I'm so happy to be back to blogging...yeah! I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday season!! My daughter celebrated her 11th birthday on Dec. 27th...WOW 11 years have passed since we were blessed with our beautiful little princess!! Emilee's favourite colour is lime green...yes lime green. She begged Daddy to paint her room lime green, she wants everything to be lime green. She LOVES lime green!! So check this out...I made this card for her birthday with lotsa' bling she loves bling...who would have thought. So I added a bunch of rhinestones to her card but I kept the balance of the card quite simple...since I know my daughter and it's all about the image. I knew the first thing she would examine was whether it looked like her. I was delighted when she opened the card and the first thing she said was "Momma it looks just like me"! Mission accomplished! I am currently totally addicted to Saturated Canary images. I think it is because everytime I look at one of them I can see my little girl, they are quirky, fun and full of vinegar....they totally speak to me. So of course I chose Ellie's Birthday from Saturated Canary for Emilee's card.
Emilee is quite the little "sewer". She has been taking sewing lessons for a year now and just loves it. Bless her little heart she has been working on my 27+year old machine at home with no complaints..well except...the odd little comment like "Momma this thing is ancient isn't it". So we decided the perfect gift for her birthday would be a new machine that she could call her own. Her she is tickled to bits with her new machine...oh and proudly showing off her card.
When I went to download the pictures of the card and Emilee I found these adorable pictures of our dogs Whisky & Lola. I thought it was a good time to share a couple more photo's with you. Emilee's other passion is taking pictures and video's. Every device we have is full with her creations and visions. I have to say that it is amazing to look at life through the eyes of a child. The quilt in the background...lime green of course is one of Emilee's creations...1st Prize at the Bolton Fall Fair this past Fall...yeah!
Sorry for such a long post!! Hope you enjoyed it!!
