Eat Your Peas!

My aunt sent me an Eat Your Peas book for my birthday last fall and I LOVED it! I just kept going back to look at it occasionally. One day, I thought it would be great to use each of the pages on a card front to make a birthday card. I'm showing these pictures with permission from Gently Spoken. I asked permission because their images are copyrighted, but I wanted to share these inspiring images with you. Pages and pages of unique expressions. I'm certain that I'll be doing other Eat Your Peas cards, and I think I'll be using this idea for creating and donating cards to our Home Health & Hospice- their wish list includes cards. Please follow any of the links to check out how Eat Your Peas can inspire and encourage you!
I used Stickles on many of the cards, just to add a bit of sparkle to enhance the images. On the card up top, I also added some adhesive-backed jewels to the centers of the flowers. Thanks to those of you who've asked about me. Christmas and New Year's were nice, we went back to my mom's after New Year's to celebrate her 60th, and then the baby got sick with a bad cold, and then my 4 year old and I did- I'm trying to recover now. I'm hoping to be back in full swing soon, and I have new stuff to share already!

Very cute! I love the "eat your peas" idea. I've seen those before and really thought they were cute!
