I Spy YNS Saturday – Fairy Tale House

This week we spied a card by Maggie on Instagram, where she goes by rahzicrafts.

 

Maggie created a magical garden for the mouse from Fairytale Friends to live.   What detailed coloring, from the path to the grass and the mushroom house.   Truly an all around wonderful card and the perfect way to send happiness.

Check out more of Maggie’s creations in her Instagram gallery: rahzicrafts.
