Happy Birthday Riley!

My little Great Granddaughter Riley will turn 8 in September but she ask if she could have her birthday party before her Aunt Denise and Cousin Lexie went back to California so we are having her party tomorrow. She loves music boxes and especially those with little ballerinas on top so this is her card. I may have to add a little ballerina charm if I can find one.

We are home recouperating today from 3 days in Branson, Mo and one day in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We had fun and shopped, saw music shows etc. but today is our day to rest because there are things going on tomorrow. It is my DH birthday as well as Riley's birthday party. He did not want a party in fact insisted he not have a party so he is not having one.

Have a great day!

  4. Oh my gosh, this is GORGEOUS Linda. I've been eyeing this stamp, now I need to buy it, it is amazing. Your coloring is over the top wonderful, love the flowers, fancy corner, flourish and ribbon. So glad you can all celebrate Riley, I remember when she had surgery a few years back. Have a wonderful party. And happy birthday to your dh, too!

  6. I always like the flower corner´s on your cards, Linda. It looks so nice !! This is a really sweet image- i´m sure Riley will like it.

  7. Hey Linda - such a pretty card for Riley. I love the color combo you have used. Your coloring is very good and gracious sakes alive, what little girl would not love to have a pair of those sparkly shoes. Sounds like you have had a special summer with Lexie as well. You are so funny - so hubby won't have a party - we will just have to eat cake without him!! Very nice birthday card Linda!
