15 Already? How Can That Be? (NSU)

It's my younger daughter's birthday today and as you can tell from my header, she is now 15. OMG just doesn't sum up how amazed I am at how many years have gone by so quickly. I can still recall quite clearly the day I went off to the doctor's to get a pregnancy test.

She has certainly turned out to be a wonderful young person. I just love her zany sense of humour, her compassion for others - well, pretty much everything about her really! I am a completely lucky mum in that my two daughters are my best friends and we love to spend time together, so I know I have to make the most of the next two years before DD15 finishes high school and is leaving home to go to uni .... anyone worked out how to make time stand still yet? Call me!

Well, naturally, I had to make a special card and the colour green was a given. The choice of stamps was a toss up - she loves tea but I've done that before, she loves Dr Who but I've done that too. Finally I settled on other "nerdy" past-times she enjoys - reading and her Apple laptop. Here is her card:

the middle section

the last section

Materials used:
  • card - lucky limeade, afternoon tea dsp, whisper white, so saffron
  • other - chevron E/F, Big Shot, dimensionals, markers
  • non SU - TSG Smarty Pants stamps, doily dies, circle dies

Later on today she'll be stomping around in her green Doc Martens! Sigh! Maybe Doctor Who can help me go back in time?

Thanks for stopping by.

I love that you made her card so special and unique! The sentiment is too cute!

If you ever do find a way to stop the growing up process, please share! My babies are growing too quickly!
