Good Luck in Peru!

Good evening!
We have had a wonderful day at Knowsley Safari park! Apart from Keiran falling and having to go to hospital, bless him! He banged his head really hard falling up some steps and had to go to the hospital to get checked out. Luckily, he's absolutely fine, and the staff at Knowsley were fantastic, as were the paramedics and hospital staff! We got given free tickets to go back again, too, and they've even said that Keiran can meet one of the sealions next time, as he missed out on seeing the show! How fab is that?!

Anyway, time for a card. I got a text late Saturday night for an emergency commission for 4 good luck cards for 4 ladies who are heading off to Peru to do the Inca Trail for a local children's charity. So here's what I came up with in a hurry yesterday...

I remembered that Paddington Bear is from Peru so I thought he would be the perfect good luck charm for the intrepid ladies! So I 'Googled' Paddington colouring pages and found this adorable image of our beloved bear on a perfect! I coloured him with Promarkers and cut him out. I created a cloud and grass background, added a tiny Peruvian flag to half a cocktail stick, a sentiment and some gems and voila!


Right...another rush order to make now, then bed I think! :)
