Birthday!

Today is my lunch date with my little lunch buddy and she had a birthday this week.....7 years old.  Such a fun age.  I love to listen to her babble on about all the drama and fun that is her 1st grad life.  I completely biffed on her card however.....I thought I had this seriously adorable little girl birthday card until about 2 hours before I had to leave for lunch......then I realized (after much mad and panicky scrambling) that I did NOT have the card and in fact had given it to a friend who was in much the same situation a few months ago that I found myself in today.  So, really super fast and quick I made up a birthday card.  And it shows how fast I put it together.  Thank goodness my little lunch buddy is 7 and pretty agreeable because this card is not so great hahaha!  I wish I had embossed the blue panel....I feel like there is too much blue space and that a little texture would break that up.  Oh well!  Next time!


The image is a little Whippersnapper Design and one that I turn to quite often for birthday cards.  I love to color up the packages and also to pop them up on dots.  The dies are Spellbinders. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Be well,
Sheila

Hi Sheila, I love this card! Wow you are amazing, I don't know if I could have done as well as you did with this card. It sounds like your little mate loved her card. This is gorgeous.

This is so cute! Doesn't look like a quick last minute card!

This is an adorable card Sheila. I agree with Linda... it doesn't look like a last minute card to me...

Are you kidding?! You just whipped this up? Girlfriend, you continue to amaze. This is far too glamorous for a kid..... but bet she loved it. You are so dear to do this for a child.

Love how you did the layers on the left of the card & I can see why you use this stamp a lot--just adorable!
