A Card for Ellie

Hi girls. Thanks for calling in to see me. I hope all is well in your corner of blogland.  It's only fair to warn that this post is heavy on photographs (a bit of an understatement) and some of them not of the highest quality I'm afraid. The card was made for a very special little girl - my granddaughter Ellie - on her 8th Birthday. It is in the form of a book with letters at the edge of each page that spell out the word "COOL".

Photo of the closed book

The papers are all from a free CD Rom given away in Issue 30 of the Complete Cardmaking magazine. The images are all by Lili of the Valley and are coloured using my Copics. The front cover is "New Hat".

View if the inside of page 3 showing the image "Birthday Fairy"

View of the last page showing the image "Glamorous Gardening".

This was a fun little project and I really enjoyed making it. I hope you like it. Any comments you may wish to leave will be greatly appreciated. I love reading what you have to say.
Please have a great day and above all stay safe and healthy.
