Happy Birthday! withTasteful Trim Die

 Happy Birthday to Nika!
   Yes today Nika is turning 17 I still remember that summer that I was pregnant with her, one HUNDRED pound heavier, a few weeks before I deliver her we when to visit my Father in Law that own  a Motel in North Dakota when we arrived and was sanding in the lobby talking to my brother in law, then my father in law came in the lobby and at that time I was leaving to go to the bathroom and Brett was getting the language out of the car so he  ask my brother in law who he was talking to...OMG he wouldn't believe it was me till I came out of the bathroom and talk to him so I'm so glade I don't carry that hundred pound anymore! Yes I look like a beach ball. I still can believe I gain 100 pound and she was only 6 pound little girl. Okay back to business...
The card on top I received from Barb S. at convention and when Nika saw that card she was going on and on how beautiful it was, well Nika LOVE blue  so this was right for her. So I wanted to make one for her birthday but she LOVE Owl to so I added a owl on top. Just a little FYI while I'm talking about Nika her eyes are much better but not 100% yet still going at the Dr. every 10 days but it's getting there thank you all for the prayers and encouragement.

 What you need for this card is
  • Tasteful Trim Die
  • polka Dot Embossing Folder
  • 3/4 circle and owl punch punch
  • Stamp set, Dot Dot Dot, Curly Cute
  • Card Stock: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Bashful Blue
Have a great day you all and till next time Happy Stamping!
