Sweet 16 Birthday!

Our sweet daughter is 16 today!  I wanted to make her a very special card.  I knew I wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Countless Sayings 2 Photopolymer Stamp set.  In fact, I might have bought this set knowing I needed the very cute “Sweet” for her Sweet 16 Birthday card! Do you ever buy a stamp set for a certain word or image you know you need to have?  Hopefully I’m not the only one.

The Happy Birthday inside the card also came from the same set.  I used the Little Letters Thinlits to cut out the “ABBY.”  Blendabilities were used for all the coloring.  You might have noticed I used the medium Coastal Cabana Blendabilites marker, but it matches the Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I hope Abby doesn’t see this card on Facebook before she gets home from school, because I haven’t given it to her yet.  Abby- stay off Facebook at school!  Dad and I love you so much and hope you have a wonderful birthday.  Yes, this does mean it’s time to get your driver’s license!

Abby requested Pulled Pork for her birthday dinner.  My Pulled Pork recipe takes about 48 hours, but is oh so good.  Let me know if you’d like the recipe.  It’s actually very easy, just many hours of soaking in a brine and many hours to bake.  My house smells heavenly today.  When Keegan got up this morning he said, “I hope whatever it is you’re making is for us.”  I guess he’s used to some food being made to go out the door for other people or events.  LOL

Here’s Abby’s card with the matching envelope.
