Alphabet cards for a little girl
































This was a project for the OTT21 (one tiny thing) swap on Craftster. My partner chose "alphanumeric" as one of her themes, as she is teaching her daughter to read, and I thought a set of alphabet cards would be a fun project. Apparently the recipient liked them a lot! Thanks very much to everyone at EDM who emailed me and replied to a plea for help when I couldn't think of anything at all for V. I used watercolour pencils and a Faber Castell pen. The letters are all the same size, but some of them got resized a bit in the scanning and cropping. The cards are 3" x 3" in size and I made a little green felt pouch with an elephant button to keep them in. Hope you like them!

I can't imagine any child not enjoying this alphabet ...you've completed an auduous task in a manner they will love. It seems it would inspire them to learn and you should be congratulated...
