Happy Birthday Keri!

Once again my photography skills leave much to be desired.....I cut the top off of  the flourish! This card is for my beautiful daughter Keri who is turning 36 yr. old on April 6th. How did my baby get to be that old when I'm only 29 again this year?? LOL For the first time ever I won't be with Keri on her birthday. We are still in Arizona & although we are leaving tomorrow we are taking a LONG route home. We are heading to Palm Springs, California first to spend a few days with some friends. From there we are going to travel through the giant redwood forest & along the coast of California, Oregon & part of Washington to Port Angeles. From there we take a ferry over to Vancouver Island to visit more friends...these ones we haven't seen for 5 yrs. so it will be a great reunion. From there we go to beautiful Penticton in the Okanagan Valley to spend 5 or 6 days with Bill's brother. Penticton is in wine country so no doubt we will do some sampling! To get home to Manitoba from there we go through the majestic Rocky Mtns.  We won't get home until April 20th....hopefully all the snow is gone by then! It was 90 degrees in Arizona today so the thought of going home to snow makes me shudder! Needless to say, I won't be making any cards for the next 3 weeks but I will be checking in to see what all my bloggie friends are creating.
Now, about my card. The adorable image is from LOTV & is colored with prismacolor pencils. The CS is Coredinations, DP is K & Company, the flower & flourish are Memory Box, pearls are Recollections & the ribbon is from my stash. Hope you like it!
