours to crack one open and colour my very, absolutely, positively firstst Tilda ever:


Now I just have to make a card for her.

It's the start of something wonderful; I just know it.

And yes, there are another dozen or so on order that should be arriving any day now.

Good thing I have a few vacation days left. I'm gonna need 'em when I am elbow deep in Copics.

Great job Maureen! Another dozen coming???!!! Oy! I'm expecting my first order, but I haven't ordered my copics yet. Don't know if I want to ruin my first attempt without the proper "tools". Look forward to seeing your other creations.

Holy moly...I think you must have been coloring Tilda in your sleep for years, because that is not the work of someone who has colored one for the first time. She looks fabulous! I am jealous that you have another dozen coming. Maybe I need to go order a few more, too. LOL. Gina L
