From Courtney's Closet #60 - an inspiration challenge

Remember long, long ago on a blog far, far away... well ok not far away, THIS BLOG... there used to be a weekly challenge where my sweet daughter became blog fodder as I made a card based on one of her outfits?? Wellllllll... the time has come for From Courtney's Closet to make a return! I realize there are about a zillion blog challenges out there these days, so I don't really expect a bunch of you to play along - I'm just doing this because *I* think it's loads of fun. BUT... you know I'd be thrilled if you did join me!! So without further ado, here's today's card:

It was inspired by Courtney's Easter dress this year. It pretty much feels at home on this blog. Gee, can you tell what my favorite colors are? hee hee When I saw this new Hero Arts Rose Background stamp, I *knew* it was the perfect stamp to match this dress! Oops, I still haven't SHOWN you the dress. Here it is - and of course Courtney is riding on a pony, because isn't that what everyone does in their best Easter dress??

Here's a shot of the back of the dress - I adore the bow, so of course I had to incorporate that into my card.

Can you believe how much bigger my little bug is compared to the last time I shared a photo of her for card inspiration?? Time is a-flyin'! Courtney turned two in February. TWO!! She's pretty much potty trained (except at night) and she's talking up a storm these days. She's silly as can be and cracks herself up all the time. She adores her big brother and wants to be doing whatever he's doing. Sigh. She makes her mama proud! So now you're all caught up with the goings-on of Miss Courtney. Time to make a card!! I hope you'll join me. If you do, leave a link below so I can check it out! And if you don't? No worries, I'll still be back next week with another Courtney-inspired creation to amuse myself. hee hee
