Happy Birthday Addison!!

We are celebrating my granddaughter Addison's 2nd birthday Saturday August 30th.  She is going through the terrible twos stage, and just had her baby brother Parker appear on the scene (born just 2 weeks back!!)  Needless to say...she is kind of being a pain in the butt, but is learning to adjust to her newly shared spotlight!!  Anyway...I made this card for her 2nd birthday.  This darling image comes from the Pure Innocence set called " Something Special Just for You".  I colored her with my promarkers, then fussy cut her out. I also stamped her crown onto gold sparkly paper & fussy cut it out and popped her up using foam tape.  The pink polka papers are from Bo Bunny, the numbers & balloon designer papers are from DCWV called The Birthday Wishes Stack.   The banners were cut using YNS Fishtail Banner Die Set.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Special Girl Designs set, and were punched out using two Stampin Up Ovals punches. I put two pink enamel dots in the left hand corner, and a heart shaped crystal on her crown from my stash.  I'm sure she won't have a clue how cute her card might be, but I sure had fun creating it!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!

Happy Birthday Shawnee

   I made this card for my granddaughter Shawnee's 7th birthday.  Unfortunately her parents, my daughter & son-in-law Emily & Jason, would be on vacation during her actual birthing day.  And my other daughter & son-in-law Elaine & Bryan would end up delivering their 2nd baby, my eighth grandchild, the weekend after when we were going to celebrate Shawnee's birthday!!  Sounds very chaotic at best...and it was!! I made this card for Shawnee at a moments notice, so I'm not exactly jumping up & down about it, but I still think it turned out cute enough.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Lacie".  I don't think it was in the birthday image category, but it was so cute, and reminded me of Shawnee...and what birthday doesn't involve ice cream!  I colored her with my Promarkers, cut her out with a Spellbinders circle die, then behind that, I joined together two Cheery Lynn Chasing Rainbows Doily die in light blue & yellow.  I finished off with a big yellow flower in the lower left & some yellow candy in each of the other corners. Hope you like it..thanks for stopping by!!
