Happy Emma's Day!

April 23rd is St George's Day in England (our Patron Saint)
But April 23rd is a much more special day for our family because today is my daughter's birthday, and it's an extra special birthday this year because Emma is 21 today!
Look at this posh photo she had taken professionally *proud Mom*

A daughter is love in a bright pink bow
A bundle of happiness all aglow
A tomboy in jeans with a tear streaked face
Crying because she has just lost a race.
Then all of a sudden, no longer small,
She's a vision of loveliness dressed for a ball
A dreamer, a schemer, no two days the same
What is a daughter...It's more than a name
She's a pleasure, a treasure, a comfort each day
Loving and sweet in her own special way
She's a sense of contentment felt deep inside
Bringing a lifetime of pleasure that fills us with pride

Happy Birthday Emma Louise ~ Love you xx
You can see the card we have sent to Emma HERE.

My friend Sandra, is also celebrating her birthday today!
Happy Birthday San! xx
Sandra is of course a member of our talented design team at Sketch Saturday.
And as it's saturday, it's time for a new sketch challenge :)
This week we are sponsored by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.

There's a sale on this weekend, you can get 15% off everything in the store by using the code BUNNY15, sale ends tomorrow so be quick to be sure to grab yourselves an Easter bargain!

Sparkle Smith very generously gave the DT some images to use on our cards this week, I chose Kitty Cat Josh, because it reminded me of my son Jake and our cat Tickle.
Here's my card...

Thank you to Sparkle for the image :)
I coloured Kitty Cat Josh with ProMarkers.
The checked green paper is by Stampin Up, the colour is Always Artichoke.
Both the blue and brown papers are from Nitwit, but I stamped the paw prints onto the brown piece using an inchie stamp from Tanda Stamps
The sentiment is from TLC creations

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
