My Baby is Turning 18!!!

The youngest of my five children is turning 18 on January 23!!

As important a milestone as that is for HER, I am EQUALLY excited that I survived ALL thirty-five child rearing years with my sanity!! (My eldest, Moriah, turned 18 years-old in the year that Morissa was born. OOOH, MY GOODNESS!!)

Morissa is VERY artistically gifted, but STILL has an appreciation for my cardmaking efforts, so I put some EXTRA OOMPH into making her birthday card. (grin)

I made an easel card using two die-cuts from a Paper Trey Ink die, labeled "Front & Center." The die's original purpose is to create decorated panels for adhering to the front & back of little gift bags, but I envisioned another use -- and here are photos of the result. (I will give this another "Go" in the future for I think the die worked out GREAT for making a card! Hope Morissa likes it, too.)
