Hippie Birthday

I can't believe my oldest daughter hit double digits earlier this month. Here is the card I made for her 10th Birthday. She is very big time into Peace signs, smile faces, hearts, flowers and all things, well "hippie", so Hippie Anya was the perfect choice for her birthday card.


Since I didn't have an appropriate sentiment stamp, I created my own saying on the computer and after a bit of searching came up with the perfect font.

She absolutely loved the card ~ and that is what makes it all worthwhile!



This card is for the following challenges:
Just Christmas and Birthday Cards - sketch
Kaboodle Doodles - 1 solid cardstock, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments
Stamp Something - use a favorite sketch (I really like this sketch for larger images)

Ink/Coloring: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics (E00, E01, E11, E25, E27, E29, R20, B21, B23, G21, G24, Y32, Y35, RV32, RV34, V93, V95)
Paper: Rose Red; Gina K Pure Luxury White; DP - DCWV (Blossoms and Butterflies)

And for some family updates......

Ashley started ballet and tap lessons this past week and was so excited ~ she had so much fun at her first class and loved shopping for her new dance wear! Of course that means one more thing to add to the calendar each week, but as long as she enjoys it ~ that's all that matters.


I had Alicia's Brownie troop bridging Ceremony this past week and they are now officially Junior Girl Scouts! I held it at a park, and was worried all day long as it was overcast and looked as though it could rain any minute, but lucky for us the weather held out, and there was no rain for the ceremony ~ always a nice thing, since wet soggy cake would not have been to appealing. It was a very nice way to begin the year.


Have a wonderful day :)
