Birthday girl, or not?

Hmmm, now I don't know!

Hi blogworld

Firstly let me say thanks so much for all the lovely comments you've left on the passing of our old lady.  I think everyone is pretty much of the same opinion - 19 is a great age for a cat and Katie had a lovely life, but it's still sad to see them go.

Emily was told last night and spent quite some time crying, she didn't want to go to school today either but I thought it was best to send her - take her mind off things.  Only thing is she wants to go dig Katie up, I think to say goodbye - hmmmm not a good idea!!

Right then, chin up and on we get.

So this is my Lili of the Valley card that I made - I thought it would go to a little friend of Emily's whose 5th birthday party we are going to at the weekend.  Then when it was finished I thought not!  So I now have another spare card, which I'm not sure if it's for a girl or woman.

Hey, ho.

Here's the card:

 Arty farty two: (trying to get the glitter on her jacket and skirt)

I used:

Lili of the Valley - Best dress
coloured with my Pro and Flex markers
(oh and inked with Cocoa for a change for a softer look)

Nestie label

First Edition - Love Letters

Anything else?
Card blank - Craftwork cards
Trim, ribbon, sentiment - from my stuff
Glamour Dust
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers

I decided to put my name forward for GDT at Lili's Little Fairies - don't think I've got a whiff of a chance, I've never won a challenge - but I thought why not!!

So see you again soon,

A challenge, or two:

Lili's Little Fairies: Flower power

Stampin for the Weekend: Challenge 18 - Feeling Floral

So lovely Sarah. I especially love that sparkle and I think that it is perfect for a little 5 year old. x

Hi Sarah, this is gorgeous Sarah. Of course I love the sweet image, you have coloured her beautifully and I love the papers and flower. I also think it would be great for a 5 year old girl.
Poor Emily, it's so hard for us to say goodbye to our pets but even harder for children to understand.
Take care
Hugs Sue

It's gorgeous Sarah and I don't think it's too old for a little girl or too young for a young lady! Beautiful colouring and I love her bling jacket Karen x
