When our pup turned one we had a birthday party for him. Honestly, it was more for the kids than anything else. I do try and spoil him a bit on his ‘special day’. Our first pup was a rescue dog and we had no idea when his birthday was, so we celebrated the day he joined our family as “Calvin Dog Day” He had a weakness for strawberry ice cream so he always got some on that day. (There was a year he was the only one to get any of the strawberries my grandfather grew in his garden)
There is a point where you realize that you did something slightly ‘wrong’ but it is too late to fix. I didn’t realize that I had grabbed the wrong sheet of cardstock for the scalloped edging (it was supposed to be a darker green) until I had already attached everything to the front of the card. It’s not that big of an oops, but it still makes me frustrated with myself.
Something about the look on the kitty’s face, I think, kept making me think of Professor McGonagall. Of course, the hat doesn’t hurt with that.
Last year Michaels had some really fun packs of Valentine’s cardstock. One of the packs was a Galentine’s day pack and I kind of feel in love with it. I think this was one of the perfect times to get to use it.
So, on the last card, I did blue flowers in a pink cup and on this card I switched it and did pink flowers in a blue watering can. Which were the colors I picked for this project before realizing that they were the inverse of the last card, but it almost feels like it was a planned…it really wasn’t!
