Happy Birthday Paiger!

Oh how time flies, it seems like it was just yesterday my "little" niece was born. Now fast forward 11 years and here we are.  It makes me feel so old knowing the the baby is well...now not a baby. I think by next time this year, she'll be taller than me.  She's becoming quite the artist. So to help this addiction (I mean hobby) I gave her a Michaels gift card and some paint brushes. Now I just have to wait to see what she creates!
I made her a card using one of my new favorite digi stores....TIDDLY INKS. They have the most adorable images, if you don't believe me, go see for yourself.
Here's the card:
I just love these colors together and so does Paige, her room are these 2 colors (easy choice for me to decide what colors to use for her card, LOL.)
I added one of those cute "chalkboard" pins from Michaels and wrote Create on it.  I love those pins and have been wanting to use them ever since I got them this summer.
I kept the inside fairly simple, I wanted to have the colors be the focus.  And good news, Paige recieved the card and loved it!
Let me know what  you think...I'm off to watch some football now!

Paula this is a beautiful card, I love the colors too. The little dragonfly is so cute and I do like the chalkboard. Mine are too big for cards but I clip them to bags. She will love this adorable card, so pretty.
