My Daughter's CAS Birthday Card


My leopard wishing my daughter would hurry up and wake up 
so we can get on with celebrating her birthday!

Here is my daughter's birthday card for her 26th year!  She is still an adorable,
young, pretty and pleasant young lady!
 I am SO VERY PROUD of - and she loves colour, bright colours in a bright world,
 so I tried to give it to her with this card.  [plus a "few" - ahem - birthday gifts]

FRONT - notice I forgot my 'h' in birthday?  I was so caught up trying to write
 in a fun style that I misspelled the word, lol. 

Supplies:  Heidi Swapp cardstock and circle punch, Sizzlits 'Cherish' alphabet dies,
 markers, chalk, brad, and sewing machine.

This is a pretty easy card to whip up - white base, cut out some colourful alphabets and randomly
 punch a bunch of circles from pretty cardstock. Add a heart accent, brads, glitter...then use 
your own hand to print out a word or two. You can opt as I did to add more colour with
sweeping brushes of chalk!  Pretty easy.  You can sew on the circles as I did [because I have
been dying to try that look!!]...or just glue them on. 
I found it all very fun - its like bringing out your inner child :)


....continued to just have a fun time expressing my "love you" using alphabet letters,
 a heart and the same fun style lettering by hand.  So fast'n'easy to just slap a wide band of glitter glue
onto heavy cardstock ( 110 lb - so the moisture in the glitter glue won't buckle the paper). 
More random choices of colour - pretty! 

She loved it :)
And I love her.
