Happy Thursday, everyone!  What a gorgeous day we had yesterday! I am afraid we are having our September in August……and we might have our August in September, yikes!  Anyway, August 17 is rolling around…and that is Cassidy’s third birthday!  So when I saw Rita’s lovely sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches this week, I knew I would use it to make my wee DGD’s card!  First, here’s the sketch:
Ah, she had me when I saw the three circles!  I used images from A Fitting Occasion, and since they are small, I made my card notecard sized:

Cassidy will be the first one to tell you that her favorite color is GREEN!  So Grammy made sure there was some green in here, along with some other yummy colors:


I think cutting out those three candles is the tiniest fussy-cutting I’ve ever done!  And then the inside:


Oh my, how can she be three already?!  Here are some pictures of her eating a mini cupcake from a week or so ago….not her birthday cupcakes, but another batch I made.  Needless to say, eating a cupcake to Cassidy means just eating the frosting….a girl after my own heart!


Enjoy your day!
