A Birthday card for Lexi

Tomorrow, my little granddaughter Lexi will be seven years old. Where has the time gone? I remember when her mother was that age and it seemed like yesterday. Lexi loves kitties and because of that I made her a card with a kitty. I even let her look at the Digi images at Pink Cat studio and pick out her favorites. She was leaning heavily towards this one and I liked it too, so I ordered it. I also ordered the other ones she liked so that she could color them. I love Digi images because you can have them instantly and they are less expensive. I didn't even have to color this image, it came that way. I was given the option of plain or colored when I ordered. I wasn't sure what they meant by that, so I ordered colored. Well, that's what they meant. Lol. To give it a special touch and make it "mine," I printed a second image and cut out the wagon, balloon, hats and flowers and gave them a 3d look. I used buttons for the balloons. And, proudly, I say this is the cutest card I have ever made.
