Whispy Notebook

It was my niece Leanne's twelfth birthday on Sunday the twelfth of August and this is a notebook I decorated to match her birthday card.  The main image is Whispy from Saturated Canary and is coloured using Promarkers.  I always think of Leanne when I see this image. 

I enjoy making matching notebooks and cards and decorating the spiral bound notebooks with ribbons is a great way of using up odd ends of ribbon or bows that went wrong.

I used the same materials on the notebook as I did on the card and details of these can be found in this posting.

The inside of the card is decorated using PSX pansy stamps and Encore metallic purple ink.

This is a photo of Leanne and her Mum taken at a wedding they were attending last weekend.

Thanks for reading
