OMG - She's 13 Today

Happy Birthday Drue
May your day be extra special and your birthday party on Saturday a blast!

Can't believe that my only granddaughter has reached her teen years and is growing up so fast and so far away. El Paso is a LONG way from Missouri so our visits are far and few inbetween.  As you all know, I'm terrible about getting things mailed in due time so to make sure she gets to see her card today I decided to share it here.  Hope you all enjoy.

I'm entering this card in my first Kenny K Challenge which is 3 DPs, 2 Ribbons, and 1 Image.  Have quite a few of these images but just haven't had a reason to color one up till now. Went a little overboard on the embellies but I like the foo foo way it turned out and yet not too childish. Of course this image is just adorable, as is Drue, with those cute dimples and blonde hair she has.

My grandchild has turned into a foxy teenager and foxy she is.  Last summer when she left she was wearing hot pink and lime green with pink (one shoe) and lime shoe laces in her other tennis shoe. Hence, the reason for the color

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Happy Birthday sweetie, we love you!  This card is in the mail with a little goodie tucked inside the tag.

Isn't it crazy how much faster our gkids grow up than our own kids did? CRAZY fast! She will love this card for sure... it totally rocks!

OH this is so cute. She`ll love it!! Sorry she`s so far away. Sucks to have family such a distance. I know. My twin is a 15hr drive from me and that`s so hard!! Glad to see you getting some cards done!!

omg gosh Carol, I've just found something else that we can share with each other. If Drue's birthday is today 24th, so is my eldest daughters. Maybe we can remind each other when the date gets nearer next year. I hope that Drue had a great day and that she's already received your card and goodie. OH it's a fun and great card for any teenager. *Hugs*
