Birthday for a Special Girl

Edit:  This card won Top 3 honors at 4 Crafty Chicks challenge #14!  : )

Hello friends!  YAY... it's the weekend!  I'm always so happy on Saturday and Sunday!  : )  I bet most of you are too, right??

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my granddaughter, Madeline.  It was her birthday yesterday and she just loved it!!  She's one of my biggest stamping fans.  All the rest of my family enjoys receiving them, but isn't all that excited about it.  Madeline is and I really appreciate that.  It's really sweet of her.

You can probably tell from the image I've selected, but Madeline is crazy for cats... especially kittens!  When I saw this image from A Day for Daisies, I knew I had to have it for Madeline's b-day card.  I just recently found these folks and I just love their products!  Wonderful images and they have new releases every Friday!!  It's fun finding new sources of great images!!

I have a lot of differing items on here... lace and pearls, the flannel plaid-type DP, and a pewter charm.  I like to do that.  Mix things up or do the unexpected, at least in small doses.  It was so, so fun to color up these kitties!  Just a couple plops of copic markers here and there and they're done.  Cute, aren't they??
