Our sweet niece Rebecca is celebrating her 13th birthday today. We sang Happy Birthday to her on Skype, and Eric talked to her for a while. Too bad Australia is a bit too far away to go over and eat cake with her. Fortunately we'll be seeing Rebecca and her family in January 2012 when they come over to Europe for family visits. The birthday card I made for Rebecca is inspired by this card from Betsy Veldman. When we got back from holiday I really had to get in the mood for card making again and Betsy is always a great source of inspiration. My card didn't turn out as cute as Betsy's card as I was really struggling to make something, but Rebecca liked it anyway.
