Happy Weekend Everyone!
It's a busy time of the year for me in preparing for the several Fall craft shows I like to participate in. And it's also time for one of my favorite neighborhood young ladies birthday! You've seen Ms. Olivia & her sister, Ms. Emily, from time to time on my blog and this week Ms. Olivia is THIRTEEN!
WOW! She was only a year old when we moved into the neighborhood and Emily wasn't even born yet. We've really enjoyed watching these lovely young ladies grow! And, how honored are we to always be invited to their family birthday parties. I always try to make a SPECIAL card that reflects WHO they are from year to year and here's what I've come up with for Ms. Olivia today.
I recently ordered a couple of the new Ken Oliver 'color burst' sets and thought I'd give them a try today! LOVE how the backgrounds turned out ... such beautiful color and I think Ms. "O" (as we call her) will love it! The 13 background panel was computer generated in Word10 and the Happy Birthday die I used is Creative Expressions 'Sue Wilson'.
Challenges to share in:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #100 - Celebrations
Crafty Catz Challenge - Special Occasions
Creative Artiste Challenge #6 - Anything Goes
Creative Corner Challenge - Party Time
Unfortunately we won't be able to join the party this evening.
I'm hosting a surprise Retirement party for another friend ... but hopefully I'll get home in time to pop over for a piece of cake! LOL
I'd better get movin' ... lots to do before heading out this afternoon!
Thanks for stopping by!
As Always . . .
