Wishing......You a Happy Birthday

Hello Friends.  This afternoon we had a birthday party for my granddaughters.  This month they turn 13 and 14!  Unbelievable!  14 years ago tomorrow (Monday the 24th) I became Mamaw.  What a blessing and a wonderful journey it's been.  I love my grandchildren more than I can express, as I'm sure all you grandparents understand!  Happy Birthday Kaylee and Lexi!!!!

So here's one of the birthday card's I made.  I just love this sweet image from Whoopsi Daisy.

I used Spectrum Noir markers to color this image and added a Martha Stewart border punch strip that I had laying on my worktable (that was just the right color!).  The flowers and candles were in my stash.  I've had those candles and some birthday cakes that go with them in my stash drawer for 3 or 4 years!

Like I said, I really like this image, but I'm kind of iffy about the overall card.  I think I'll print and color it again and try another layout....sometime.

  I also broke my Gypsy this week, so I'm in mourning right now.  :-(   But it's shipped on it's way to the hospital and will hopefully be back soon.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
