Happy Birthday, Sarah!



I made this card for my middle daughter.  Her birthday was on the 1st of September and while my husband has been deployed, she has been spending some time with my parents.  It has been a blast for her, but of course I feel like a piece of me is missing.  My sweet, sweet little girl!!!  I can't believe how much she has grown and what a sweet little spirit she has.  Anyway, she got a nice shout-out on my family blog, so I won't go on and on here, like I did there on her birthday ;)

You will probably recognize this card from page 72 in the current Idea Book & Catalog.  I blinged it up and made it pink for her.  She loves pink and purple, so this combo was pretty easy to come up with.  I hope you like it - she loved it!! :)
