Its Mum's birthday next week and I've been saving this image for her card. Its from one of my copyright-free books and as soon as I saw it I shouted "Its Us!" because it really does look like the artist has drawn me and my three sisters - a little enhanced and many years ago of course! I'd love to know whether it was for a book or just an illustration for a magazine. The only book I can think of is Little Women but they don't really look like Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy do they.

My new Papertrey stamps arrived yesterday - just in time for this card. I've used the new Garden Variety set for the border. And the lovely sentiment is from the 2010 Anniversary set which also arrived yesterday - aren't I lucky! They are both gorgeous sets.

And in case this image reminds you of your family too, I'm posting it below. I'd love to see if you use it in a project.

  2. that is a lovely image and it's so fitting with your story. Love how you incorporated the Garden Variety with the Anniv. set.

  3. This is so adorable Ann, I love how you coloured these sweet girls. The floral border and sentiment fits perfectly with the style of this card, your mum will love it!

  4. The birthday card you made is just lovely!

  5. Lovely sweet litttle girls, were they really so sweet?

  6. What a little beauty of a card, Ann, I love that sweet picture and your wonderful coloring!

  7. I'm way behind in my blog reading so please excuse my lateness. This is a beautiful card! Love the soft row of flowers below the images of the girls. Lovely coloring. I'm sure your mother appreciated this.
