Five Already

Today our little girl, Renee, turned 5. It's quite amazing how fast time has gone. Five years ago we lived here (UK) as well. Renee was born 9 days late, and if it was up to her, I'm sure she would have been three weeks late. I was becoming very impatient and demanded to be induced. They induced me on the 19th, hoping she would be born that day, just like David, Ruben and I were born on the 19th (be it of different months). But no, she decided to come 2 1/2 hours later, so it turned out to be the 20th. At least Rebecca wasn't the only odd one out.

Our little 5 year old, who isn't so little anymore:

I hope you had a wonderful birthday, little one. I love you!

This is the card I made for her:

Supplies: cardstock - Bazzill, PPs and die cuts - Basic Grey, scallop punch - Marvy Uchida, flower punch - Woodware, butterfly punch - Martha Stewart, embossing folder - Cuttlebug, bling - Prima and KaiserCraft, ribbon - local haberdashery, chipboard '5' - Maya Road, paint - Making Memories, Royal Coat - Dimensional Magic.

Until next time!

How luck you are to have such a beautiful little girl! And how lucky she is to have a mother who can create amazing works of art like that card!

Lisette, wat een prachtige dochter heb je en wat een prachtige kaart heb je voor haar gemaakt en weet je voor mij is 20 november ook een bijzonder dag. Ik ben nl. ook op de 20e nov. jarig en ben op de 20e (gisteren)tante geworden van 2 meisjes. Mijn moeder is helemaal happy: dochter jarig en dan ook nog eens 2 kleindochters...Van harte nog.
