Well, we did it! A monumental occasion around here...one that makes our hearts grow and we are so happy for a sweet, new memory. I had talked to my little one before we had her hair cut about donating her lovely locks to help another child, so to all of you who asked and encouraged, that was already in the works. Thank you for your lovely suggestions. She looks so completely irresistible. I am smitten with her. She is smitten with herself. And, her daddy...he hasn't really said much to me about it, so I'm just letting him ease into it, but just tonight I heard him talking on the phone to his brother and he was going on and on about her looking as cute as a button and how much he loved her sweet, new haircut. Too cute and tender. Just when we thought we couldn't love her more....
Today, in honor of all things girly, how about a shabby, frilly, glittery card? I created this as I start on my new adventure with the Vintage Cafe Card Challenge blog. Our challenge this week was simply to use pearls. This girl loves pearls, so I had a fun time with it. I used Papertrey Ink's Wildflower Garden and Bitty Background Blocks stamp sets, and my favorite die cut chipboard technique including painting, stamping, sanding, distressing with ink, and adding glitter. I used the Large Scallop Border die and the Flower Fusion #11 die.
Be sure to stop by the Vintage Cafe Card Challenge blog to see what the other designers have created. I know I can't wait to see their creations!
