The Smallest Things....

This fortnight's challenge at at As You Like It Challenge is to use your favourite book as inspiration. The earliest book that I fell in love with is Winnie the Pooh, by A. A. Milne.

So both my projects today are
   1) for a child,
   2) contain a quote by the Silly Old Bear himself, and
   3) feature a cute bear.

I hope you like them.  There's a baby girl card, and a baby boy wall hanger.






Card Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • Allsorts - Flower Power
  • Cure Card Thursday - Add a quote (A.A. Milne)
  • The Ribbon Girl - Masculine
  • Bunny Zoe - Furry Friends
  • Creative Inspirations - Male Creations (baby boy hanger)
  • Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Favourite Technique/Product (I LOVE watercolour painting with DI inks and die cuts (including this great SSS Star Parade die that I've not used much before!).  I also love making gift/wallhangers and shaped cards)
Happy crafting
Annette

Oh WOW Annette!!! I love BOTH of these creations equally....... they are coloured so beautifully and such perfect designs!

I think the first book I remember was an Enid Blyton one called Josie, Click and Bun... about a little girl, a little mouse... and a little rabit. I'm sure LOTV images would be perfect for it!!
