Wisteria in Bloom

Good morning blogging friends.  Our Granddaughter is having a big 
birthday today.  She is turning 20 years old.  Could not
be more proud of this young woman for all she has
accomplished so far.  She is attending college and majoring
in Art with ambitions to become an Art teacher and/or Art Therapist.

I remember my 20th birthday like it was yesterday. 
I rose early that morning, Did my hair, put on a pretty white
dress I had just gotten, and went to church.
You're probably wondering how I could remember all these
details so vividly, well it was my wedding day!
When I reminded our daughter that I was married on
my 20th birthday, she said "bite your tongue".

So some pretty flowers are in order today.

Stamp - Wisteria Circle-Stampendous (CRW202)
Papers - White card stock base 6x6 inches 
Purple card stock mat is 5 3/4x53/4
Designer paper from my stash
Die - Little B Scallops
Circle with image die is Spellbinders circle nestabilities
Crystal Sparkly Embossing powder on image circle
Ribbon from my stash, one of those ribbons you never want
to cut into, HA!
Colored with Copics

Such a beautiful stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later......

Gorgeous 20th birthday card, Sue! I frequently am mindful of my grandmas and mom, and what their lives were like as I age. Our children and grandchildren are raised in an evolved society. Things are so different! Your dear granddaughter will be smitten by your incredible masterpiece. It’s a wonderful stamp, which is now in my wish list. I like your daughter’s response. LOL thanks for sharing your precious memories. XXOO
