Gold and Jelly Bean Birthday


What does one design for a sweet nine year old who is going on 19?

This card started with some gold striped  paper, and I cannot remember if it was a magazine freebie or from a pad...

The jar and sentiment (again a freebie) were stamped and gold embossed, and then the jelly beans were stamped using blue ink, coloured and covered with glossy accents

This panel was in another magazine feebie set... she really doesn't really need to be told she's fabulous - she already seems to know it, but I love her as she is a real sweetie with it.

Had to chuckle Maxine re her not needing to be told she’s fabulous and the nine going on nineteen is very like our eight year old going on eighteen. I remember looking up to teenagers in my single digits but certainly didn’t have the spunk some have these days ( in part cause we wouldn’t have bee allowed to do it... a cute card indeed. Love the gold background.

By the way. You can link more than one card per post. I’ve been meaning to share tip on blog ... must do it in Wed.. I complained to Linky folk and received a simple tip to solve it.

Card one white etc for first link
Second card you just add directly to the end #3 if more do #4 #5 and so on for sime reason you dint do #2.

So mine would be:
Card 1
Card 2
Card 3
And so on, hopefully that helps solve multiple post issue.

Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too.
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
