Anna's 6!

Happy Birthday to our sweet Anna!  Today she is 6!  It's amazing how time flies, isn't it?!  I remember so well the morning I woke up and realized it was time to meet this second baby of ours.  As we drove to the hospital in the midst of a snow storm I was looking forward to finding out "who" we were having - I was so sure she would be a boy - lol!!
Anyway, this is the card I came up with for Anna's birthday - it matches her invitations and goes with her requested gingerbread theme.  We had a little party last night with the grandparents. Nana made the cute cake that looked like a gingerbread house.  The children sure had fun eating all the candies and frosting!
Today for her "real" birthday we'll make a big gingerbread cookie in a large gingerbread man shaped cookie pan that my aunt gave our children a few years ago.  They can't wait to decorate it - probably eating more than decoration! :)

In case you wondered, the stamps for her card are Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I stamped her with Raspberry Fizz ink and colored her with  an E55 Copic marker.  The "frame" behind her is from Very Vintage Labels No. 4 which I love! Having frames to stamp that match the Nesties is just so fun!
Happy Birthday Anna - we love you lots!! MWAH!
