Nurse Tilda sneak peek, CHA photos & Blog Candy!!

July 26, 2011

Hello friends!   I’m so excited to say that I’ve just returned from Chicago where I was honored to be demonstrating various Copic marker techniques while coloring for my favorite stamp company ~ Magnolia!!    A dream come true, in my opinion!

I hope you have a few minutes — since I’ve got LOTS of photos to share!!   And, some anniversary blog candy at the end.

I was also privileged to meet two of THE nicest people in the world ~ Barbro and John of Magnolia.   It was such a wonderful time spent during CHA with them.

I also FINALLY met up with my dear friend, the amazingly talented, super nice and drop dead gorgeous, Suzanne Dean after many years of working on several DTs together.   Adding to my excitement, I was also privileged to meet Angie Hunt, Ruby Montes and Patti Jo Skoguist, three of the sweetest, most talented ladies around – all working at the Magnolia-licious mini stamp booth!   I felt so lucky to spend time with all of these wonderful people.

Angie, Suzanne, Ruby & Patti Jo

I’ll keep my chatter short today so I have room to share some of the photos I was able to take of the GORGEOUS Magnolia booth … truly my favorite at CHA.

But, I do want to share a quick sneak peek of an ADORABLE, soon to be released image from the newest Magnolia ~ Winner Takes It All collectionNurse Tilda!

I’ve made this card for another dear friend of mine and fellow crafter, who has been ill recently.  So, Nurse Tilda will soon be on her way wishing her a VERY speedy recovery!

And, finally some photos of the Magnolia booth at the summer, 2011 CHA show in Chicago, IL:

Card, cards and more BEAUTIFUL cards from the Magnolia Design Team ~ which rec’d MANY compliments from passers-by:

I’m celebrating my TWO-YEAR anniversary of being on the Magnolia Design Team with some fun goodies directly from Magnolia:

Five Mini Magnolia stamps

Four Magnolia dies

various Magnolia 6x6 papers

Four packs of Magnolia various color chandelier glass garlands

Various Magnolia 12x12 papers

5 Copic markers

If you’d like a chance to win this prize package … all you need do is add your name to the InLinkz form below.   (If you don’t have a blog, no worries – just copy and paste my blog address from above.)

I’ll choose a winner in one week, on August 2nd!

Thank you!!

    Wow Mary…I KNOW that you had so much fun here and congrat’s on your anniversary. I was so excited when I saw Angie Hunt’s pic’s that she posted which of course had you in them. I finally got to see a pic of you. So now, I have met Suzanne and Angie (I go to her monthly card classes) but yet to actually meet you. As you know, I think your work is still #1. I so miss your daily posts but know that that must be so hard to do. I have kept every post (under, Amazing Mary) you have done since I found you 2 years ago and STILL consider you the “BEST”. Thank you for all the inspiration that you have given me. One day I am going to meet you that’s for sure..Oh yeah…Great card as always….

      All I can say that now that Brits are being turned away, Goa is suddenly destination non gratis.Compare that to when they thought they could buy and all you got was preening and smugness about their little haven in paradise. Read the expats site if you want a real taste of their bile.Oh and by the way- Indians were only allowed into the UK when their labour was required. As soon as it is not – as has been demonstrated recently – they are not.

    Thank you so much for sharing those pictures, sure am green with envy! to see such cards in real life and to visit the booth – wow that would be some dream – so to be able to visit through someone who can, is as good as it is gonna get for me!! lol.
    I love all your cards, the nurse one is the first stamp I picked out to buy from the new range so to see a card actually made up was awesome. Thanks again for sharing, Best wishes SarahS
