My little ladybug girl has grown up and is now a bit more of a Nancy Drew. They do have a tendency to do that. Growing up I mean. It is fun and a bit frustrating, but I love seeing what comes next. I also have let them all know that as Auntie I reserve the right to always be able to refer to them by my favorite nicknames for them. I am pretty sure that is in the Auntie contract.
The name for this card is supposed to be a play on a partridge in a pear tree. It was either that or something about the meowiest of ornaments. Sometimes I have problems naming things. I had a lot of pets with either bad names or no names, in fact, my first doll was called naked baby.
Can you find the butterfly? I was having fun channeling my inner hide and seek book authors making this card. I could have made it a lot more difficult, but I think that it is still fun that the butterfly isn’t completely obvious at first glance.
New stamps! It is always so much fun to get new stuff to be creative with. Yesterday I just couldn’t help myself I needed to make a card right away with this stamp set. I love all of the swirly designs and this one is just so fun and pretty.
So last weekend when my nephew and I visited the craft store I noticed that Crayola was on sale. He has been wanting some decent colored pencils and I have wanted watercolor colored pencils for a while now. When I did my online research Crayola was actually rated fairly highly, so we got some. I am loving them! I just want more colors now, and so I am looking at what my next step is…
Making this card I was thinking about the fact that we are coming up on our twenty-year mark this November. My nephew and I were talking about marriage and I told him we found someone who we were friends with, but the most important thing was realizing we are better together than we ever were apart. We compliment one another even if we don’t always agree on everything.
