Magnolia - Special Friend

I don't ever play with my magnolia stamps enough so last night while watching Survivor, I decided it was time to pull out one of my few (I know I need more ;)) Tilda's and colored her in.   I'm still working on my coloring technique with my copics but I think it still came out pretty cute :)  I did have a run-in with my yellow marker where it looked like colored water was coming out of it--grrrr!!  I've never used it so I have no clue what was up with that.

Here is the outside of the card:

Victorine Originals - Eat Ham

This card has taken me two days to make.  I have been struggling with the crazy accordion flower and I can see that the stupid thing is coming apart again!  Does anyone have any good ideas how to keep those things together?

For this card I used two stamps from Victorine Originals...Turkey and eat ham.

Victorine Originals - Eyes of a Child

For today's card I combined two stamps from Victorine Originals.  The first one is Small open window and the second one is shooting star.  When I saw shooting star, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  Inside the card the saying is:  "If you can see the world through the eyes of a child, you will find true beauty".

If you hurry now, the store is having a huge sale--up to 60% off!!  Hurry now though cause it's not going to last long.
