My Other Daughter

Now before you jump to conclusions, I am not revealing some deep dark secret. I do not have another biological daughter but I do have some young ladies that I think of as daughters and this one definitely fits the bill!

Leslie, is the daughter of my best friend and mentor. She is 5 years younger than Vanessa. When Vanessa was little she spent as much time with Leslie as she did at home. They are like sisters. I developed a friendship with Leslie when I kept my horses at her parents property North of town. We discovered our mutual love of horses and often rode together and she helped me a lot with caring for mine when I couldn't as they lived about 15 miles from town.

Leslie or "Lezlee" as she prefers to have her name pronounced turns 24 today. In honor of her day I made this card for her.
This image is a Phyllis Harris Design made into a rubber stamp and sold by Unity Stamp Co. I used my Copic Markers to color the image. Leslie's horse is a Buckskin. I tried to color this horse to look like hers. The sentiment I stamped on paper then carefully cut around it and popped with dimensional tape . I used my markers again to color the heart then covered it with glossy accents. I took a strip of some scrap Authentique DP to add to the card.

Happy birthday Leslie! What a blessing you have been to me! May your day be all you hoped and more!
