A Birthday Wish

It's been so long since I last posted, or created anything! It really felt good to go down into my dungeon and make this card.
This is for my daughter, Chelsea who is 19 years old today! I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday!
Last night we went out for dinner to celebrate her birthday. We had a Greek feast! very yummy, and definitely not on Weight Watchers! lol
As per tradition in our house I am making a special birthday dinner tonight. Chelsea has requested Ziti ala Vodka and Salmon with BBQ sauce. I baked a cake, omg, what a disaster, and it wouldn't be a true celebration without me making a card for her.
This is what i came up with. I felt like I was in card making 101 after being away from it for so long! I hope you like it.

Stamps...MFT, You take the cake
ink...momento black, SU markers
paper...SU close to cocoa, taken with teal, regal rose, basic white, SU retired DP
embellishments...Heidi Swapp Large Flower & flower ghost shape, flower button by Jolene, stickles, and pop ups
technique...sponging and paper piecing

My son John is really doing very well. He had plastic surgery so he should have minimal scaring on his face. We still don't have a police report. Apparently it takes up to twelve weeks to get a police report from the LAPD! We do know that the driver who hit him was arrested for DUI and there were no fatalities in the accident for which we are very thankful! I'll be going out to California next month to spend some time with him. I'll be there for St Patricks day again! However, I am not traveling with a suitcase full of corn beef this time!
I'm getting ready to go on vacation this coming Saturday. We leave on Valentines Day. Hopefully I'll be able to get some Valentines Day cards made before we leave.
Have a great day!
Smiles :)

We have now found out that the cab driver was killed in the accident. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family.
