Happy Birthday Sweet and Sassy, Addy!

Hello Delightful friends and family!  Wow it's been over a month of lots of activities that kept me out of the craft room and away from my blog.  But with my little granddaughter turning four (Addy) I of course had to make her a card.  This  was inspired by the Wednesday sketch challenge at the MFT blog (MFTWSC127 ).  I didn't make the deadline to post today but that's okay, but I still want to give credit for the the great sketch inspiration. 
We had Addy's party on Saturday (however, her birthday is today) so I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures.

Here is the card I made her.  Love the Pure Innocence stamp set.  It fits little Miss Addy-tude to a "t".  I've colored the image with Copic Markers and paper pieced her outfit. At the end of this post has the rest of the "ingredients."


Addy told us that she wanted a Fishing rod for her birthday so guess what?  She got a fishing rod plus a tackle box, flotation vest, hat and of course some gummy worms for....bait! ha!

She blew out her candles, no problem!

Here she is all happy and ready to head to the river or lagoon for some fishin' time with Poppa!  They are making plans to go very soon!!

Thanks for looking, hopefully it won't be a month inbetween posts!  I've missed you all!
