Sometimes a card seems to come around right after I would have liked to have had it. One of my nephews graduated from preschool this year and this would have been the perfect card! I just think it means that there is another reason that it is meant to be. Possibly when his little brother does the same in a couple of years…
Just when I think that I am fairly well read and this challenge will be easy… I am loving it though, my to read list is growing and that actually makes me happy. My poor husband has started to get confused by my talk of the various book challenges that I am partaking in at any given time. I just really like to read, anything and everything really, in fact, the one spot I was a bit of hold out on (comics/graphic novels) has now become a daily read as well.
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.
