Celebration at the Castle???



No, not today anyway... Today is my birthday, but I'm headed out to get my daughter from college. We will be celebrating her 18th Birthday this weekend. She apologized today for ruining my birthday 18 years ago. I was in the Hospital the entire 24 hours of my day because they were trying to stop my labor since she wasn't due until mid-October. Actually I started the day at one hospital, and was transferred in an ambulance to the larger teaching hospital a few miles away when they realized the labor wasn't going to stop and she would probably need to go into a NICU. She held out until just after midnight so that she could have her own day. It seems like a lifetime ago. BUT, I'm proud of her and I happy with how she turned out!!

Her favorite color happens to be purple and as you know I always enjoy making purple cards.

Finished Card Size: 5.5 x 4.25
Stamps: Birthday Bundt (Stampendous) , Background Swirl(Inkadinkado),HBD (Penny Black)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip(SU), Purple (? ),White card(Georgia Pacific)

Ink:Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukenko), Basic Brown (SU)
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Other: craft paint

Now that I look at the purple one, I think I'll go back and add the Happy Birthday sentiment to this one also.

Oh shoot! I didn't get a card made/mailed! I thought your birthday was this month, but hadn't gone to verify which day (thinking it was later in the month and I had time. That's what I get for thinking.) I hope you have a marvelous birthday!!! Love both cards that you made. Happy birthday to your daughter also. :)
