Movie Character, Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins – insightful, delightful, and a little cheeky.  She is “practically perfect in every way” and taught children to add a little fun into the drudgery of everyday chores; hence, a Spoonful of Sugar.

As much as I enjoy the original 1964 Mary Poppins movie starring Julie Andrews, I equally enjoy the 2013 movie called Saving Mr. Banks.  This tells a story of the author of Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers, who held the fictional characters very close to her heart.  It took 20 years for Walt Disney to persuade her sell her rights to the book and let it be made into this iconic movie.  I’ve been playing around with drawing whimsical human forms in a practice sketchbook, and Mary was fun to create.

Disney Cards

Mickey and Minnie have brought many smiles to kids (and adults!) around the world and I hope these cards will, too.  One of my friends, Linda, let me borrow her Disney Cricut cartridge and I have been taking full advantage of it. Below are a few of the designs and I am still working on a couple more.

I found the Disney washi tape used on the first four cards at JoAnn’s in the clearance section – what a score!

Julie, did I do okay? 🙂 Have a Happy Day!!
