It's my Daughter's 19th Birthday today!!!

I cannot believe how fast time flies by. Today is my Daughters (Alina's) 19th Birthday. I feel like she was just that little bossy girl yesterday and now she's completed her freshmen year in college, is on the dean's list for her grades, and becoming a beautiful, determined, independent young lady who wants to be a pilot like her Dad. I don't know how all of that happened so fast. I'm so proud of you Alina!

I just love this rubber stamp from Stamping Bella called "Bossy" by Mo Manning
I've had this stamp several years now and just love it. It always reminds me of my daughter. lol!

Painting a cockatoo Lindy's stamp gang Magical powders

Well i really wanted to enter the monthly Lindy's stamp gang color challenge so i drew this bird and painted him with Lindy's magicals. I only used 2 of the colors from the challenge palette but i really like the colors. (see below)
I haven't decided whether or not i'm going to frame this or make a card with it yet. I did go ahead and put a Black Mat around the image.
