For My Niece Today

Hello Everyone

The card I'm going to show you today is the card I gave to my niece, Kaylee, who is 2 today - unbelievable how time flies!!

We took Kaylee's present this afternoon - and I've not long ago de-stressed from the visit LOL!! We gave her a Peppa Pig Play Tent and Car - I think she would love playing in it, but I'm not sure how long it will last with her two older and excitable brothers around LOL!! Her older brother (who's nearly 6) was trying to fit the poles into the tent, some of the poles were on the floor and my chldren were treading on them (it's a wonder they didn't break!). When the tent was up, the two boys were rolling around and tipping it on its side, one of the poles came out of place. Luckily, it was then time for us to leave because I needed to get our car home for hubby. Gosh, I don't know how my brother and sister-in-law cope with children who are continually on the go like that!!

Anyway, to my card. I have used the Fairy Fun digi image from Karen's Doodles, and for colouring I used Promarkers, watercolour pencils, and then added a bit of sparkle with Copic Spica glitter pens. The papers are Kay and Co. I made the sentiment on the computer and used my favourite technique of going over the text with a glitter pen. The image and mat has been die cut with a Nellie Snellen die. Unfortunately, none of the sparkle shows in the photo.

I am entering this card in this week's Sketch Saturday challenge, which is the fabulous sketch I used, and also Cupcake Craft challenge, which is Dazzle Us (sorry my dazzle is not showing up!).

Hope you like my card, and I hope to be back again soon.

Love, Andrea xx
