A young friend of mine is turning eighteen today. In spite of a rather difficult childhood she is a lovely and responsible young woman whose smile can light up a room. She is studying to be a nurse and she loves horses. Since I did not have any suitable horse related stamps, I sent her this card:

The digi stamp is a Kenny K. download that I coloured with Copics. After I had scanned my card, I realized that the birthday girl's eyes are blue not brown, so I went back and changed that on my card. Thank goodness for the colourless blender pen! :)

Colouring hair is still a struggle for me, but I am not ready to give up yet.

As I was sending out this card, I couldn't help but look back on my own life and where I was at eighteen. It was then I met and fell in love with my husband, in fact. I was such a baby still, yet I fancied myself to be so grown up. But, that's what adolescence is all about, isn't it?

Wishing you many happy stampin' hours! Isabelle
