I miss my babies....

Helloooooooo! 
I'm so happy you stopped by my blog. Please excuse the cobwebs.  It's residual Halloween decorations and real ones. My grandmother taught me to crochet many years back and this last visit she taught me knitting and I haven't been able to focus on anything else.  I promise to visit and catch up next week.  In the meantime, here's my latest offering for The Cutting Cafe.
My baby girl will be 18 very soon and even though she's still a sweetheart who hugs me all the time and lets me kiss her in public and loves to cuddle and watch Netflix with me, she's not a little kid anymore and that's sad...
(Many apologies to my Mom for growing up too!)  
I decided to make her a girly card using this fabulous Candle Shaped Card, Assorted Banners, Birthday Number Candles, and 5 Petal Layered Flower Set.
Here's a fun little insert. 
Notice the 'due' date is highlighted.  That's what the doctor predicted and the 'date out' is when she was born.  
And that's that!
Again, please excuse my absence of late. I can't wait to come visit you all. Until then,
knit 1, purl 2......
Everything and more and even some VERY NEW ACRYLIC STAMPS coming soon to 
All DT projects are posted at The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month. We'd love for you to visit and be sure to leave a comment for Regina. She selects one lucky person to receive 3 FREE files of their choice!
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

LOL, this is adorable, but I totally get what you mean about the knitting....I just rediscovered it and it has pushed my stamping out of the way more times than I can count! You should post some of your projects! Anyway, the little girl with her dog is the sweetest image ever; your daughter will love it!

Love your new header, Lisa, it's a lovely photo of you. And of course I love that beautifully decorated candle shaped card too, haven't seen anything like it before. Very original and I'm sure your daughter will love her card.

ah yes I'm back...I had to take a wee break...I got to the part where your girl is turning 18 and had to take a breather! Mine just turned 15 and I KNOW my turn is right around the corner! Goodness! They leave that out of the Mommy book don't they! Eeek! I totally dig your card even tho it appears all those years ago she kinda gave you a run for your money!!!! Such a sweet little image at the bottom love the whole thing! Glad you are learning something new too! Our blogs will wait!

A truly fantastic card for a milestone birthday. I love the little girl and puppy at the heart of it all, and the fantastic ephemera and bold pink bow to top it all off. I've never got on with knitting at all - knit one, drop two is more my style. Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to!

November 8 is a fabulous date to have a birthday! Many happy birthday wishes to your daughter! Love your incredible creation, absolutely jaw dropping adorable!

Lisa S. said...

I'm a dork (but what's new)...I love your blog header too! You are one pretty lady L2!! This is the sweetest project and a very Happy Belated Birthday to your baby girl. It's funny bc my DD turned 21 this year and little by little she's trying to help me release her. Pffft never I say lol! I text her a photo of one of her baby pic's to remind her she will ALWAYS be my baby girl. And as you say, that's that. LOVE your beautiful b'day gift to Brittany!!! xx

This is such a wonderful card, love all the attention to details - gorgeous! Sorry it's been a while - I'm playing catch up too :-)

Meihsia Liu said...

Love love love your beautiful project, Lisa. You always have brilliant ideas and create awesome details. :)

Tracey said...

Oh my gosh.......this card is the cutest ever, really pretty Lisa! Love the shape!

cm said...

Lisa, I'm ultra tardy in catching up on your wonderful gallery of delight and my only excuse: disorganized on my part! Aiming to remedy that right this minute! Your project for your 'baby' is absolutely beautiful; rich with details AND memories! Keepsake, for sure! I hear you about the knitting and how addicting it can be. In fact, even writing the word has me wanting to dig out my needles and yarn (I can barely knit but it is relaxing, even though I have to count every. single. stitch. I could use a scarf *grin*

Awww.. what a great post - your apologies to your mom for growing up.. I totally get that now that mine are growing up too. Shame on them! Everyone said this was supposed to make us happy! Treasure your sweet girl as long as you can - I love her beautiful card - and the little due date tucked in.. she made you wait... but it was so worth it!
