Family Portrait

Hello everyone...hoping you are all having a fantastic weekend!
I made this card for the Magnolia Ink challenge calling for a family portrait using Magnolia stamps. Well, here is what I came up with.......not exactly up to the high standards of Magnolia, but it was fun to do! Don't think I will be sending it in!!!!!
The German Edwin, of course, is my husband, who is always ready for a party and beer! Had to clip his wings, though, because he is not an angel, close..... but not quite!!!! hahahaha
I'm the cook, of course and our dog Buddy is also represented. The lesser known Martha is my 90 year old mother. She probably wishes she had that much hair! Our humble Magnolia home is in the background.
Thank you for visiting. Hugs, Christina

  6. Hello Christina, your post brought my first smile on this sunday morning! How sweet your card is! I DEFINITELY would send it to Mag Ink, because it is so diffirent and interesting in style, BUT also soooooo beautifully made. In french I would say: Cette carte respire la bonne humeur, et l'esprit convivial. Sorry, I have no translation, but it is a commentary that is bright and sunny as today in Montreal.And your story is humerous and sweet at the same time. I loooove it!!!!! Thank's for starting my day with a smile!
    Hugs.

  12. Hi Christina!!! How precious is this card! I love it!!!! Your mix of stamps to represent your family is fabulous and so is your coloring! I had to giggle about your hubby's wings! Sorry I've been so absent, but my grandson goes home next weekend and I should be back full force then. Take care and hope you're doing well!!
