Hi everyone!  I have a new card for you today.  I am GDT at Crop Stop again and so I made another birthday card.  

This card is for my niece Cortlynn.  She is turning 15 in just a couple weeks.  Boy is she a full teenager too.  Sometimes I wish aliens would stop abducting our children and leaving these irritable teenagers in their place.  My oldest daughter only came back a couple years ago.  She had been gone for about 10 years...LOL.

This was my adorable sweet niece just a few short years ago.

Now she is this beautiful alien.

One day our sweet girl will return.  Occasionally she visits but doesn't stay long.  I hope she likes her card.

Thanks for your visit and have a blessed day!

What a beautifully bright and cheerful card Robin, looks perfect for a teenager to me - and yes there is definitely an alien presence with most of them at times.

Such a beautiful and bright creation. Thank you for joining our Word Art Wednesday Challenge. There's still plenty of time to link more projects. God bless you and leaving you some encouraging verses from the Bible found in Romans 8:38-39 which tells us, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
