Happy 16th Birthday and Lawnscaping

My oldest daughter turns 16 today.  I cannot believe it.  Where has the time gone.  I made her a card using all shades of pink and purple--her favorite colors--and a bit of glitter, too.  What girl doesn't like glitter, right?  The driving age here in California is 16, and I am so very happy that she is not interested in driving at this point.  I must be providing good enough taxi service, and I'd like to keep it that way for at least another year.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card.  I used one of the PTI Movers and Shakers Poppers die from over a year ago...for the first time.   I think I'll use this die again.  Once I found the tutorial, it was actually quite easy to use and set up.

I have a little mini card and matching envelope for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge No. 67.  I just got the WR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, and I love it so much.  It is really quick and easy to use, and makes just the cutest little envelopes.  It is especially good with double sided paper.  

I used Critters in the Burb and Critters at the Dog Park for the mini card and MME The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine paper.

Speaking of Critters at the Dog Park, I need to run--I promised my daughter I'd take the dog to the dog park this morning.

Thanks for Visiting


  1. Eeek Fabulous Joyce! You got the 16 year old nod from my daughter on this one and a squeal, we love it and Rachel will too! Happy Birthday to Rachel! Love your card and envelope too.

  2. What a cool and funky card for your daughter, Joyce, and such an amazing inside ... hope she has a wonderful sweet sixteenth! What a cute dog critter card and sweet envelope ... so adorable! Anita :)

  4. Love your cards Joyce. Your daughter will love the card you made for her. Looks right up a teenager's alley.

  5. Happy Birthday to your beautiful Rachel! Believe it or not Richard was not in a huge hurry either . Fine by us though. Love the card you made for her.
    Good to know you like the envelope punch, I keep thinking about getting it.

  6. Love the sweet 16 card, especially the inside! My 16 yr old has waited impatiently from the age of 2 to get her permit and is very competently chauffeuring me around these days, but I don't know how/if I'll ever be able to let her drive off on her own.

  7. I'm sure your daughter loved her card, it's really eye catching. I'd like to get a punch board too, i adore wee little envelopes!

  8. Two awesome cards...and wow the graphic feel of the first has me swooning!

  13. Awesome Sweet 16 card! Great use of the dies and the colors are great. Happy Birthday to your daughter! Your mini card is adorable and extra special with the matching envelope.

  14. 16!!!
    I have 2 turning 16 in just over a month...YIKES!!
    How did that happen?!!
    They were just babies!! :)
    And like you...
    one is apparently satisfied with my driving to the point I think I may have to drive her to college...
    she refuses to even attempt learning how to drive and we have the rule of learners permit for 2 years before license...
    I'll be driving her to college!
    But say something to Hunter about driving and she's all for it!
    Then Ryder says "OH, no! We gonna die...Hunter can't see!" :) LOL
    And both cards are fabulous...
    love that mini!
    And now that I have that punch board...
    I can see some of these in my future! :)

  15. So very sweet indeed, love all those shades of pink/raspberry! Happy Birthday to your daughter!! I'm sure she treasures the card from Mom : ) I've only just discovered the joy of making your own envelopes. I think it adds SO MUCH to the whole package ... as you've showed so well here.

  16. Such great cards Joyce, especially the one for your daughter! Colors and design are perfect. 16....and I was lamenting over mine being 10! Lol.

  17. Happy sweet 16 and what a create envelope and mini notebook! So fun! Thanks so much for joining us at the Lawnscaping Challenge!
