Happy Birthday Dear Madeline!

This is my last post of the long Thanksgiving holiday.  : (  Dontcha wish it could go on and on?  {sigh}  Well...mine was an absolutely great one.  I hope yours was too!

I made this card for my granddaughter, Madeline, who will turn 11 this coming Thursday.  Wasn't it just yesterday she was such a sweet little 18 month old with her little Pebbles Flintstone ponytail on top of her head.  Then ya turn around for a second and she's 11!  Ya know my kids were sneaky like that too!  One day they're little bitty, the next they're all grown up and heading out the door!!  I guess it's like that for everyone, huh?

I thought this Stampavie dog was such a sweetie that she needed to go to a child... in this case a (kinda) little girl.  Thus the overdose of pink!!  haha!  Oh... and this was my first try at making a bow with my new bow-easy.  It was a little awkward, but everything I've read says that will be the case, then it'll get easier.  But isn't the bow just awesome?!?!?!?  I'm not trying to brag... I'm just so pleased!!  I've always been just awful at bows, but no more!  YIPEE!  Thanks bow-easy folks!  {happy grin}

The challenges:
1.  A Spoonful of Sugar - Colour Combo.  Start with brown as your basic color, then choose either pink or blue to go along with it.
