St. Nick's Day & My first Magnolia card!

St. Nick visits our house every year. So this year Kyle, who is 10 is somewhat questioning the validity of this whole thing. I think a huge part of him really believes in the magic of Christmas. So he put his shoes out. Since he couldn't find Cortney's shoes, he put my ONE white gym shoe out for her gift. He proceeded to place his stuffed animals' shoes out! (Along with the stuffed animals....maybe he thought they would act as spies? )
He placed a Pepsi and NERDS for St. Nick and wrote him a note asking him if he could leave a little something for his stuffed animals. (I am sure Santa had quite a bit more energy after drinking and eating Kyle's snack!)
When he awakened in the morning he had a movie and Cort had a book. He asked me why St. Nick didn't leave his animals anything. I told him Santa had billions of kids to leave gifts for and there was no way he could leave stuffed animals toys too. His reply? "Boy is he cheap!" I was cracking up!!!

I have seen these adorable Magnolia stamps on quite a few blogs. (Specifically Sophia Landry's over at Moonlight Inker ) I just fell in love with this sweet face. I used my Copic Air Brush system for the first time. (Thanks Carol and Simone!) I think I need to practice a little more with it. It was a bit splotchy! I used stickles on her dress. I cut the ovals with my Coluzzle and added the dew drops from Ellen Hutson's store. ( I love these soooo much! I bought 6 different colors). The patterned paper is from Mary Ann' s Etsy shop.


So, an update on Cortney's chair. We are arranging a meeting with her OT, PT, and the vendor next week. Hopefully something will get straightened out!
