Happy Birthday Sierra!

Tomorrow is my eldest granddaughter's 8th birthday.  I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.  Opa and I were so excited on becoming grandparents.  When my daughter told us that she was expecting in December of 2004; I told her that I wanted her child to call us Oma and Opa as a way of honouring  my Dutch heritage.

The challenge at the One Crazy Stamper blog for the month of June is Summer.  I thought that the card I made for Sierra fit this category.  Here is my card:

I used a Popsicle stick for the pinwheel.  Card stock & ribbon is from my stash.  Design paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad - Flower Box by Doodlebug Design which I bought at OCS.  I love this cheerful paper pad and will probably use it to create a birthday card for my 2nd granddaughter Brooke who will be celebrating her 6th birthday next month.  She was born on 07/07/07.

Sentiment is from Penny Black - Sweet Wishes.  Here is the inside of Sierra's card which I personalized with the alphabet clear stamps from Your Next Stamp which I bought at Scrapfest in April.  I also added some blue glitter stars which I punched out.

Here is the clear stamp set from Penny Black.  I've used it quite a bit:

Sierra will be getting roller blades from her parents so Opa and I will be getting her elbow and knee pads along with some pajamas which she needs. 

Thanks for stopping by!
