Happy 18th Birthday


Today was my niece's 18th birthday party, so I had to make her a card for the special occasion. I wanted to make sure is was mature, but still fun. I hope she liked it (I know she liked what was in it! Who doesn't like money!?!?). I asked my sister what to get her and she said she could use money to help pay for her Summer classes since financial won't start until Fall term. I thought, "What a great idea." Well, after cake I asked my niece what she plans to do with the birthday money and her answer was "Spring Break, of course." I guess you're only 18 once.
My Mind's Eye ~ Fine and Dandy paper stack
Hannah Montana cartridge ~ 18 cut at 1 3/4"
brown ribbon
green gems
Cardz TV stamp ~ "Make a Wish" set
brown ink


I have a small request or two ~

1. Please consider turning off word verification. Commenting can become frustrating since the verification image is difficult to read at times. If you do not know how, just ask. I can post a message with directions.

2. Use the new Linky box (right side bar) to follow since changes are approaching quickly. I don't want to loose contact with my crafty friends! If I haven't signed up for yours, PLEASE let me know too. I will head on over and register. THANKS!

Lots of events approaching in March, so be sure to come back often.

Stay Creative,


  1. Great birthday card for your niece... Simple but pretty...
    I agree with that word verification it drives me crazy most of the times trying to figure out the letters I hope they do away it with permanently.
    Have a great Sunday....

  2. Great birthday card- I love the patterned paper! I am now following you on linky! Thanks for making the comment to about word verification- that is very frustrating to leave comments when you can't even read the little box (I know there were times when I had to redo it 3 or 4 times before I read it right!) :)Amy

    This is a very beautiful Birthday card, I think you're niece like that very much. Beautiful colors.

  5. This is gorgeous, Georgiana!! I love the beautiful papers you used!! So pretty!! And I so agree with you regarding word verification. It is so frustrating, especially now that Google has made it two nonsensical words...I struggle with it. I hope people read this and turn it off. And I'm now following you via linky, too :)

  14. I really like this card. The patterns are so busy but the card really works well. I was recently pondering using some scraps to make a card similar to this sketch. It is a great card to use up left over pieces.

  15. Oh, how beautiful!!!

    Yep, I hate that word verification things too!!! I really do! Mine's off! Unfortunately, though, I'm really getting hit with Spam!!! Why couldn't/can't Google Blogger just leave well enough alone!!! Went from annoying to worst!!!
