Happy mail card and picture of my kids :)

Hi people!!

It's been a couple of days but here I am again with a card!!! I have had Charlotte with a large letter by Alison Acton for Whiff of Joy for ages but never got around to actually inking her... and she is so cute that there really isn't any excuse for that :). So since I had to make a thank you card for my little brother and my SIL who came to visit last weekend I finally pulled little Charlotte out and here is the result:Isn't she lovely? The papers are Basic Grey Olivia and some soft pink cardstock from stash. The flowers were punched with my small EK Success Retro Flower Punch and the centers were done with liquid pearls. The butterfly was punched with my Martha Steward 3 in 1 Butterfly punch and the small pearl dots were done with my Perlen Pen Ice White. The sentiment on the envelope came with the stamp Charlotte riding on a pigeon, from the same collection by Alison Acton. And all the different shapes were cut using different sets of Nestabilities. Here is a close up of the image:
Coloring was completely done with my Copics, I'll give you the color numbers at the end of this post :). Charlotte was 3D paperpieced and I did a side view picture because I didn't think my normal pictures showed this very well:
Well that's it for this card. It's been awhile since I showed my three sweeties on my blog and since I took some very cute pics yesterday (remember I'm their mum so I'm very easy pleased :) ), here are from left to right Amy, Leon and Dyanne:
So funny, the girls aren't anything alike, not only in looks but also in personality :).

That's it for me I guess! Take care everybody, hope to be back soon! I'll just leave you with the Copics I used.
