A Special Birthday

     We have some good friends from church who recently moved to Cocoa Beach, FL with the military.  For some reason or another their little girl and I just fell in love with each other.  Four years old, blonde haired, blue-eyed, and smart as a whip.  She was always trying to find a way to come home with me and spend the day (which she did LOL).  Well, the little doll is turning 5 next Friday so I'm getting her birthday present ready for the mail.
     I was going to make her a princess card since she is just wild about all the Disney princesses, especially Cinderella, but when i saw this little cat at Mo's Digital Pencil I knew it was perfect.  Maddie loves kitty cats, ballerinas, and pink!
     Here's the inside of the card.  I rarely finish the inside, but you really don't have a choice with an easel card. LOL.

     I love the feeling of really enjoying the making of a card and this was one of those cards.  The sketch is an old Mojo Monday sketch.  Hope you like it.

Tracy I am sure that not only will little Maddie Rose love this card but I bet mom will treasure it and save it for her so she can really appreciate the art of it as she get's older. It is truly a work of art and love (and a love for both!!)
