I decided to go ahead and make her card before I got to busy and totally forgot and then have to go buy a store bought card (Not Cool!!) her favorite colors are yellow and purple hince the color scheme! I hope she likes it!

Hi Letillia!

Thank you so much for hopping in Jo's birthday blog hop and following my blog. I'm so glad you invited me over, I'm a new follower for you! Wow! What a BEAUTIFUL family you have! I checked out some of your projects, very cute stuff! The card for your daughter is so pretty and I loved the Mickey Mouse cards too! I also noticed you have a Yorkie, me too. My Shadow is ten and in his little mind he is the master of the house! I bet you know what I'm talking about! LOL! I look forward to blogging with you!
