Natasha is two!

Our youngest grand-daughter, Natasha, was two this week, and she has a shoe and bag fetish!!  It really doesn't matter who owns the shoes or slippers - Mummy, Daddy or her brothers - she loves to try them on, and walk around the house in them.  So, of course, this image from Mo Manning, which I coloured with copic markers, was an absolute must.   We bought her a Peppa Pig pram as she is truly obsessed, and it was very funny to see her walking her baby in the pram, carrying her Peppa bag, and wearing her Dad's boots!  Her obsession with the little pink porker is monumental, and early one morning as her mum picked her up out of her cot, instead of her first words being "Hiya Mummy" as normal, she simply shouted "PIG!!"  Looking at all her Peppa birthday presents though, I think she may have been suffering from pig overload!  Even her cake had Peppa Pig on it, which she was very excited about.





















The papers and the decoupaged floral spray are Kay Miller, and the pretty lace and roses are WOC.  There are a few tiny gems on the flowers, and the circular sentiment was computer generated, and then cut out with Nesties.  The inside of the card is decorated to match the outside.

Thanks very much for coming to visit my blog.  It's lovely to hear from you all, and I really appreciate the lovely comments you leave.

xx Jill
