Crafty Sentiments Designs Monthly Challenge

Happy Birthday to my daughter, Happy Birthday to my daughter! 
My daughter Hannah turned 11 yrs old yesterday, April 9! 
Wow.....11 yrs have passed. I have watched my baby grow and grow and grow and now she is almost as tall as me. She has taken over my ice skates and my spring jacket. She is not physically my baby anymore, but she will always be my baby in my heart! 
We went to the big city on April 7 to celebrate her 'party'. She took a friend. ONE friend. And I carted them to go shopping, swimming and to a movie! 
They had a blast! 


Today brings us a new challenge at  Crafty Sentiments Designs Monthly Challenge Blog!
Our theme this month is very appropriate for the season being 


I've used one of the new releases from the Crafty Sentiments Designs Store called My Best Friend. In fact, I think he is available for purchase TODAY along with all the other new releases! 
Colored with copics. 
I used my Whimsy flag die and mini postage stamp die; 
as well as some of my block letters and puppy dog ribbon! 

Funny story about this little fella, I colored this stamp while in the backseat of my van after it broke down on the side of a Major Highway last week ! Grrr....there I was driving along when all of a sudden the  van started to slow down despite me pressing on the gas, then it started to buck.....I had just enough steering left to get me to the side of the road before it went KAPUTS! 
So I called CAA, didn't know exactly where I was, so I pulled out the binoculars (yes we have binoculars in our van) and read the big green sign ahead of me, that said "Elie. Ste. Agathe"......PHEW.....a landmark! 
Then I realized the battery on my phone was dying, so I went to plug it into my laptop, and low and behold my laptop battery had 5% life left!! ACK!! 
NOTE TO SELF: charge phone and laptop before taking on a 4 hr ride! 
So I climbed into the back seat of my now freezing van and got out my copics! 

Thank so much for stopping by today and hope to see you at the MONTHLY challenge as well as the Crafty Sentiments Designs Weekly Challenge !!

What a great card! The image is so cute. Great colouring! And I am loving all the roughed up papers. The alpha beads make a great trim.

Sounds like an awesome day with your daughter. She will have more great memories of her special trip with just the three of you than she would have with a whole house full! I loved those days with my daughter.
