My daughter turns 20

I don't know where the time goes, but somehow my sweet baby girl is turning 20 this week.  It seems like only yesterday, that I turned 20.  She's off at school for summer session but has come home for the weekend to celebrate her special day with family.  We already bought her an official birthday present, an air conditioner for her third floor city apartment that she got a couple weeks ago.  So, I needed to give her some kind of gift so I decided to make her tote bag that she picked out the material for when she was home for spring break.  It doesn't look like she and I will be home much at the same time for a while, so chances of her getting together with me to make the bag herself wasn't going to happen for a while.  So I've made the bag for her thinking it will be just what she wanted.  Here's the bag

And this is the card I made to go with her present.
I used pistachio and rose red and got my inspiration from a card in the SU catalog from last year.

Happy Birthday to your DD, Linda. Your gift is gorgeous! And the card is, too! I'm sure she loved them both!

The card matches the gift perfectly. The colors are pretty together. I am always in awe over sewing, since I can't stitch! Great tote!
