Stacey's Stamping Stage and Seize the Birthday #20 and A Blog Named Hero #27



There is still a bit of time left to submit a birthday card to Stacey's Stamping Stage Birthday Linky Party.  I think that staying up chaperoning from daughter's sweet 16 WAY past my bedtime last night has thrown my sleeping pattern off because I am dead tired and yet I am up at 1:00 in the morning making a birthday card!   I haven't played Seize the Birthday in a while and I had to play along with Stacey's Linky Party too.   I am also submitting this to the current A Blog Named Hero challenge. 

I realized last night that any pictures I have on my daughter from the last year, she is with someone else.  So perfect opportunity to take a photo of her on her birthday.













Cardstock:  White, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Large Cupcake Cling (Hero Arts) Stylish Sentiments Birthday (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Banner Borders (Papertrey Ink)
other: assorted Copics, yellow sequins, heart punch

This card is fantastic! I totally want that giant cupcake now. :) It is absolutely perfect for the sketch. What a beautiful girl (and handsome son) you have. It's fun to see pictures of them...they've both reached some major (and exciting) milestones in their lives this year. (P.S. We must be on at the same time today...lol...thanks for your sweet comments.)
