Peekaboo - Zara's First Birthday

Good Morning, .

Today I would like to share a card for my granddaughter's first birthday which is on 3rd April, I will be busy for the next few weeks as we are hosting her party as her mum's house is not big enough.  My step-daughter phoned me yesterday to ask if 55 adults and 11 children were too many.... WHAT!!!!
I didn't have the heart to say no as she sounded so excited.... LOL I'm not too sure I am. 

Anyhow here is the card - I saw this digi a while ago and thought hey yes this is the one for Zara's card.  It is from Karen's Doodles and is called Peekaboo.  This is a large 8" card - the paper is Nitwits, I have so many I cannot work out which one is was... sorry. 

I printed the image 3 times on white card and also paper pieced the panties, the filly dress is smothered with stickles.  The heart frame around the image I designed my self on the CraftRobo (getting better at it) and I decided it looked so plain so heat embossed with clear holographic embossing powder.  It made all the difference and something I am going to be doing a lot more of.  I also cut the name and name mat on the CraftRobo. 

How can I say no to this little darling

Although at the moment I am not chuffed with her as she has passed on to me an eye infection and a raging sore throat, at least I know how she felt when I looked after her on Tuesday.
