a special birthday card....

Today is a special birthday... Our daughter is celebrating her 16th birthday! Oh my...where did the time go... One of my favourite stamps is from Stamping Bella..." Izzie has balloons". I coloured the image with prisma pencils.I love finishing the inside of my cards so I placed the image in the inside as well, and used the computer to finish the sentiment. I wanted to show you the quilt I made for my daughter but the picture does not do it any justice. I wanted to make her a soft pastel, cottagey quilt, but my daughter loves bright and bold colours so that is what I did! Lots of orange and teals.... I bought flannel fabric to keep her nice and warm at night..she loves that!





I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday..and once again, thank-you so much for all your comments. I love to read them and it brings such joy reading each and every one of them!
