Penny Johnson ~ Little Belinda





Hello everyone! Fabulous weekend for me...I took my adorable grandson "Evan" (almost 3 years old) to see the movie "Winnie the Pooh." I did not watch the movie...I watched him. He was too precious in holding his popcorn with his baby hands cupped so that he would not lose a single piece of his popcorn. He laughed like he was being tickled when the "honey pot" fell on Pooh's head. My smiles could not have been more happy at seeing his excitement. Then we went to see the posters outside of the theather ("ater"). He wants to see "Puss N Boots," which comes out in November. I told him that this might be a scary movie...and he informed me that it was "only cats...big cats, little cats...noting to be afraid of." (noting spoken as a ting). What a blessing!

I am posting a Penny Johnson Stamp called "Little Belinda." This is the cutest image...I used white metallic cardstock from Paper and More for the background. The DP is from Everyday Blessings from Paper Trey Ink. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 to cut out the frame. I then colored the adorable image with my Copic Markers. I used some beaded trim from Hobby Lobby to the top and bottom of the card with a peace lilly, also from Hobby Lobby at the bottom and a MS leaf punch. Click on the picture to see more deets...

I thank you all for your time and comments! Wishing you the best!

Be still my heart! What an adorable card Velta! The image is just darling and I love these soft blue colors, but all those pearls and lacey embellishments make this one so special! And I can feel the joy you experienced in sharing that movie with your DGS! Cute :)

This is truly a precious image, Velta, and I love the trim! Sweet colors, too. Your description of your movie excursion with your grandson gave me a real "awwwww moment". I can just see him holding his popcorn with his little hands, engrossed in the movie. And his sweet reassurance about the Puss 'n Boots movie -- just darling! These are the times you and he, both, will remember.
