For Shania!!

It is sheer joy to be able to make this card for our dear little friend and neighbour Shania who turns 4 tomorrow.  Some of you have heard me share Shania's story - she has had 4 Open Heart surgeries already in her little life and has sewn herself securley into the hearts of each member of our family!!  This is the first birthday she has had where she hasn't had a surgery - so is a big event!!

I haven't done a Magnolia for a while and this one is perfect as she is having  a 'Fairy Party', not to mention that Shania's Mum, Nat loves Magnolias!  I used the Our Creative Corner Sketch  for inspiration.  It also qualifies for the Creative Card Crew Challenge which is about Celebration AND for the Flutter by Wednesday which is only requiring a butterfly this week!  

I have chalked the image and added Kindy Glitz on the wings to give them that extra sparke.  The edges have been sponged and lace has been added along the left edge of the image.  Both the DP and the panel have been embossed and sponged and layered onto black CS.  Nail bling has been added , along with a sentiment and flower,  The sentiment is from PTI, the final touch is the added butterflies, with Nail Bling added.

Thank you for stopping by and for the very kind comments you leave - I look forward to seeing that you have been!  It is raining here and the kids first day back at school after a three week break - I am trying to catch up with a few things.....I hope your day is both relaxing and productive!!  God bless you!


  1. Lovely card Linda. Oh and the kids were only off for 2 weeks. Pity its raining though, brrrr.

  2. How adorable is this Linda and so perfect for that sweet little Shania for whom we all have prayed so much! What a blessing to see her having a 4th bd and no surgeries this time!!! God is so good! Blessing Linda!

  3. Aw, this is so sweet! I love your image and colors and I'm sure Shania will love it. I have a niece with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and she's probably coming close to her third and (God willing) finally surgery so I know something of what that family has been through! Thanks so much for playing the OCC challenge for such a deserving little girl!

  4. OMGosh, Linda this is such a sweet card!!! My little one os 4 and I can only imagine how thrilled this little girl is going to be to receive a stunning card like this. Aren't you the BESTEST neighbor ever!!!! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
