So what happens when you realize at the VERY last minute you forgot to make your daughter's birthday card that you have been planning for weeks to make??!  You ditch your original idea of a card and go with plan B.  Plan B is to quickly throw something together that involves very little work.  
Brittany LOVES Mary Poppins!  So when I saw KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS came out with THIS Mary Poppins stamp I knew that I would have to make her a birthday card with it.  Like I said this card was not in my original plan.  I really wanted to play with coloring her up, but I knew with very little time left to make it, I would stress myself out if I rushed to color it.  I'm kinda weird like that ;)
The image is stamped on kraft paper, on white for the clouds and on some patterned paper for her umbrella and carpet bag.  I'm not quite sure if I like the card or not as it is not my style, kind of plain and very little color, but my daughter loved it so all is good.

Here is a picture of Brittany with Mary Poppins from our trip to Disneyland a few months ago.  You can just see in her face how happy she is to be standing next to Mary.  She may have just turned 23...but she is still 5 to me in this picture.  :)
