I decided to make a wiper card to share with you today.  My niece **Gabriella’s 6th birthday is on Apr 26 and I still needed to make her a card so this was perfect timing!  I love that the pattern paper included in the kit has lots of pink on it since that’s her favorite color!   I added some simple buttons and pink gingham ribbon as embellishment.  This card was so easy to make, it came together in under an hour!  The hardest part is trying to narrow down what images to use because there are so many fun ones in the set that will enable you to make MANY varieties of cards for all sorts of occasions!

Here is a picture of the wiper part showing at the top – I bet she will love this, she always loves the cards I make her but I know she will adore that I moves!!  Oh, and that it has butterflies on it too.  I stamped the greeting ‘May All Your Wishes Come True” on the pattern paper with black ink to make it pop. 

IMG_3994Here is a recent picture taken of us** together last week I spent Gabby’s  Spring Break in CA with her and her brother.  We had a lot of fun together!  I can hardly believe how much she’s grown since I saw her Nov ‘10; in kindergarten and now reading, writing, doing math and still dancing!   We took them to the Ice Creamery where we indulged in some good old fashioned ice cream sundae creations – oh my!! 

Now hop on over to Emily’s blog for more Gina K. goodness!!!

I wish there was a video showing your wiper card. I don't think I've seen one before. I gather there's something that goes across the top when the card opens. Nice choice of colors. I like your card.
