Hand Me Downs


I have lusted after this image Hand Me Downs for AGES and finally purchased her when Krista offered 30% discount.....incidentally, 5 other friends fell in the shopping basket too!! I have coloured her with pro markers and Polychromo pencils and I am sooooo chuffed with how she turned out, especially her pinafore and hair!

I've used my MME Everyday Flair papers, an extremely simple layout and my well used letter stamps (that was included in a fantastic scrap booking kit I bought from Costco a while back).

I made this card for my sis (obviously!). Lindsay is a year and 10 months younger than I am so always had my 'hand-me-downs'. Some of these were lovely and I hated having to part with them, like the lovely orange polka dot dress with the pandas on bicycles around the hem......but others, like the acrylic stripy jumper she had to endure TWICE - her own one AND mine weren't so good and are a source of banter even now!! Originally I had intended to try to replicate this horrible jumper in the image, but the image is just too pretty!

So, I would like to enter the following challenges:
