You Mean Everything

Were did 5 years go? If I can answer~ It went by way too fast. I remember the day so clearly, amazed that she had finally come. 9 months seemed forever and now 5 years seems like yesterday. She will always be my baby though, no matter how old she is :) Right moms :)

I hear her already 'awwwww mom, this is just so beautiful' - she is my biggest fan, I love it! I seek her every approval :) I had to have this set A Kind Word specifically this image as both my girls love to soar to the clouds on their swings. I stamped her in Stazon ink on Whisper White and used my SU Markers to color her in. A soft dusting of my Pastels Chalk kreates a bluish background. I used an oval stencil to trace the image and cut her out and then accented the edges with Lovely Lilac ink. Used my Eyelet Border Punch on my Regal Rose square to decorate my edge and then randomly stamped the small flower from the Simply Sent set in VersaMark to kreate my own designer paper. My Big Shot helped me kreate my perfect flower accent using the Little Leaves Sizzlit and Simple Flower Embosslit. Half back pearls from the Pretties Kit add a soft girlie touch. You mean everything to us Kayla, Happy 5th Birthday!

Hi Kim . . . what a touching post. Makes me reflect on my own daughter who is now 15! Your card is amazing. When this stamp set was released, Kris and I both knew it would be on your list. Beautiful coloring and I love the embosslit with it. Hugs, M

Your card is absolutely beautiful. I love the color combo and the pretty little girl. Your daughter is so adorable (both as an infant and as a 5yr old!). Thanks for sharing!

Very sweet, Kim. I'm really glad that you not only posted a photo of your beautiful little girl, but also included a shot of yourself.

It's nice "seeing" you.

Kayla sure is a cutie and the card sure seems to fit her to a "t".
