Still so many birthdays...
I had a large chunk of time available on Saturday (shocking, I know!) so I sat down to make an extra special card for my baby. Well, technically she isn't the baby anymore because she now has a little sister, but even after a year with the new baby, I still think of my Taylor as my baby.
She is going to be six next Thursday (and I am a big old wreck because six seems just SO old!) so I started on her extra special card early. She is a huge fan of Olivia (both the books and the tv show) so I wanted to make a pig card, and I knew that Olivia would have to wear a red dress (if you know Olivia, you know why)
I used some K & Co patterned paper that I got on clearance at Michael's ages ago, let's hear it for using your stash! Taylor likes when I make things sparkle on cards, so I put a whole bunch of stickles all over everything and added jewels from Heidi Swapp to her dress.
So I think she'll love her extra special blinged out card. When I called in my older son to ask his opinion of the card, he got a little upset that he didn't get a special card for his birthday in February (um, I just got this cricut a few weeks ago bud!) so of course I ended up having to make a card for him too. (I'm such a pushover sometimes) So I'll probably post his card next time.
Thanks for looking!
