Some Birdy Loves Anna!


The minute I saw this gorgeous image, New Friends, illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design, I immediately thought it looked just like my five-year old granddaughter, Anna!    

Here are a couple of quick photos of Anna to show you.    This is one of my favorites from her recent dress-up tea/birthday party  . . .



and another at the beach, showing a side view just like the Elisabeth Bell image ~ Seriously!  I can’t believe how much they look alike . . .  maybe it’s the cute little noses!    🙂



Here’s the full card, featuring my Anna!  



Hopefully, by the time this card is posted here,  it will be on it’s way to her in sunny Florida, letting Anna know how much grandma misses her!!!   

I really had fun with this one – the dp, which I love, is from October Afternoon.  I used Martha Stewart punches for the grass and the “birds on a wire”.   The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.  

Thanks for stopping by today and putting up with my gushing about another of my beautiful grandkids!!
