Published in Magnolia Ink


I am so excited and proud - William has a card featured in the latest edition of Magnolia Ink !!!!

How amazing !!!

He made an Easter Card and I emailed it to Magnolia Ink for their "Kids Corner" page - I was so pleased to see that it had been published - if you have a copy, you can see his card on page 69.

He's so happy - he's walking around with a huge grin on his face :o)

Here's the card he made

He did an amazing job of colouring the image using Promarkers - here's a close-up:

He raided my stash for papers, flowers, the button, ribbon and doily and then die cut the leaf using a Spellbinders Die.

Here are some photos of him making the card - I love how hard he is concentrating.

So, as you can see, I have some serious crafty competition to contend with - how can I possibly beat having a card published in Magnolia Ink ?!!!

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you like William's card.

Dear William,

I would never have known that a grown up did NOT make that card! You did such a careful job! I love so many things about it. I love that you stayed in the lines when you colored with the markers. Coloring with markers is hard for grown ups! You did it perfectly! I love how nicely you arranged everything on the front. It was done so neatly and not overloaded. I couldn't even find any places where your glue squeezed out! It is wonderful! You should be very, VERY proud! I'm proud of you and hope you will make even more cards! Your mom has a great cardmaking buddy!
