Hannah-Spanner's Card

Hi, and welcome!

Not had time to do much crafting, this week, but knew that I definitely had to get a birthday card made for my Hannah....she's our eldest grandchild, and will turn 17 on Sunday.....I know!....unbelievable that I could actually have a grandchild THAT old.......bwwwaaahhhh!

It certainly doesn't seem 17 years since my own first-born was giving life to her first-born.........I was over-joyed to be at the birth, and was simply awe-struck, as I watched that dark-eyed little beauty come into the world.....she was, and is, amazing.
Joanne and Alex named their first child Hannah Marie, (Joanne is Joanne Marie)......but she soon became Hannah-Spanner............well, my youngest (Jonathan) only turned 6 years old a few days before Hannah was born, so they've been more like brother and sister than uncle and!

Hannah is at college, workin' away at what she needs to do to become a music producer........she has a Saturday job at a local radio station, and is doin' really well.
She's a talented pianist, sings in a choir, and is very active in our churchs' Young  Women's I said, folks....she's AMAZIN'!!!
Biased Grandma?.....Moi?............Yep.


Did I mention that Hannah also plays the guitar.....not braggin'....just sayin', this cutie was just the job!

I'm still at the "workin' on it" stage for my hand-made flowers, so these rose centres do look a bit ropey on the Prima blooms, lol......

As soon as I saw this rockin' girlie, I knew I'd use her for Hannah's card....she was a freebie from the very talented Sara, over at you, Sara!
Hannah has this length and colour hair, too!

I love lace, in all colours and always seems to soften whatever you use it on.........

.....and this sentiment says exactly how I feel about Hannah........of course, everything is coloured with Promarkers.......

I used my Martha Stewart border punch on the front edge of the card stock, then did the same on the backing paper.....layered two scraps of DP onto white card, and topped with a pretty paper doily.....simples!

Let me know whatcha think.....I luuuuurve your comments, lol.....

I love challenges:

  1. The card is great! I love the contrast of the lacey bits with the "rocker" stamp. Hannah should love it!

    (And my "oldest grandkid" is two years older than me! My great-grandson is 3! And somedays I feel old enough to have grandkids and a great-grand that old!)

  2. This card is Rocking AM! love all the lace, as I always do :) Your Hannah sounds so very talented, sure she will go far and reach her dreams*
    Think your handmade flowers are way past the workingo n stage, they look so much tighter than the ones I attempted the other day... you talented crafter you :)
