Magnolia Card Inspiration Book

Hello and good morning ... well here in Michigan it is morning. :-) Today i would love to show you a Christmas present that my dear friend Tina B. made for me. I was really touched by all her presents... not only does she ALWAYS think about my boys - she makes always the most beautiful artwork for me! Now you have to know Tina is very sick - she has bad Arthritis and has not been able to do anything crafty for a long time. Now can you imagine how surprised i was when i opened the wrapping paper and saw this book!!! All the ribbons and the other elements ... how difficult and painful must it have been for her!? I am truly touched by it. Thank you so much dear friend! I will treasure this forever and it will be definitely used for card sketches and tutorials. Hugs and love



Thank you so much Tina - i absolutely love your presents and the boys do too lol :-)

What a beautiful gift, Claudia :0) I know what effort it must have taken, I was diagnosed with the onset of osteoarthritis in my right hand 3 months ago.
