'Our Baby Girl is 17!!'

Sorry my card is late, Mr Blogger obviously doesn't like me at the moment as I had scheduled this for 10am yesterday. I wouldn't have noticed, but I came on to send a picture over to a friend!

On the 23rd of this month our baby girl Danni turns 17.....I can't quite believe it, it is so true when they say that they grow up so fast!! It's really strange because I can still remember the pain & Nige, my mom & the midwife saying push, while they were sharing out Jelly Babies!!!!
Anyhoos todays creation has been made for Danni's birthday & for my DT card for My Time To Craft, where this week the theme is...

CHARMING!

so get out your long neglected 'charms' & join in with us!

As I have said above this card is for our Danni's 17th. She is absolutely Pokemon mad, watches it all the time, got Pokemon games etc.... so I thought this image by the wonderful Sureya was perfect!


I tried to get her hair the same as our Danni's, but the reds not dark enough & she has more black on the ends of hers. Oh well I tried lol....I didn't want to keep adding to it, in case I messed it up!

"Where does the time go" stunning is your card and the image is brilliant lovely colour and layout too Some funny moments to remember when giving birth l was given some water and it was passed to my husband to give me and he drank it.....lol xx

Janice said...

I think Danni will love this is she loves her Pokemon - didn't realise they were still on the go! So next question - when do the driving lessons start!!! If she's like Colin, it will be on her Birthday! Back to the card now, it's super Shell, amazing colouring - especially the hair - maybe not the shade you wanted but still fab! Enjoy the Birthday next week, Jx
