Hosting LSC

Okay this is my second time typing this up and I am a bit sad because I had it all totally and completely typed in and it somehow dissapeared into lala land! I will start woth some pictures of my sweet little Emelia...who is turning THREE today! I can not believe how fast time has gone by! This is a picture that some of you might be familiar with...it's my Avatar from Splitcoaststampers and I just can't seem to part with it! I have 2 other kids and I know they are feeling neglected cuz I won't change my avatar...but look how sweet she looks! Plus, now that it's been up for 3 years people might not know who I am if I change it! LOL

This next picture was taken a few months ago, but doesn't she just look the cutest! I will post more pictures from her 3rd birthday party in a few weeks...thanks for going down memory lane with me!

Now for the card! I knew it was my turn to host on her birthday so I took the oppertunity to let her inspire my Challenge LSC196. Her favorite color is pink...so you are to use pink somewhere on your card or project, she's turning 3 so what better than to limit the layers and embelishments to 3! Last but not least...she loves animals, so an animal must be used in the card or project! Here is my card! (her birthday card!)

I used pretty in pink for the card base, I then stamped the little kitty on a piece of 2.25 x 2.5 piece of whisper white cardstock and colored it in using blender pens and pretty in pinjk and certainly celery inks...added glitter and was done with that. Next I used a piece of designer paper scrap and cut a circle using my creative memories circle cutter and added it to the base and tied a pink gingham ribbon around it...for my last step I added a #3 chipboard number 3 and that's all...super simple and super cute for my super cute 3 year old!

Thanks for looking!

So precious! I rarely take the extra time to load personal blogs when surfing SCS, but the invite to see the then and now pic was more than I could resist. Thankfully so - she is adorable. This card is perfectly sweet too.
