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.
The Easter bunny has come and left, and spring break is now over here. Hopefully, that means warm weather is officially on the way, but I am not going to hold my breath. I am just happy that spring cleaning should be done for the year! Now if we can just keep things in order until fall cleaning.
So many times I see cards that inspire me and make me want to make something similar, the great thing is that sometimes I see several different versions of ‘that card’ and it just makes me want to make it even more. This card is based on at least four other cards of a similar style. I think it is the clean and simple design that really speaks to me.
Sometimes it feels weird to make cards that I don’t really want to give to anyone but I still think are really beautiful. This is one of those cards. If I am giving it to someone it means they lost there fur baby and that is simply awful, so I don’t really want to ever give these cards. The thing is sometimes the cards are needed and I think that is why I try and make them as pretty as I can.
Love the fact that I was able to make a baby card that used paper with foxes on it with this fox stamp. I was planning on an owl card at first, and then I was looking at my baby paper stash and this was just to perfect!
This weekend got away from me! I have been trying to post this card but getting Valentine’s cards ready took precedent. I helped my nephew make a card for his teacher and while he addressed his class cards I addressed my cards to mail. I honestly thought I had another week, good thing he keeps me on track!
