Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen

Published October 18, 2011 by isisimaginings

Yesterday, my beloved niece & no. 1 Goddaughter turned sixteen. It’s hard to believe that it’s sixteen years since I first saw her, lying in her cot at the foot of my sister’s hospital bed. She had a shock of jet black hair & as she lay there staring at me I fell in love. Since that day, she has given our family endless joy & one or two shocks, such as the day she wandered off in a department store, while holidaying with me. I found her within a few minutes, but boy, was I a wreck. She, of course, was fine & having a great time choosing clothes to try on.

She is now a beautiful young woman; incredibly smart, extremely talented, witty & wonderful to spend time with. I am so, so proud of her & I love her, to the end of the universe & beyond.

This is the card I made for her. The cardstock is a ‘tent card’ from Create & Craft
I used Kraft card as a mat & layered embossed paper from Kanban’s Industriana paper pad. The stamp, also from Kanban, was stamped onto Neenah Solar white card – from Crafters’ Companion – & coloured with Promarkers. I need to practice a LOT more with the Promarkers, I still can’t get the smooth, line free appearance others achieve. The flower & leaves are made from Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper, cut with PaperArtsy dies & coloured with Distress Inks.

That’s all for today, wishing everyone a great week.

Love & light.
