Happy Birthday Tiara

Ok, so today is my baby's 9th birthday. I cannot believe that she's 9 already. It really does fly by. So, her card. Yeah, this was such a struggle. Remember when I said that as soon as I got a card made, I'd let you people know? Yeah, be glad you didn't see the first draft. I liked it, but then I didn't really. I actually pulled this button off of her other card to use on this one. I don't know why I struggle so much to make cards for my own girls, but I do. And the blue thing. Her favorite color is light blue. Well! Really? Not brown or pink or even green, colors I'm good at using. Nope. Blue. And then I couldn't think of a single color that goes with blue. Who can't think of a color that goes with blue? That's right folks, me. And then the card, with the blue, had to be girly. Ack! So here is a simple, light blue card for my baby girl. Phew. And apparently, that's what was blocking my mojo, cuz I made a card after this one that I actually like. Yeah, yeah. Have a little patience. I can't be rollin' out all my stuff at once. Then you could be going weeks without something new to look at.

This is absolutely stunning. One of your best! The little designs on the butterflies, the placement of everything, the color ... Truly a work of art!

Love the card. I made Tia's card yesterday - I asked Kayla what her favorite colors were and she said blue and green. Tell Tia Happy Birthday.
