Happy 18th Frankie!



We have another birthday celebration coming up soon...our daughter is turning 18 next week!  I wanted to make sure this was completed and ready to go before her birthday, as last year I was late in making her card and she was very upset with me and muttered something about "the shoemaker's kids." She's a total goofball about anime and manga and even has a few characters that she draws herself. I personally think she's super talented and have asked her a few times to draw images for specific projects for me...if she actually does get around to drawing them I'll let you know. I can't believe we'll be taking her on college visits this coming month.

 
I started making this banner a couple of week's ago hoping to enter it into a couple of challenges but was sidetracked by a few birthdays, along with out-of-town guests. I'm not complaining tho...it was great to see my sister again as it's been since  spring since I last saw her. I added kanji and flowers from the Pagoda cartridge, and the number 18 is from the Mickey & Friends font cartridge. The girlies are from the newest Sister Stamp release and all  DP is from the MME Penny Lane line.

This is the matching card made with a few leftovers...such as the negative from one of the flowers and an extra butterfly I didn't use on the banner.


Stamps:
Sister Stamps: Mariko (w/ present), Miyoko (w/ cupcake)
Hero Arts: Arigato
Stampin' Up: Take a Spin

Challenges:
Yumi & Fumi Handmade: #3 Anything but a Card
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door: #37 Sept 25th - Oct 1st
Use it Tuesday: Use Your Scraps, here's how:
All images were stamped on odd sized scraps and then fussy cut.
The flowers were cut with DP scraps left over from a project from 3 years ago.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving all of the sweet comments that you do, they really are a bright spot in my day.
