Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge (2) #18

This is my second time doing the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. I'm sure I'll do better with time and practice. So, this time the theme is "Child's Play" and I decided to do a birthday card for a child. I made one earlier for a birthday party that my son went to for his friend who was turning 7. Since the card was well received there, I improved upon it and thought I'd post it here for this challenge. I'm glad to participate!

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
