11th birthday

Catherine is 11 today 😮 that went by so quickly. high school in September and on top of everything else – she is almost as tall as I am!
Here she is on her actual birth day…it's a long time since I made that layout as well, lol! 

She was up early, very excited to open her presents and cards this morning. I made her a card using Magnolias – her favourite 'little people' stamps!Catherineage11
I spent a long and enjoyable time making it yesterday morning (the scan is wonky, not the card!) The little sentiment stamp is from Stamps Away and fits nicely into a small nestability circle. Also managed to master the use of a border punch – you wouldn't think that would cause such difficulty but this is the first time I've managed to do it without bodging up! Lots of pink bling as welll and the layout of the card is a lift from Marlene who makes such lovely cards.

It's been a while since I made a card and I've noticed there are even more sketch and challenge blogs now than a couple of months ago which is great – I've bookmarked several and intend to have a little cardmaking session once a week.
