What's a cowberry muffin??

Hi all! Lookie here...my first Magnolia card!



My sweet, sweet friend Terri sent me a bunch of these Magnolia images to try out. I have to admit I wasn't a big Magnolia fan all along...I didn't think they were *my thing* at first. Well, after seeing all the great cards Terri has made with them (she rocks them every time) and now that I've colored up a bunch, I'm converted!! They're totally fun to color...I especially like this one with the cupcake. Well, actually the stamp is called Tilda with Cowberry Muffin....what exactly is a cowberry muffin?? LOL!

Thanks for all the images, Terri! I have five more images all colored and ready to go. I got on a roll one night while watching TV and couldn't stop. Hehe!

The layout is today's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC211). The punched hearts and the scallop rectangle are all up on Dimensionals. Diamond Stickles were added to Tilda's wings.

Awwww- she's so sweet--adorable card and I love the gingham. I have this stamp too and I have NO CLUE what a cowberry muffin is... I think it might worry me to find out though!! :) (Hopefully it's not similar to a COW PIE!) (I grew up on a farm, so I DO know what those are!) Ick!

Such a cute card! I love Magnolia stamps and yes, be careful, they are addicting!
I googled cowberry and this is what I've got:
COWBERRY
A small member of the cranberry family which grows wild in the mountains of Scandinavia, Russia, Canada and Maine. The tart red berries are rarely available fresh outside of these areas, but can be found as sauces or preserves. It's often called the "mountain cranberry".
But wikipedia was little more helpful :)

Oh, how CUTE!!! You are converted! I wasn't crazy about them either, but then had to have some after seeing a few certain stampers creations with them. I love how you carried over the sketch to the inside of your card as well!! Can't wait to see more!

Hmmm, I am not going to try to guess what a cowberry muffin is....maybe something got lost in the "translation"! But Magnolia sure is cute, esp with the blue gingham--love that!
