Sarah's 4th Birthday

Our Inventory Challenge this week is to use a furry friend.  Do you remember when you were a kid and got a stuffed rabbit for Easter?   They were stiff as can be with ears standing straight up!  Mama always got us kids one of those rabbits every Easter and claimed the Easter Bunny brought them. We absolutely adored  those animals!  Now my grand babies have these natural lookin' soft and cuddly stuffed rabbits.  Now I have a confession to make, I think Miss Tilda got into her Mama's makeup and put on too much rouge.  Oh well she thinks she looks purrty.  I think she needs to take lessons from Suzanne Dean in coloring up faces.

It is my youngest granddaughter's 4th birthday and I made this card just for Miss Sarah.  Now she is purrty!  Purrty smart too!!!

My fellow team mates have posted cards using furry friends too and you are invited to take a peek!

Thanks for visiting my blog today and I sure appreciate your comments!

Absolutely fabulous, Sandy! You've made a gorgeous card and I love the way you used two different die shapes for Ms. Tilda! When I was a kid we only got chocolate bunnies and I always ate the ears first! How fun! I thing Sarah is going to love this gorgeous card from her grandma! Beautiful work...X0X Barb

Goodness Sandy, wow you girls are sure teaching me a lot about cards and coloring.. I am so very proud that I was able to join cause I see and learn something new each week from each of you.. I adore your use of different die cuts on the front, your use of colors and the inside, importing your picture of your adorable granddaughter and the picture on the bottom... so adorable.. so sweet, so different. a beautiful card.

Iulia said...

Hi, Sandy! Loo who's talking about getting tired to scroll down:)) It too me forever to get here:).
Your card is simply a delight for my eyes, Sandy! I love girlie cards and this one is just as adorable as it can get. Great coloring, Sandy , stop whining; she's got just enough red on her lovely face! I adore the way she looks! Also love those DP you've layered in such a clever way and the layered nesties.
Gorgeous flower too!
Your sweet Sarah's adorable. I just love fair haired little girls, you lucky grandma!
Thanks again for the lovely funny story! You should sit and write some stories too. You really have loads of talent and which is more important, something to say!
hugs, Iulia

Candy said...

I'm late again Sandy :o(
I thought you told me you couldn't make a pretty card?
Well. you were wrong. This one is GORGEOUS inside and out!! What's the matter with Tilda's cheeks - I love them. They look like little girl cheeks who have been out playing - so rosy and healthy. I think you are fooling with us now!
Seriously - beautiful papers - great colouring and design. Inside is as sweet as can be and won't your granddaughter be thrilled when she opens it up and sees a picture of herself in there!!!
Hugs, Candy

Wow Sandy, beautiful card. I don't know how I missed this one before. I love the storyline behind the front image, especially the Suzanne reference, that was funny. And then the inside is just so beautiful! Your granddaughter is so pretty! And I love the stamp at the bottom of the page. Looks great!
