Happy Birthday Morgan!!

After talking with my granddaughter Morgan earlier this evening, I learned she received her birthday card today so it's now safe to share it with you all.

Morgan (Mo) will be 17 on Monday (oh where has the time gone???) and since her Pappy & I will be at the Cleveland Clinic instead of sharing your special day, I wanted to be sure to get something in the mail to her right away. She said she really liked the card and I'm sure she'll make good use of the gift card inside too ... can always use gas money at this age!!

I must share with you Morgan's only request for her birthday and that was to have her Pappy healthy again and to be there for her 18th birthday. Our sweet "little girl" has become such a warm, caring young woman ... we couldn't be prouder of her!!!

This sweet Sugar Nellie image so reminds me of Morgan when she was little that I just had to use it for her card. I used Stampscapes & Ala Art images to create the sky & grass for the background panel which was die cut using the Spellbinder Label One die. My card base is Eggplant with a turquoise Martha Stewart border punched mat panel. After stamping my image using Versafine Black I colored it with SU watercolor pencils and blender pen. I used my swivel craft knife to cut out the image and popped it up using dimensional tape. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch which I added a little Stickles to for added sparkle. The final feature was a touch of gingham ribbon.



  1. This is such an adorable card!!! Love your coloring, the image and your colors!! Beautiful!!

  2. Thanks Mom. I think the thing that reminds us the most of Mo is the "hata". Yea it's hard to believe she's 17. Sad time really..happy for her..sad for me. One year closer to her moving on :(

  3. What a sweet sweet card - I know she just loves it (and the gas money too). Love your image and the colors - so pretty!

  4. Such a sweet card! Happy birthday to Morgan! *waving frantically over the state line!*
