Today is my daughter Cassidy's 18th birthday - born on Earth Day. :) She's my baby, and my best friend, and she's 3000 miles away from me right now. It's her first birthday away from us, and we miss her so much. She'll be back in a few weeks, but it's hard being away! I made her this special card, which I can share because she got her birthday package on Saturday. :) So I'm entering it into the following challenges, because I think it's extra-special:
The stamp is from Saturated Canary (I love that Cass has been reading a lot lately), and I had to add the 2 kitties from Digi Darla to represent Cubby & Oliver, as Cass is super obsessed with cats. :) I spent a lot of time coloring her hair and I love how it came out. I added freckles, of course, and the sentiment is from Desert Diva. Papers are from My Mind's Eye. The big pink "C" is a sticky-backed chipboard piece with gemstones.
I also have a card for the:
In the spirit of Earth Day, I used all papers from my stash. That stamp is from All That Scraps called Sweet November Bufly. The sticker was also in my stash, it feels good to clean stuff out! I put together a big box of stuff I want to list on a local trading site, too - I'll donate it to the right people, but I wouldn't mind getting a box of fruits or vegetables in return. It's such a great way to live, bartering and trading. We hope to do more of it when we have an abundance of fruit & veggies from our own garden. Have a great week, my friends. Peace.
Happy Birthday Cass!ReplyDelete
