Mimi's Birthday...

Hello again...hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I can't believe 2 days could fly by so quickly!! The weather was absolutely spectacular here in Richmond, the mid-60s and clear....a little breezy, which is helping the leaves fall. I can't get over the spetacular fall colors this year...vibrant reds and oranges and golds!! My fave time of year!! between venturing outside intermittently to take the pups out for some fresh air, reading, and taking a little nap, I've been busy in my craftroom! YAY! Here's a little card I made for our youngest granddaughter, Mia. She'll be 4 years old next month...just before Christmas, actually. So I thought I'd get a head start on her card. I've discovered that some of Mo Manning's images are perfect for Mimi...because they so look like her!! This little sweetie is called "Angelina" by Mo Manning. I love how the static electricity from the balloons is making her hair stand up!! Mimi's hair looks a little like this when she first wakes up in the morning!! hehehe!

Here's a close up...

I've decided to enter this simply darling little card into Challenge 58 at Mo's Challenge Blog HERE. This week's challenge is to use 3 punches and a Mo Manning image. The punches I used were:
* Martha Stewart punches (sorry...can't remember the name)...for the edge and corner
* Marianne's fancy circle die (don't know the name...I got it from Bunny Zoe's)
* Scallop circle punch (from Stampin' Up)
* Magnolia Doohickey die (for the inside tag)

And a pic of the inside...

Here's the rest of my card "recipe"...
Cardtock: Blushing Bride & Very Vanilla (Stampin Up)
DPs: K & Co. "Hopscotch" Designer Mat Pad
Ribbon & flower: my stash
Sentiment: LOTV
Glossy Accents for her shoes
And here's a pic of the Copics I used.

So that's it for now...I have work tomorrow...but it's a short week (YAY!!) because we're celebrating Thanksgiving here in the U.S. Thanks to all of you for stopping by for a peek. Have a beautiful week, sweet friends. See you soooooon....
