Hello again friends! Last post for the evening to share the card I made for my precious
daughter. She had seen the image after I colored it up during a Live Colour Along session
with Alyce from Kit and Clowder (where I've been taking skin & hair coloring classes).
She asked me to please, please make her birthday card with it this year.
So of course I did :o)
She squealed with delight when she saw it.
I must admit that I'm pretty happy with how it turned out too.
Take a look:

It felt strange making her a wintry birthday card when her birthday was just
two days after Easter - but here's a little story about my daughter.
Our precious little girl was born nearly 6 weeks early on her Daddy's birthday.
I went into pre-term labor with her and we spent nearly two days in the hospital on meds.
In the midst of this - my husband gets either the flu or a case of food poisoning
(still not sure which it was) and has to leave me. Miraculously my labor stops and
I'm able to go home the next day. Two days later, and when my husband is better,
my labor starts again and back to the hospital we go. After a very scary situation
in which we lost her heart beat and were prepping for emergency c-section -
suddenly she decides that she is ready and she came into this world very quickly.
And...on her Daddy's birthday :o) just exactly, I'm sure, as she had always planned.
Every day since she does things in her own way and in her own time.
Oh my, you should have seen some of the outfits she would dress herself in - lol!
So, for her to have a winter birthday card on her spring birthday
just seems par for the course - and if it makes her happy, it makes me happy :o)
