So Sweet 16 card

Remember my beautiful granddaughter, Shaye, who just went to Homecoming (see my previous post for the full picture).......well.......today is her 16th Birthday!!!!! I can't believe that the baby of our family is actually 16 years old & now old enough to drive a car. Yikes! LOL Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!!! She's beautiful & smart & funny & just a delight to have around (well......most of the time......you know how teenagers can be........lol).

Here's the card I made for her special special day.


I wanted to use the perfect image for Shaye's card so when my dear friend Charlene made a sweet 16 birthday card for her granddaughter recently she used a darling pretty girl digital image from Crafts & Me so I just had to take a peek to see what else they had. I found this perfect image called Aliah. Her big hair reminded me of my pretty girl so I just had to get her.

She's colored with my Copics & I've added some feathers to her hair that I found at Michael's. Feathers are really the rage right now. But I think that ship has sailed for me. LOL Nothing like seeing a grandma in feathers. LOL (oh I can think of some other things to say about feathers & grandmas but I'm not "going there"......LOL)

The little charms are actually buttons I also found at Michael's. Although she better not go "clubbin"......LOL.....but she could really rock those shoes. My shoes are orthopedic.......LOL.....(not really but close to it....LOL). No more heels for this grandma..........boohoo!


I added the "Sweet 16" banner to the side of the card using some glittery letters I also found at Michael's. What would I do without my good friends Michael & Joann! LOL Oh and I'm so excited that we're getting a Hobby Lobby in southern California this Friday. YAY!!! Finally!!! LOL

**Note**She loved the card! aaawww....makes it all worthwhile! :)
