Seize the Birthday (STB#14) - Sweet 13th

Today is my precious daughter's 13th birthday.  It is such a happy and sad day for me as my baby is now a teenager.  How does the time go by so fast? How did she go from being a chubby cheeked cherub with curly, light blond hair and big blue eyes to a stunning young lady who is nearly two inches taller than me already?  How very blessed I've been to experience the miracle that is my little girl.  When I was little and behaving badly (hard to believe I know) my mom would say "I hope you have a little girl just like you some day!"  Well...I'm happy to say that I did :o) My girl may not look like me but she is definitely my daughter   with her fierce independence, big booming laughter and sweet caring heart :o). Oh... and she can be a bit naughty sometimes too - but I still love her soooo much!

My sweet girl has a passion for cupcakes - so of course her birthday card needs to reflect that for her as well. She says when she grows up she wants to have a bakery - one that specializes in cupcakes of all kinds.  We've had some interesting experiments in the past couple of years. Some really delicious and some....well... not so much :o) 

I used the sketch from Seize the Birthday to make this card (see below):

In a continued effort to use up some of my designer paper stash, I've used some retired SU papers.  I also had a whole sheet of these cupcake stickers that I had bought to use on a scrapbook page ages ago. Decided to use some of them in place of the stars in the sketch since they haven't made their way unto a scrapbook page yet.  

Thanks for stopping by today to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time.... hugs and happy crafting!
