Sadly (again) it has been a couple of weeks between posts. I cannot believe how far behind I am. Time is fleeting, it evaporates and you play catch up constantly. I hope I am not the only one that is caught in this time warp!!??
This is what I gave to my niece (Jessica) for her birthday in APRIL!! (yes I am that far behind!!!) She was 2...where does the time go?? We were lucky enough to catch up with her in a park. All the pics taken were done in pursuit of a VERY energetic 2yo. This is Jess now.....
Her gift actually inspired my card. Anyone with a child under 7yo will be familiar with "Pillow Pets". They are insanely cute and have different characters. I chose a ladybug for Jess. Once again though...I ran out of time to make something appropriate to match. Fete however kindly intervened!! Before I started stamping, I made cards from all sorts of things. I stumbled across the lightweight wooden cutouts and mounted them up very basically. I simply added the number to the card I already had made and woo hoo!!!
The number I felt kept up the "dotty" theme of the ladybug.
Here are the gift and card together...kinda sweet I hope??
Thanks for popping by. I do love reading your thought and comments so much and appreciate the time taken to leave them.
