An 18th Birthday Card!

This Saturday marks the 18th birthday of one of my daughter's friends. The girls have been friends - on and off like most kids! - since they were at kindergarten together 14 years ago!!!! Boy does that make me feel old!!!! I recently bought the Miss Anya Collection from The Greeting Farm after being enabled by my friend Lisa over at Craft's Meow - she sooo had to twist my arm ; ) - LOL! This set of 3 is sooo perfect for teenage girls - my daughter loved them so figured her friends would too. I've coloured this with a combination of Copics and a cheaper version of marker - I need to hone my skills before I go all out with buying Copics! I've used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background, and to cut the numbers and purple flower. Colours are Cameo Coral, Real Red and Elegant Eggplant.

I've been waiting to see your Miss Anya creations!!! I can't help but be an enabler... I just LOVE The Greeting Farm stamps. It's an addiction, but what a way to go!

And you so DO NOT need to hone your coloring skills. Are you kidding? You've got it down, my friend!

Okay, I've managed to reduce my backlog of blog reading from 147 to 116. I'm beat! Such fun to see everything and catch up, but I think I'm going to call it a night.

Lots of love and hugs,
Lisa
