You don't need to use an InStyle Stamps but if you have one, why not use it. Be sure to add a "thank you" type of sentiment to your card.

Now to my card. . .I know. . .my card don't have a "thank you" sentiment. . .I had forgotten that I was suppose to use one.

I really had fun creating this card! I love this image. . .her name is Lilah! Isn't she cool or what. . .such a supah star!! LOL! I think I'm going to give this card to my daughter because she's "my supah star"!!

I colored Lilah with my Copic Markers and added a little bit of Stickles on her hair and her belt.

Hey. . .if I haven't commented your blog. . gosh, I've been busy catching up on a bunch of stuff. . .DT stuff, life stuff, everything stuff! I'll stop by when I have the chance. . .this week is sort of crazy busy! I usually have my routine in the mornings but we've been doing a lot of activities while my daughter is on spring break.

Anyway, stop by InStyle Stamps and play along in the challenge this week!!

Photo of the Day

Livestock Only

This was photo was taken the other day when me, my husband, and my daughter went out and hung out at a part of our town called "Old Town". Old Town Temecula is the original town or the actual town prior to it's major growth. The town still has a lot of the original buildings from the early 1800s. Anyway, this photo is of my daughter in a tub or bath tub that were used by livestock; hence, the sign you see in the picture. Only after I uploaded the photo, I realized my mistake of not taking a picture of the bath tub. I was focused on taking a picture of the sign that I forgot to add the tub in the photo.

It has been a crazy week! I can only imagine how busy it has been for you!! But it is nice that you are getting to spend so much time with your daughter!!! I love the picture of her! Too funny that they had to put a sign that said that the tub was only for live stock! LOL!
