The Citrus Birthday Fairy!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Yes, today is my little baby's 4th birthday. I can't really call her a baby any more. At three, you can still get away with it, but now that she's 4, she's a big kid now. That's what she tells me anyway. :) She keeps measuring herself to show me how much she's grown because..."I can play soccer with the big girls Mama." *tearing up* My little girl is growing up!

So in honor of my 'little one', here is the birthday card I created especially for her.

It has all the things she loves on it; Tinkerbell, fruit and lots of sparkles! Her card just so happens to tie in with this week's Twinkling Tuesday challenge. It's an inspiration one: Citrus! My little girl is nuts about her fruit! Whether it be berries, lemons, oranges or grapes. Whatever the fruit, she'll eat it till the cows come home!

So I immediately pulled this small matt pad from K&Company aptly named 'Citronella' and one of her favorite stamps in my collection - Fairy Tink from The Greeting Farm and went to work. I have been so inspired lately by the work of the Top 5 girls in the 2sketches4you Ultimate Card Showdown challenge that I channeled some of their creativity to create this starburst look behind Tink. The card also happens to use the Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC86.

If you'd like to play along with Madelynn's Twinkling Challenge this week, just create your card, upload it somewhere, and leave a comment on this week's Twinkling Tuesday blog post. If you upload it to SCS or PCP, just use the keyword MTTSC29. This week, our hostess with the mostest is the super talented Janna Hull!

Last but not least, I did promise you a picture of my little 'big' girl. :) She is our Tinkerbelle in every way, shape and form.

Happy Birthday Sydney!!

Seriously? She eats lemons?? So does Jameson!! Only he eats the whole thing, including the PEEL! We gave him one as a baby as a joke figuring he'd make a cute yucky face and next thing we knew it was gone!! Still does it! love your card. The citrus paper is really sweet and the starburst thing is really neat!
