Showing you how you can create amazing creations working with adorable ilustrations from vintage children books,,,,,,,,,,,,.First of all I am showing the cute and so unnusual caravan by Ira Roberts:
Most of you will probably be familiar with the gorgeous images o fNicecrane Designs. I was invited by Ignacio to join the Design Team, but unfortunately I was unable to (due to other DTs and my job). And then Ignacio kindly allowed me to become a 'permanent guest designer', meaning that I can put up something whenever I like or have time. I came across this lovely 'caravan' on the internet and wouldn't mind having it in our backyard! But I thought a miniature version would look cute, too, so I made a smaller version with new papers from Action:

What does that really mean anyway? Just that we are OLD? Anyway, I am focusing on the sentiment for this card. Today is a gift - it is, it really is...
Love this sentiment - I used to have it above my classroom door. It's on the inside of the card. For some reason, this sweet little girl heading down the stairs to start her day made me think of it. She is from Nicecrane Designs. Colored her with Copics and popped her off the scene.
She is from the set called These Incredible Little Girls. You may remember I used another image from that set in a wildflower seed paper project here. And here is a look at the entire set:
