There is big excitemene in our house this morning, the girls are off to their FIRST sleepover tonight...it is Maddy's BESTEST friend's birthday...Sarah...Sarah and her family have been good family friends since Jacob and Bronte were at Preschool with the eldest daughter Jess...so it is 'BESTIES' (as the girls say) all around!
Maddy came home from school yesterday afternoon and 'whipped up' this card - literally!! She used one of the images that was in our HUGE RAK from Peggy (aka Marilyn Prestonn aka Aunty Giggles) and coloured in in with glitter pens - as usual the sparkle doesn't show up! The sentiment is handwritten with the glitter pens as well. She added flowers that came from Aunty Pat Smethers, a few brads and some pretty spotted ribbon and - wha-la...one pretty card...she is a quick card maker - not like her Mum...I take a while to get it together, think about it, play around with papers and embellishments and then finalise everything at the letter part of the day...
You may be able to see in the background how the seasons are changing here - this photo is taken in our front verandah and the trees outside and losing all their leaves....autumn is here and winter nor too far away.....
Thank you for looking and for your comments of encouragement for Maddy....she LOVES reading them and hearing what you think...apparently Mum's have to say it is good...that's what they do...so I guess my opinion isn't without bias!! LOL!!
Have a great day!

Maddy, what a great card and your mum said you put it together so fast. Not like us grown ups who take forever questioning ourselves. You know what you want and you do it and that's that. I like that about you!!! I see it's going to be winter soon. It's turning into summer here in the good ole' USA east coast. Keep on making those cards and posting Maddy . . . TFS!
