ICS Blog Hop It's A Girl Thing

Hey there my crafty friends! How are you today?  I have an extra special project to share with you this evening.  

Tonight's project is part of the ICS "It's A Girl Thing" Blog Hop. I can't imagine a more fitting one than this!

Today is my "BABY"s 18th Birthday! My beautiful, sweet, hard working girl is spending her birthday like a grown up already........... At work. lol. Poor kiddo!  She came home from school long enough to change clothes and dash out the door again. Suffice it to say, we'll be celebrating her birthday over dinner another day. Actually, we've named this entire week Hannah Palooza! Each day we've done (or will be doing) some little something together. Sadly, on her actual birthday, we'll have to keep it brief. She'll get this card and the gift card when she gets home tonight. 

I have to admit, I REALLY, REALLY love this card's layout.  The base is an 11" x 6" piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock.  Yes, that means it has to have a custom envelope made if it were going to be sent in the mail.  I'm not mailing it, so I won't worry about making an envelope. Actually, with the tiniest bit of forethought, this layout could be modified to fit in a standard A2 envelope.  But of course, it's a bit on the bulky side too....... So maybe it's best for a card like this to be hand delivered or sent in a padded mailer or box. :-D 

I'm almost as sad to see the "You're A Peach" collection leave as I am to know my little girl is a grown woman now. lol.  I had hoped that it would carry over at least one time. But alas! There are other beautiful collections on the horizon for us!
