A Special Card

Good Morning

I am back, probably a few kg heavier as Christmas is now over and we have had a very nice time, lots of eating and lots of presents. 

I am sorry for not posting for a while, but with all the Christmas planning, buying gifts and keeping the kids happy and off course the computer decided to crash, time have been very limited.  Thank you to Dear Hubby for fixing the computer.  I will miss him a lot as he will be leaving for Cape Town in a few days to start his new job.

I would like to share a card with you that I have made for some of our family member who have just returned from holiday, to a house that have been broken in to, for the second time in about a month.  I just had to make a card to tell them that they are in our thoughts as they are a bit afraid off being at home, especially after the armed robbery (the first break-in).  When things like this happen I loose a lot of faith in our society, but we just have to pick up the pieces and carry on. 

I made this card with my very first Magnolia stamp that I can now call my own.  I have a total of 2 Magnolia stamps that is now in my personal collection of stamps and I must say that I am very, very happy about that fact.  Hopefully I can add to my stamp collection soon.

This Magnolia stamp is Ribbon Tilda.  The wording was a rub-on that I bought at a local craft shop and it says " I know that happiness is in the little things".

I will post another Tilda card tomorrow, it will be with the other Magnolia stamp that I have bought - Tilda sparkles.

Have an awesome day.

  1. Hi Marika, what a lovely card for your friends. I hope it will bring them comfort. How very very sad that some people in our society can not respect other's possessions. Congratulations on your 2 new Maggies, I am sure your collection is going to grow very quickly. Wishing you a wonderful 2012. hugs Sharon
