First Kiss - Let's Make Cards

Hello thank you for visiting me today. I hope you are having a good start today and i can inspire to visit us over on the Friday Sketcher blog to use the fabulous sketch my friend Murmur from France has come up with for one of your cards. Of course we have also a fabulous prize up for grasp - to make it even more fun.
Murmurs sketch has swirls on one corner.. of course feel free to add any embellishment you have but i just got 2 days ago those pretty Making Memories papers and the new Prima flourishes and i was like Yeeeepiieeee.. that's just perfect to use my new stuff :-) I love this image from STAMPAVIE called "First Kiss" and it was my first pick... just romantic, innocent and sweet :-) If you are not a wholesaler you can purchase your STAMPAVIE stamps and other card making supplies at Summer's store (she is just so helpful :-). The card looks really pretty in real - the pink and black looks elegant together. For my flower embellishments that the sketch called for i picked a black flower that has black glitter on and the other flower is a sheer grey organdy one, placed over a soft pink hydrangea. Everything else is from Making Memories line "Sabrina". The inside is decorated as well and on the envelope i stamped my most favorite swirl stamp :-) It is a Magnolia stamp and i am very grateful to sweet Jaqueline who organized that i could get this stamp because it is not available through the web site. Thanks so much my dear friend!!!

OH MY GOSH.. :-) I just got the links from Stampavie for this posting and i noticed that Stewart has loaded the advertisement that uses 2 of my Rachelle Anne Miller cards to the STAMPAVIE site. aaahhhh :-) this advertisement will be published in "Let's Make Cards"magazine in the UK along with a big inteview with Rachelle Anne Miller herself. I have seen a proof of the ad before Christmas, but on the site it does look even better lol. While you are on the Stampavie site.. please take a peek to the very new Leere Aldrich Collection! Soooo funny those ladies :-)
I have listed the Sarah Kay card and some others over on ebay with a low starting price. I am planning to list some stamps and a Spellbinder Wizard cutting machine (must find out how much shipping will be) this weekend as well.

Hi there Claudia, A stunning card as always but I would like to pick your brains if I may, I am trying to purchase stamps from the 'Magnolia StampClub' site but don't seem to have any joy. Do you have an email address or any other contact details for them.
