ella turns 8!!!

ella is 8 today, and I made this super quick card to commemorate the day. I used a sheet from big top birthday dsp to make the background and accent and the big top birthday quick accents for the tag, and used the happiest birthday wishes hostess set for the sentiment.  I'm not very good at making the whirlygig things, I'll have to practice!  I used a 2" square of dsp and cut from each corner in to close to the center, then added holes for the rhinestone brad with the pokey tool.  putting the brad through the holes and then through the center is where I had trouble.  everyone else has really nice looking results.  I really need to practice!  after I made ella her card, I made her birthday "cake" with meatloaf and mashed potatoes, with crumbled bacon on the sides.  she loved it.  I have many more pictures of the "party" on my puppy blog if you're interested!
