A little birdie told me...................

Hello Magnolia Lovers,

Almost the weekend, hope you've had a great week and found time to fit in some stamping. I made this for a little boy going into to hospital and was under strict instructions to make it bright and cheery without looking girly. Well the bright & cheery was easy but I always struggle wanting to add flowers, bows and sparkle, it always seems to be missing something without them. You may recognise the little frog, he hops from card to card. How cute is that little bird. I chose Edwin with cap as he looks just like our ginger haired little Jake.
