Happy 21st Birthday Heather

Today is my middle daughter Heather's 21st Birthday.
I am too young to have adult children...well I feel to young to have adult children.

Heather told me the best birthday card she ever received was the one I made her last year.
You can see it here.
So this year I had I try and do as good as last year ;)
She loves Alice in Wonderland, so I knew I wanted to use this paper again.
But I had to make it different then last year.
I added the pocket watch and the pen nib. She loved it :)

I also do calligraphy and use these types of nibs that I dip in the ink.
I also loved writing with nibbed pens with the ink cartridges inside the barrel.
So I love these embellishments :)
I used the back of the paper pack for the background of this card.

 I also love these pocket watch embellishments.
Alice is attached with a TH hitch fastener so she can be flipped up to see the pocket watch better.

The inside of the card before I added the mushy letter I wrote to Heather.

Onto My Day:
In our family when its your birthday, you get to choose where you want the family to go out for your for birthday dinner.
Heather wants to go to Olive Garden. We have only been there once as we don't have one here.
She decided to wait to go for her birthday dinner when we go to Minneapolis.
So I wanted to take her out for lunch.
She wanted to share her birthday lunch with her sisters :)
Here are my beautiful daughters Ashley, Kristy and Heather.
These girls are my heart.

After lunch I was exhausted, so when I got home I took a little nap :)  I guess I am old enough for adult daughters, lol.
Plus I have a sore back from shoveling snow last night. Hubby doesn't understand that shoveling is a man's my opinion ;)
Tonight Sharon and her hubby Jim came by to enjoy some ice cream cake.
We teased Heather that we forgot to get her a birthday cake. She wanted to try an Oreo Blizzard ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. We got it yesterday, but she didn't know that.

My rash is almost gone :)
The doctor's receptionist phoned me today to ask me if I could make it in to see the doctor at 4:00. My rash is almost gone so I didn't need to see him. When I got off the phone I noticed the time was 4:15. Ummm does anyone have a time machine, I would have had to go back in time to make that one.

I hope you all had a creative Monday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Lol on the time! Glad that rash is almost gone. LOVE the card!

  2. Glad the rash is almost gone!

    Your daughters look like such wholesome, lovely girls. So pretty!
    I consider snow shovelling mans work and so I never do theory is if you do it once it could become your permanent job...I'm taking no chances of that!!!
    Seriously, I have horrible balance problems (fall easily) and DH doesn't even like me to walk through the snow to get the mail.
    Too many broken, legs, ankles, collar bones, arms, now he' overprotective of my and snow.
    Lucky me, I say!
    Ps Love the card

  3. I am sorry it isn't midnight yet here. So happy birthday Heather, may all your dreams come true and you have a few grand kids some day to try your mom bonkers. LOL now where's the cake, I know someone had to say cake? I know I heard it.
    Big hugs,Pea

  4. "try to drive your mom bonkers". Me thinks me clever but clearly me is not! LOL

  5. Great Alice in Wonderland card :-) Happy birthday to Heather!

  6. happy birthday to heather!! and what a cool card!! you really rocked this one!

  7. Happy birthday Heather! Mmm, Olive Garden sounds good. We have one right by our house and hardly ever go though. Your card is amazing, I can only imagine how the mini will turn out! So happy to hear about your rash going away! I guess the dr got the right cream, huh? :)

  8. Love the birthday card you made for Heather and I hope she had a wonderful 21st birthday. Good choice for a birthday dinner-it is worth the wait. We don't have one here, so always have to go when we are out of town. Only one in MT and it is in Billings.
    I do lots of snow shoveling around here since Curtis is gone so much.
    Glad your rash it almost subsided. Beware of those hot tubs!!!!

  9. Happy Birthday to your daughter! Beautiful card!

    I know what you mean about not feeling old enough to have grown daughter's, but those afternoon naps sure are nice.

  10. Great themed card. I'm sure she loved it! Yes, shoveling snow is hard work from what I remember :-) Glad your rash is clearing up!

  11. Happy birthday Heather! Love the card and the pen nib!

  14. happy birthday to Heather! Great card!

  15. Happy Birthday Heather! Your daughters are so beautiful and happy. I hope my kids still like me when they are older LOL. Love the card.

    Tell Wayne shoveling is a man's job. Also included with that is mowing the lawn and taking out the garbage.

  16. happy birthday to your dd! I love when surprises work out that way too. And I also think that shovelling should be the dh's isn't in our house either (that honour falls to the dw & her two adorable boys)

  17. Beautiful card and even more beautiful are your daughters. They have such gorgeous eyes, a lovely shade of blue.
    Glad your rash is almost gone, that is a very good thing. Shoveling snow, taking out the trash, mowing the lawn all of these chores have my husband's name on them. I do more than my fair share of cleaning on the inside so I don't feel bad in the least that he takes care of those jobs. :)

  18. Happy birthday to your daughter, so sweet how she loves your cards you make her.
