My Aunts gift to my dd for her 1st bday

My Aunt gave my dd a old fashioned sled for her 1st Birthday (which was on Saturday), this is the wooden sled with the red metal/wood back rest on the back of it. I gave my Aunt this hint, because I needed something for my dd to ride in when there is snow on the ground when we walk my oldest son to the bus stop. Lol, in these pictures my dd is getting pulled up and down our long hallway in ur house about 15 times or more! She refused to get out, she's get out then get right back in again to cry until someone would come along to pull her and she'd even wave as she was being pulled down the hall.

We used the slide for the first time this morning, we were all bundled up to walk my oldest son down to his bus stop and my dd was sitting in her sled. She sat there the whole way down to the bus stop and back with a huge smile on her face, giggling anytime she would go over a bump. The smile in the picture is the same one she had on to and from the bus stop, lol, too cute. She also lay all the way back with her head resting on the back of the backrest, I think she was watching the birds fly by and clouds move.

My dh's family had a Birthday party for her yesterday afternoon, which was nice since we had to put her Birthday on hold since my parents booked my Grandmother's funeral on my dd's bday (forgetting that the 8th was their Granddaughter's bday). My family will have a bday party for her next week along with my dh's bday, my nephews bday and my Uncle's bday, when things with the funeral have calmed down a bit!

Here is the card I made for my dd, I made it the other night when I was at Julie's house...once the girls were asleep I was able to get some things made and this was one of the things I made that night. I used a piece of blush cardstock for the cards base, then I cut out a piece of patterned paper from my slab of Autumn leaves paper from the slab called "Smitten" and attached it to the base using photo stickers. I then cut a piece of mellow moss cardstock out, used the ticket punch on the corners and then stamped a star frame around the outside edge of the cardstock using the versamark ink pad. The star stamp that I used, was from a Christmas border clear acryllic stamp set by Stampendous from Michael's about 2 months ago and thought this was the perfect time to use this set. I then used a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the little girl from the "Tu tu- terrific" SU stamp set and I colored her in using my Tombow markers. Next, I attached a piece of my light green "Straight 'n' Narrow" ribbon across the center of the card and then I attached the green piece of cardstock over top of the ribbon in the center of the card. I then took my cardstock with the little girl stamped on it and I attached it to the green framed cardstock using my photo stickers again :) ( you can never have enough of those photo stickers)!
