Words for Inspirational Card Sketches

I am on a roll today what with the pouring rain and being in the house by myself - Graham is up in Rugby today and tomorrow for work. Pulled out all the stops for this one and think it is one of my best card so far - hope you think the same.
Using Sketch No 67 from Inspirational Card Sketches, I coloured Codi from Pollycraft with my PMs. Details below.

The sentiment is something I heard some time ago in a conversation between two elderly ladies. I used Amadeus font.
Promarkers used Dusky Pink & Ivory for skin; Henna,Cinnamon & Caramel for trousers and hair and Ruby & Dusky Rose for TShirt & hat.
Pink paper from Funky Hands Wordbooks 'LoveNStuff' Extras;
Brown paper and cream pearlised paper from stash; cream paper cut using XCut edger;
Pink ribbon and brads from stash;
Stitching done by hand.


  1. Hi Sheila,
    Agree this is beautiful from you, the colours and the style, sweet. The little image is really nice, I love little cute girls, do you?
    The wee sentiment is so nice and to think two old dears said it makes it more special. Debbiexx
