Happy Birthday, Penny!

The years really fly by so quickly. I can't believe my baby girl turned 6 years old today. She is such a blessing to me everyday. She loves to craft, read books, play with Parkey (her stuffed giraffe), and she LOVES pirates. I'm not sure exactly when the pirate-thing started, but it was probably after she saw the show, 'Jake and the Neverland Pirates'. She'll be having a pirate themed birthday party, so I figured I'd also make her a pirate card. (With a little sparkle, of course.)

Here's the inside message with more sparkle.

Fairy Birthday

I recently purchased this fun chevron background die cut. This was my first time playing with it and I really like it. I decided to use some pretty shimmery papers for the background. Then I used some watercolor paints for this sweet little fairy. There's lots of glittery shimmer on this card. Perfect for a little girl's birthday card.

Twas the Night Before Christmas card challenge

Only one more week until Christmas! I made sure to leave myself a little crafty time to participate in the Words 2 Scrap By 'Twas the Night Before Christmas card challenge. I thought the Santas would be the perfect focal point for my card. I used a circle punch to cut them out of a sheet of patterned paper and added a little glitter pen to the glowing candle light.

Mojo Monday Sketch #427

Eek, it's been over a month since I have done a blog post. I've had very little crafty time lately. Such a busy time of year. Plus, my 5-year old daughter has been rather adventurous over the past few weeks. She's managed to bonk her head 4 times in two weeks. Once required a trip to the ER. She's just fine now, but goodness, so stressful.

I've finished my Christmas cards and even mailed them out today. But I thought I'd do just one more to go with the latest Mojo Monday sketch.
