Live the life you love

Recently my cards seem to have been of the 'I can't wait for this one to slip off the page' variety - but I finally found some time to sit and craft and I came up with something I am more than happy with.
This is for my daughter's 23rd birthday on Thursday - how did she get to be a grown up so fast!!

How amazing is this image - it's from  Crafts and Me - and when I saw it I knew it would be perfect. Ignore the horrible streaky lines on it - that's just my cr** printer at work - the download itself is spot on.

I spent ages colouring her with Copics and gave her the same hair and eye colour as my daughter.
I can't wait to try her out with some different colours though - maybe some bright pink, or blue hair!! :-))

I found the perfect little sentiment in a set of stamps that came free with a magazine

Divas by Design - Stamp Something
Truly Scrumptious - Use Lace
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Do You Stack Up - Sew it ( I did the stitching on my sewing machine)
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes
CMC Copic Challenge - Spring Pretties ( I used the deep pink from the crocus picture to pick out my ribbon and a mix of blues and pinks from the easter eggs picture on my DP and the image)

Crafts and Me Digi Stamp - Cali Girl - coloured with Copics.
Sorry, I don't know what this DP is, I received it as a prize.
XCut heart dies.   Lace, ribbon, gems from my stash.  Sentiment was a magazine freebie
Martha Stewart lace doily punch.
