Never Too Old!

Hello everyone! It's Pretties Tuesday over here on my blog today ... so of course I have a Paper Pretties card to share with you all. This card uses stamps from the "Rainy Day Friends" set ... isn't she just so cute! My layout for this card is last week's sketch challenge over on SCS ... it is such a fun sketch I had to use it again!

This set comes with a number of different sentiments ... I selected this one "You're Never Too Old To Jump Puddles" ...... I think I was inspired to select this one because of a email I had received earlier the day I created this card which was from a friend think a few of us for making her birthday feel sooooo special. She had also said in the email that being her age birthday's weren't important anymore .... well she is a few years younger then me and birthdays are still important to me ... so this sentiment struck a cord!

Now I have a few pieces of Paper Pretties News I want to share with you today.
