Magnolia Happy Birthday!

Hi there on the 2nd January :)

Hope you had a fabulous 1st!
As I've already made loads of Christmascards the last couple of weeks, it's time to start with other cards again like BIRTHDAY-cards :) Never can have enough, though I must say not all the people I know will get a handmade one. Not all appreciate all the work it takes to make one and those cards are thrown away as soon as their birthday is over.
But... there are a lot of people who DO appreciate them, and as my collection has went down the last few months, it's time to start making some more :)

So here's the first one of 2011: a Magnolia Happy Birthday-card.



And a detailphoto:


Have to say this isn't a Birthdaystamp, but a Christmasstamp from this year (actually last year :)), but think this one is just perfect for Birthdays.

Used some new copics with coloring and I totally love them. Perfectly black and not black with a blue or brown hue. Just perfect :)

Well... I'm off now. Enjoy your day!

See you later!

Oh hun, she is so beautiful! Great colours and details too. It breaks my heart to think of handmade stuff being binned within a day or two - if only the recipient could see how much love goes into making that card. I don't think this one will ever see a bin, it's brilliant. Hugs, Sxx
