For My Daughter

A card inspired by Freshly Made Sketches, Colour Q, CAS-ual Fridays and Simon Says Stamp [graphics below]!


My eldest daughter (5) is a spot of sweetness in my life.  (My youngest daughter is 3 and while she is starting to exhibit symptoms of sweetness, I think of her more as a spot of entertainment in my life. ;)  )

Some inking, stitching, stamping and die-cutting plus a bit of bling.

Thanks for visiting!

This is sure beautiful. I don't have any daughters, but I know what you mean by your children having differences.
