Mini Cards

Hi Everyone! The last couple days have been kinda crazy around my house. My energy filled 3 year old had a big fall and ended up with 4 stitches in the back of his head on Tuesday night. He is doing well but of coarse I'm still rattled and I've been chasing after him trying to slow him down so he can recover. :)

Today on the Penny Black blog we are featuring mini cards (half of an A2 or 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"). All of the design team members have cards posted so its a fun post! I love being part of such a talented and diverse design team!

On my second mini I created a felt tree inspired by the line of Christmas trees called "Little Trees". The whimsical shape was easy to cut out by hand and I added stitching and pearls for decorations.

I hope you have a great day!

Gorgeous mini cards, Ashley! I love all the fine details on both of them...so much eye candy to be had (that stitching on felt is amazing!)! I feel for you and your little guy! Do stay calm as the little guy is strong and he will recover in no time! Sending hugs! PS: You are doing such a super FAB job on PB!

So sorry to hear about your little boy's fall. I don't have children yet, but I can imagine how incredibly scary that must be. I sure hope he recovers soon.

Amazing cards Ashley. Hope your little guy is okay.... thankfully they bounce well at that age!.... mine are 8 and 6.5 and don't know where the time goes.... they have had their fair share of bumps and knocks.... I think the Moms get the biggest fright! Fab job on PB - loved your feature and amazing cards.
