The week the tea party is for Rose and she is turning 103 years old! Rose is an artist and used to draw pictures of children for cards. So I found a coloring page online with these two vintage cuties. I printed them out and paper pieced their outfits and colored the rest with Copic markers. I wish they could have been holding Roses for Rose, but hopefully Rose like Tulips too!

Oh my goodness Miss Kathleen this is beyond adorable. I cannot begin to image how long this magnificent paper-piecing took. Your colouring is as wonderful as ever. This is precious my friend. Straight into My Favs.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

This scene reminds me of the Fun with Dick and Jane book I had as a child. Love the old fashion feel to this card. Rose will love it too. Kathleen you done good. TFS :0)

This is SO cute Kathleen and love the soft colors for her! That paper pieced jacket just made me smile. This had to take you quite a while to color it so beautifully too. She surely will smile when she receives this!
