heart to heart–hand in hand

Hello friends… finally I feel iam getting back to normal. The kids are both back to school and Halloween is over. Geee… sewing for Lucas a Ninja head mask and a sword cover was a pain in the behind, but he looked really “cool” Smile.  Today I would like to show you a card made with a image that has been requested and I must say I have a hard time explaining in English how special this one had turned out for me. This image is back from early 2009 (New Years Collection) when some other great card makers like Ila, Bea or Inge were still with me on the Magnolia Design Team. Sooo very much has changed since than, and while coloring my memories were coming back about all the beautiful cards they make.  I remembered  about how excited I was when I got my very first Inge card using this image – OMG! She colored Tilda’ s coat blue Smile a really stunning card. Now I own like 3 or 4 of her artwork.

Beautiful! I have always loved this image too! My son who is six was also a Ninja - I was lazy though and rather than sewing, I found a super easy technique for using an inside out black t-shirt to make the mask! I was so very relieved to not sew!
