Miss Krystal is 18!

Well the years have flown by and now my first ‘baby’ is a fully fledged adult.  It’s hard to believe really… we were watching a video of her as a two year old on Friday night (just for old times sake) and it really doesn’t seem like that long ago!

She has had quite a family time this weekend… Friday (her actual birthday) was fairly uneventful although she and Chris did manage to find time to go to a late afternoon movie :)

On Friday night Grandma and Poppa came over for dinner… curried kumara soup with English muffins… YUM!!  We sat around a blazing fire eating and chatting and then for dessert we had a chocolate mud cake that Grandma brought over!Krsystals cake Not such a great photo because my camera frosted up with the heat of the fire LOL  That’s Chris smiling away… her boyfriend of 9 months.  He’s doing a LOT of smiling at the moment because he got his braces off on Monday :)

Here’s the card I made for Krystal using one of my FABULOUS Magnolia Tilda stamps!  Easel I’m really enjoying making easel cards at the moment :)

Here’s what the front looks like:FrontKrystal’s not really a ‘pastel’ girl but I did manage to keep the softness.  The stamped image is coloured with Distress Inks… such a cool technique!

Here’s the inside of the card (I took the photo before I wrote the message… a girl’s got to keep some things private LOLInside  The beauty of easel cards is that when you stand them up they don’t fall over and nobody can read the message:Open Happy birthday Krystal… and as the card says I wish you ‘happiness always’

Love Mum xxx

  1. Shell, Your Easel card is beautiful, one of my favourite fairytale Tilda's, your colouring is wonderful and I love the gorgeous flowers. I'm sure your DD Krystal loved it very much. Happy Belated 18th Krystal. Hugs Jodie from Oz
