Another Sweet Birthday Card!

Happy Thursday Friends!!! Hope you enjoyed my creations yesterday... i have another one to share with you today... didn't get as much crafting as i wanted done the last 2 days... at the very last minute, we decided to have a little "water" gathering for DD#1's 7th birthday... her bday is actually on Sunday, but because it was so last minute, we're not making her party until next Saturday... so i've been trying to get things for that... didn't have time to make invites so i had to get store bought ones... ugh, can't believe that... guess that's what happens when we wait... eek!

and then i got hit with another obstacle and i need to fly over to Oahu for a fetal echo... so in the midst of all else, i've been trying to schedule flights for myself and the DH... thankfully all is confirmed and we'll be flying over next Fridayfor the day... the really sad thing about it, i'll be missing DD#1's May Day program AGAIN! for the 2nd year in a row.... this is when i say, "why me?!" i hope she understands that the Dr.'s need to check on her baby brother and that she'll forgive me for it... these are the times i feel like a yucky mother.... =(

alright, enough with the sadness... this is the 2nd card i made for DD#1 in celebration of her birthday!!
based on a few challenges, i created this cutie... i used Flutter Anya from TGF because she is just so CUTE! i love the color combo and the little sparkle in her wings... i even embossed the yellow strip, can't really tell from the photo though... a few rhinestones and dew drops... hope she likes it!! here's the challenges i used for my card:

1. Club Anya & Friends - Saturday Sketch
2. Roses on Paper #37 - Color challenge ~ Pink, Orange and Yellow
3. Anyone for Anya - Luck Numbers

well, it's off to do some errands and hopefully have a little playtime in the craftroom... Thanks for visiting today and hope you'll come back soon... Muah!
