Baby's First birthday

It's a beautiful sunny and cold fall morning here in Chicago land. And we have snow in our near future! I find as I get older, I am disliking winter more and more!

Today I am sharing a card I made for my daughter's girlfriend's daughter's first birthday. Did you get all that?!! Long story short, the girlfriend is a truly good friend to my daughter. She is always upbeat and can take you from a dark, depressing mood to laughing your butt off in 10 seconds flat! And her daughter is just as adorable as her mommy!

Everything I used on this card are scraps of this and that. Paper, cardstock, ribbon, twine and button ...I'm starting to clean out the old and bring in the new! The glitter I used on the #1 is chunky glitter from Stampin Up. I hand-drew the #1 on a piece of chipboard, cut it out, glued it up and sprinkled the glitter on it. Dressed it up with heart stick pins, bow, button and twine. Did I say this baby loves pink like her mommy?!

I have been going through old samples of sketches and cards and giving them a face lift! This is a good way to use up old papers and embellishments. It also jump-starts the creative juices!
Have a good weekend!
