Look Who's Turning 5

I hope your Saturday is going well. The guys and I got up early to have breakfast at IHOP. Besides eggs, I ordered the Nutella crepes with bananas. Wow, very sweet and good. My mom used to make crepes years ago. I should get her recipe.

I've been reading and watching the news coverage about the earthquake devastation in Japan. My hearts go out to everyone affected. I'm amazed at the sheer power of this event. For the tsunami to reach my part of California is incredible.

On a happier note, here's a card I made for my niece, Saharra, who turned 5 last week.

The papers and stamps are all from Papertrey Ink. I love their new doily metal dies. So cool! I used my Silhouette digital cutter to cut the number 5. The font I used was  BodoniXT. You can download it for free here.

Thanks for stopping by!
