A Special Girl

In addition to being a Mommy and having the most amazing children God could have ever given me, there's something so special about being an Auntie.  I have been blessed with 12 nieces and 5 nephews.  And now, I'm even a Great Auntie to Gideon, who is almost 3, and to Leilah, who is just one year old.  Time sure does fly by, and these special children in my life are growing up so quickly.  My first niece ever was Margaret.  She was born in Germany and I didn't get to meet her until she was almost a year old.  She is now turning 24.  Where has the time gone?

When I saw the challenge for this week at Simon Says Stamp Blog I thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to make a special Birthday gift for Margaret.  When she was little, I would do special and cute little things for her.  I hope that this little card will remind her of those special little things.  I'm going to fill the pocket (a glassine bag in back) I adhered this card to - with her favorite treats and a Starbucks gift card.

So, I'm entering this project in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp which, for this week's challenge, is supposed to be for a Special Girl (which Margaret is), or a Mother's Day project.  Here is a link to their current challenge.  This is my luck week - I can just feel it (LOL).

I'd love to hear about a special someone in your life that you've made, or are making, a speical treat for this week.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and say hello.

Blessings,
Karen

  3. This is fantastic! I love all the different papers and ribbon you've used! God is so good to give us special relationships like this! My best friends daughter is also best friend with my daughter and has become part of our family! I try to often let her know she's love and she brings rays of sunshine when she comes over(often!- she lives around the corner!) Thank you for sharing about Margaret!
