Doo Hickey Flower

I've long admired the Magnolia Doo Hickey lacey looking flower so imagine how thrilled I was to discover that I put it in a recent on-line order. I love it when I surprise myself like that, which is getting easier to do the older I get. 

I offered this stamp up for sale at a recent used craft sale with the idea that if it didn't sell it was going back in my stash.  I like it but it is big. I pretty much only make A2 sized cards so the BIG stamps aren't quite as appealing, but I made this 4.5" x 6" monster just to prove that I can.

The Fine Print: Stamp by Stampotique, floral vine by Memory box, doo hickey flower by Magnolia, designer paper from some really old stash as is the fancy pants brad.

Don't you just LOVE surprises? I accidentally ordered a ream of paper I didn't want in a recent Amazon order. BEWARE the point-click-ship. ;/

I'm not one for surprises lol..When I order I do get excited though waiting for them to arrive..A FABulous card with the sweetest of images. You must use her again cause she's lovely, and looks so glad that she didn't leave home.

Very cheery color combo, and loved the lacey flower. I hear you about the large stamps. I love Northwoods stamps, but some are quite large. Don't object to making a larger card, but don't like to have to pay postage to mail it! Your card has some very pretty details with the lace flower, pretty vine & love the image. Glad IE is making believe with Firefox. Good news to keep on the back burner. Hugs

Adorable stamp!!!! Awesome flower!!!! Isn't it fun to surprise ourselves when items come in the mail?! Sadly there is the not so happy surprises as well. I was certain I bought some Prima dolls stamp online so when I went on vacation and saw the Prima dolls (at a lesser price, I might add) I did not purchase them. Come to find out ...my faulty memory didn't remember that I took them out of my cart at the last minute and no Prima dolls awaited me!!!!
