  6. What a fabulous and super fun birthday card Marlena! 13... wow... a teenager! How fun! I love each and every square on your waterfall. Thanks for playing along with us at Flourishes for this week's "Timeless Tuesday Challenge"!

All the sweet sentiments are sure to touch her heart. Thanks so much for playing along in this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

  8. Aren't those waterfall cards fun to make? I think they are even more fun to play with! They have a tendency to look worn more than the other cards, that's for sure : ) What a super-fun card for your new teen-ager, Marlena! Sweet sentiments too.

  9. Awwww! I don't know what is sweeter - your amazing waterfall card or the wonderful words for your daughter. :) I don't think I'd ever have the patience for one of those cards but you have rocked it. And big belated birthday wishes for your new teenager!

  10. Very clever birthday card layout. Thank you for joining the Friday Feature Challenge.

  11. I'm late commenting (hectic times + disorganized me), so first: Happy Birthday, Amanda! I wish you a year of happiness, joy, love and yes, please 'slow down' with growing up! Savour every moment, but especially, enjoy being your 'mom's girl'! She treasures you, as I know you do, her! I'm sure your love x love x love this unique card made for you! It's unique, fresh, heart-warming, thoughtful! You and your mom (and your sisters and dad): such a loving family! Hugs to all of you!


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
