Karleigh's Birthday

Today's card is for my niece's birthday next week...she will be 15!! I chose Peace Cat from Stamp On It (QKR Stampede's store).  I colored her with copics, glossy accents on her glasses, and silver heat embossed her necklace.  She is cut out with Stamps of Life stitched circle die and matted with SB lacy die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #119.  Digital paper from  Kellymedinastudios on Etsy (PERFECT with this image) and cs by core'dinations minty fresh pack.  The sentiment is computer generated with free pawprint and peace sign clip art, cut out with SB  circle die and matted with SB scalloped die.

Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I've been doing the last couple weeks.  My daughter started her 1st teaching job yesterday (HOORAY!) and I have been kept busy cutting things on my Cameo for her!

  5. Brenda, your card is just gorgeous and I'm sure that your niece will love it. OMG - you have a daughter that is a teacher too. I can't believe this we have parallel lives. It is so funny when I see the pictures since my daughter has similar crates that my FIL made for her. My daughter obsesses about the bulletin boards so it is too funny.

  6. Peace cat and the fab papers make this one awesome card.x
