A very Special Birthday

Today it's my Daughter's 22nd Birthday. She feels old, I guess that it's all relative, I look in the mirror, and don't recognise the lines on my face, so I feel old. I look at her, and don't know where the time has gone since she was a little girl, or a stroppy twelve year old. Whatever age I remember her at, it's always with a smile.

I will be celebrating her special day with her as this post appears. We are staying in Stoke for a couple of days, where she goes to University. I'm not sure what we are going to do, except have a lovely meal out in the evening.

I made her card using some lovely stamps from IndigoBlu; 'Ella Bella', and 'Anemone Corner'. I coloured the background with Distress Inks, stamped and embossed 'Ella Bella' in the centre, and then stamped 'Anemone Corner' in the two opposite corners. I stamped the flower sections again onto white card, coloured the flowers with Polychromos pencils, and decoupaged them. I added two little Martha Stewart butterflies, edged with Stickles, and added Stickles to the flowers and central design too.

It gets harder every year to make Megan's card, as she has had a lot of handmade cards from  me now! Hopefully she will like this one, it's pink, so I'm starting off in the right direction!
Thanks for stopping by today, xx

I hope you don't mind sharing it with Bah Humbug this week as I'm still trying to catch up after my busy weekend of demonstrating last week.

Starting off with pink has to be good - this card is beautiful and I'm sure Megan will treasure it along with all the others you've made for her. Sorry I put my Forgotten Friday link on the wrong page - senior moment!!
