Manda Panda

My youngest is turning 14 this month and I thought I'd make her card as soon as inspired before her day came.

She loves pandas, my Manda Panda, and she gave me this tag that was on a hat she received for Christmas.

Isn't he the cutest???

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 380


I also used something from my stash that I HAD TO HAVE...these speech bubbles stickies~but haven't really used.

I'm participating in the CASology:Week 129:NBUS

*NBUS stands for "Never Been Used Schtuff"

Time slips by so fast...I've got all kinds of "schtuff" that need lovin', but I've had to put my girlies ahead these past six months.

Unfortunately, they don't "stay the same" like my stash...

for instance, my girlie turning 14!!!

She's my baby but the tallest of the bunch-I'm now the shortest in my crew. ;)

Don't even know how that happened....

stamps: Verve Treasured Words
paper: Studio Calico (Wanderlust),Bazzill,sticky note bubble

  1. It's so true, Marlena! Children grow up SO fast! What a fun idea to use that tag on a card, which is adorable and just perfect for the sketch and the CASology challenge!! I hope you'll also link it over at my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Marlena how are you my friend! Your panda bear card is adorable. Crazy when our babies become taller than us isn't it? Thank you so much for sharing with us at CASology this week!
