A Birthday card for a special girl....

My granddaughter is turning four this week.  And she is everything a four year old should be.  She is sweet but sassy.  She's a very good girl with that glint of mischief in her eye.  She wants to know why, she hates bedtime, she has a complicated relationship with her little sister, she is busy every waking moment and she loves BIG.  I miss her and hate that living 1000 miles away means that I miss eating cake with her this week and giving her 4 birthday smooches.  But I made this card for her last night and mailed it off today along  with her gifts.  I wish I could see her open them but I will talk to her Wednesday and hear all about her day.  I love that little bundle of energy.  My daughter-in-law texted me tonight and said that she can't believe Abby is going to be 4 already.  I told Amy not to blink because the next thing you know she will be 16 and driving the car. 

I used this sketch from Card Positioning System for this card:

All the papers are from the Celebrate stack from DCWV, the twine is Marachino Cherry from the Twinery and the felt flower is from Pebbles, Inc. I am linking my card up over at this week's Birthday Sundaes challenge.



  1. She will certainly feel special with this card from Grandma. I love the color scheme. Blessings!

  2. oh four is a great age and this card is perfect Love the bright primary colors and all the details Hope it's a fabulous day for everyone

  3. Adorable card. I've got a grandson turning 4 in a month. It is a very special age. So sad you can't be there to give her those 4 smooches.

    I came over from CPS to check out your card.
