Swing Card

Hope you  had a great weekend.  The weather here was beautiful.  We had a fun weekend!  Rachel had her family birthday party on Saturday - hard to believe that she turned 13th - we have a teenager in the family!  Last month I saw this card on Jackie Topa's blog and knew it was just  the card I wanted to make for her birthday.  Ever since she was little she loved to go on her swing! 

I didn't have all the punches Jackie used but made due with what I had.  I found some DSP in a scrap pack that looked like a tree, so I hand cut that as I didn't have the embossing folder.   I was really happy how it turned out and she loved it. For the inside of the card I printed a poem that I had found years ago and kept for the right occasion -

For Rachel
A granddaughter is a wonderful gift,
A treasure from above.
She fills our life with happiness,
Thoughtfulness and love.
A granddaughter brings a special joy
That comes from deep inside.
As she grows into adulthood,
She fills our heart with pride.
With every year that passes by,
She's more special than before.
Through every stage and every age,
We love her even more.
No words can describe the warm memories,
And all the joy and gratitude,
That comes from having a granddaughter
As special and loved as you.
Happy 13th Birthday Rachel!!!
 Here is a picture of  Rachel with her cake.

We hope you have a great week!

Thanks for stopping bye!
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
