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.
When I saw that part of the Christmas challenge this month was hat I knew this Santa was the guy for the job. I think a big part of the reason I fell in love with him was the amazing hat that he is wearing. The thing is that while I was making this card I realize that he looks a bit like a wizard as well. Now I have other ideas of how he might get used…
Sometimes I think the universe has a way of making me feel like I just need to stop questioning it. I try very hard to listen to what it has to tell me, but I must admit I am bad at second-guessing. The strip of paper on this card was in the baby section of paper at the store and I thought, well ok, it seems a bit more like anniversary or valentines. I came home and added it to my stash in the baby section thinking it would probably get used elsewhere… Look how perfect it fits on this baby card though.
Straitining up my desk the other day reminded me of some things that I just haven’t found the right place to use yet. The ampersand die has been one of those that I keep looking at and just not having the click as to where it would work right. It finally found its place! Yay!
