Sweet Sixteen

A very special young lady turned 16 yesterday. My baby is growing up so fast. I am constantly thankful that she is such an amazing, warm, and caring person. She constantly thinks of others first and she’s always willing to lend a helping hand. She is a treasure. 

One of Maddie’s quirks is her unending love for Winnie the Pooh. Pooh as been her constant companion since she was very small. I think it started with the fact that he fit in her tiny hands. This is Maddie in front of the Winnie the Pooh ride at Disneyland just a couple weeks ago.And this is her with her favorite Poohs in 2004. Fourteen years later and I think she still loves him just as much as when she was little. Even though she’s closer to being an adult now, I knew she would love a Pooh card. The Pooh stamp is one I’ve had for years and it is not Stampin Up. The red balloon is from our stamp set Balloon Celebration. If you’re familiar with the Pooh stories, you might recall he has a fondness for a little red balloon. Pooh says “Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon”.Aside from the Pooh stamp and brown ink, all other supplies are Stampin Up. I used our Blends to color both Pooh and the balloon. I used Mango Melody to color the bear. It makes a surprisingly good Pooh color. 

Maddie, I am so excited to see where your future takes you. The world is full of possibilities and opportunities. I am confident you will find your calling. And it will take you far!
