Happy Birthday, Erica!!

Today's card is for my daughter Erica who is 22!!  Wow, where does the time go?!  Yesterday while I was at work we decided that we were getting together in the evening for her birthday supper, and I hadn't even made her card yet...yikes!  So I fly home from work with 30 minutes to get a card ready.  Good thing I had already looked through some challenges earlier in the day and was planning the card a little in my mind before I headed home.  I used the challenge from The Friday Mashup "Faux Mother of Pearl Technique" with a sketch to go with it.  It was fun to do and very simple!  I think it worked great for this card.

Here's a couple of fun pics of our evening out...

A couple of pictures of me and my girls.

Dodging pictures as usual...

Yup, her dad.  Why would anyone do that?!?!

Not sure what's happening here!

Ok, he really does look normal. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
