A Little Bit Of Beatrix Potter

Good Morning bloggers, and A Happy Mother's Day for all you lovely ladies for tomorrow. As it's Saturday morning It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Ellie's turn to host and she would like to see 'Fairy Tales or Nursery Rhymes'
Here are a few ideas to help with the challenge - 3 little pigs, the Tale of Peter Rabbit, Chicken Little, The Ugly Duckling, The Little Mermaid, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Tinkerbell, Hickory Dickery Dock, Ring Around the Rosies, Frog Princess...

I chose to go with my all time Author Beatrix Potter, I consider her a Pioneer of Women, I love how she did so much to preserve the countryside, battled to get her books published in the way she wanted, and stood up for herself in time that was ruled by men.
So I have done Hunca Munca from the book The Tale Of Two Bad Mice, I also thought it was an appropriate image for a Mother's Day card.  I kept it simple and the patterened paper and border at the top was made using a free embossing folder I have.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
