Penelope's Party Wagon

Hello, all! I just realized that I completely forgot to draw a winner for the B 'n W Snowbabies Collection Blog Hop. Again, Mr. Random.org helped me on this. Here is his pick:
The lucky winner of the lovely Snowball Snowbaby is Kathy Martin!!!! Congratulations, Kathy! Please email me with your snail mail! =)

On to today's card. I made this card for my brother's oldest daughter's 12th(??!!) birthday at the end of September.


I can't believe that she is 12 already! I still remember seeing her on the day that she was born. She was so tiny and now she is probably taller than me. Sigh... time really flies.


I used the adorable Penelope's Party Wagon illustrated by Mo Manning for this card.


The patterned paper is from the lovely Fly A Kite collection by October Afternoon. The seam binding is dyed with barn door and the sentiment stamp is from the Butterfly Dreams set by Papertrey Ink.

It turned out that the sneezing yesterday was probably just an allergy. I feel perfectly fine today. Thanks to all the sweet well wishes you sent me!! =)

Hope you have a lovely day!



Thanks for stopping by!

Alice this is gorgeous, fantastic colouring on such a sweetie of an image... glad to hear that you are feeling better today...xx

Hi there,

Your card is awesome as usual. I wish you would do tutorials on copic colouring as your images are fantastic.

Also, wanted to ask you what size card is this? I'm guessing it's not the standard A2 size. And do you then make all the envelopes to fit it or is there somewhere I can purchase ready made square envelopes?

Thanks!
