Chelsea's 18th is coming!

My oldest daughter, Chelsea will be 18 this Saturday. The day that she was born is still so vivid to me! Right after I delivered her the doctor put her on my stomach and she immediately pooped! I just looked at the doctor and said to him...Is this what i have to look forward too? we both laughed.
I made this card a little early...i have a very busy week. I am leaving on Sunday to go to Florida. I am meeting my sister there and we will be visiting with my father. He lives on the ocean and the view is amazing. I'll take pictures so that i can share them with you when i come back. I need to make some Valentines' Day cards before i leave! ugghhhh

this is another Rubber Romance Diva. The owner of the company sells them on a site called, her seller name is burnt cookie. Shipping is only $2 per order. (I am not affiliated with this company at all...just like to pass on a great deal when i can!)
I opened up another new pack of dp called berry bliss and started designing around the paper. I colored her in with su markers and some water coloring...and then sponged...i just love sponging. lol

Stamps: Rubber Romance, Nan & SU Whimsical Numbers
card stock: pretty in pink, white, close to cocoa, purely pom, & DP Berry Bliss
embellies: ribbon, prima flowers, baubles, stickles

It's warm here in NY. 62 degrees, but not a pretty day. i hope that where ever you are you have sunshine!
thanks for stopping by.

I can't believe how much the card reminds me of Chelsea. It came out beautiful, just like she is.

Perfect card for the occasion. Sometimes making kids/teen cards are just has difficult to do as male cards. But you did a great job!
