Today is Izzi's 7th birthday...where do the years go?
As with most little girls, I'm sure, she is 7 going on 27 and thinks Nannie (and especially her shoes) just 'has no style'! I love her to bits and am incredibly thankful for her - she's my only grandchild.
I'm going to pick her up from school with my son and his wife, then we're all going out, so I won't be around much at all today.

My contribution to Leah's Art Every Day Month. today is her birthday card... which was fun (but a bit fiddly) to make. I used Oxides for the background, with lots of spatters of water, silver and white acrylic and Promarkers/Copics and Glitter Gel Pens for the aliens. The words didn't stamp properly because the stamp is uneven, which is such a shame, but I think I'll get away with that...there are lots of glittery bits - even glittery starry night embossing powder around the edges AND a few gems...which I very rarely use. Little girls like glittery things 😉
Inside it says, 'You are my favourite earthling'.

I'm playing along with 
Addicted to Stamps and more's ATG challenge
Stamp & Fun = Creativity, Stars
Send a Smile 4 Kids, ATG (or Christmas/holidays)

Thanks for popping in today
I'll be back soon

Well, Happy Birthday to Izzi! What a lucky little girl she is to have you as her Nannie who can make her such wonderful birthday cards. I love it! The colours, the figures, the glitter (`I don't do glitter either but can understand why this has glitter etc) and the words are all fabulous. Love what you have put on the inside - that is so cute and a message full of love.
Enjoy your day out with the family - what fun you will all have.
Hugs, Neet xx

Utterly adorable card and perfect coloring, too. I'm not big on glitter, but since little girls seem to like it, I bet Izzi will, too. I hope she has a wonderful birthday and you have a lovely time out with her and your family.
