Susie Says, It's Your Day!

Good Morning, Lovelies!

My card today features another brand spankin new set from The Greeting Farm called Susie Surprise. This set comes with a bunch of fun cupcakes and accessories, which I'm excited to play with, but for this one I wanted to spolight Miss Susie herself.

I actually spent quite a bit of time agonizing over this layout. As always I had the image colored up and the papers chosen and then they sat in waiting. I knew I wanted to created a present but where I struggled was how and where and what and who and why and ...okay, maybe it wasn't that bad. :) I have really taken a liking to stitching! I just can't get enough of it! This card really was a blast afterall and this set is SO FUN to play with. You should check out my friend and fellow DT member, Tammy's blog too and see her awesome Susie cards!

Just yesterday my DD was perusing old photos of herself and asked me why she always smiled with her mouth so wide open. She finally decided that it was to make her look cuter. LOL

That is the first thing that came to mind when I saw your card - Just like Princess A!! :)

I LOVE the way that behind Susie is her is just like a gift - complete with BOW! Awesome, Kadie!!
