Hi Shirley, thanks for the lovely comments on my blog, they are much apppreciated, the magnolias cost about 5.95 GBP and depending on what the dollar is to the pounds depends on how much. It was fast shipping though. Your card is lovely, that Martha Stewart punch is one of my faves and the colour scheme is lovely, Sam
