I Do Special Requests

A couple of months ago when I did my first in a long time stamping spree, I bought an Elisabeth Bell stamp from Sugar Nellie (via Funky Kits) that made me think of my daughter. She immediately declared the stamp "her girl". Although I done quite a bit of playing with the image (see my water coloring experiments in the Great Copic Debate post), I hadn't made her up into a card. The first week of March heralds in 4 birthdays in our house falling in a short 5 day span between the 5th and the 10th. My adorable now 3 year old daughter is one of those days.

During a mad house cleaning event prior to the family descending upon the house for a joint birthday celebration, I was picking up my stamped images. I had a few of my early run tests that had come out less than perfect. In an attempt to distract my daughter and get a few more things done, I handed over two of the images and her crayons. She happily made cards for her Gramma and Aunt. When she was done, she insisted I make a card for her birthday with her girl and a dragon. She's an eclectic little girl. :)

The more I worked on the card the more elements were required. She should be pink and there should be flowers. The girl and the dragon were the most important though. Never one to disappoint in the face of her daddy's eyes and curly golden hair, I made up this little gem -
Linsey's Girl Card

And the requested dragon on the inside -
