Happy Birthday - another teen in the house!

Hi everyone.  Hope your week is going well.  Well, my second daughter is turning 13 today!  Two teens in the house and a perimenopausal woman - no wonder Andy is in Winnipeg LOL!

So, it's Emily's birthday, and I am just amazed at where the time has gone, these past years.  No more my baby but a young lady :-)

I have so been enjoying making these long tall cards, that I had to go with the inspiration from those and make Emily's card.  I used another of Nikky's new digi stamps at Polkadoodles, this one is called Dollie Daydream - Birthday and is available for download, along with lots of other new individual digis in this collection.  Nikky also has the new Polkadoodles Digistore on Etsy up and running.  Why not go along and take a look.

Papers and the little stack of presents, were from the Dollie Daydream - Girl Talk Cd.  The papers that I used for the faux paper piecing, on her top and jeans, were from the Dollie Daydream - Goes East Cd, they just worked perfectly for those clothes.

I popped up the presents and Dollie to add some depth.  I used my pencils to colour everything, except the clothes.

Here she is in closeup - do you see the yummy cupcake she is holding, mmmm!

For the inside I used the same papers as the outside - as you should know me by now :-)  Also using one of the scrolls for the sentiment.

Well, that's it for today.  I have still a couple more of the oriental cards to share with you over the next week. Hope you'll stop on by.

I am making Emily's favourite meal for supper - Spaghetti Bolognese, garlic bread and I suppose I will have to get her a cake ;-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  4. Wish Emily a happy birthday! What a lovely card to give her- completely appropriate for the new teen. Three of you in the house... I'm a twin so my mom "graduated" two of us on the same day. I'm wondering whether it was tougher when we were babies (all that work!) or when we were teens (hormones bouncing off each other?!). Have fun today. Keep those tall cards coming.
