Zoie's Birthday and 10,000 hits!

Wow! I have now had 10,000 hits on my blog! Thank you to everyone that visits me here in my little world and an extra huge thanks for all the encouraging comments that you leave. They really do make my day!

This is a card I made for my niece Zoie, her birthday is Monday so I need to get her card in the mail today or tomorrow. She will be eleven. I can't believe it. My brother wanted me there when she was born and I told him to make sure they called me when they were heading to the hospital so that I could make sure that I got there on time. I had a bag packed and ready to go. He called and I told my boss I was heading out as soon as I got that call. It is a three hour drive from here to there and I got to the hospital 27 minutes before she made her arrival. She gave us all a scare and spend a week or so in the NICU, but she has been a healthy little girl since then. Zoie is definitely tween and likes everything sparkly and all those other girly things. I thought this Anya would be the perfect image for her. Her favorite colors are blue and green so I picked out this paper and then colored everything to match with Copic and Prisma markers and added some sparkle to the hairband and purse with a green Spica pen. Want to know a trick I just learned? See those photo corners? I didn't have the right shade of blue paper to go with everything else so I colored a piece of paper with the same marker that colored my image with and then punched out the photo corners! Voila! Perfectly matched accents! The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado mini set and was stamped with CTMH Crystal blue ink and then I went over that with a Sakura glitter pen. Thanks for stopping by!

What fun to have been there when she was born! And of course, you're doing your best as an aunt to embarrass her and remind her of that, right? Cute card, great image for that age range.
