Happy Day

Good Thursday Afternoon!

Today, I thought I'd post a card I made for a special occasion in my littlest one's life.  I fell in love with this image by Tina Wenke (Stampavie) when I first laid eyes on it.  I picked-up this adorable stamp at the TownScrapper

  1. Hi Tricia,

    This is adorable! It's one of my favorite cards made with this stamp. I love your colors, the design, the decorations and especially how you colored the art. Thanks so much for using my image to create something so beautiful.

    Also, what a beautiful baby picture! He's really cute and I'm sure he's going to have fun with his big brothers.
