Super quick post for you today.....the little man is up and running (literally) so time is short :) I wanted to play along with this week's SFYTT challenge but I have to admit it's not my favorite card. Not sure why but this one isn't doing it for me....I feel like it's missing something but I can't pin point what and I don't want to add anything more really because I don't want it to be too busy *sigh* So....here you go...not my favorite but still kinda cute *wink* I had originally made this card for one of my daughter's friends birthday-hence the super girly colors. But the more I look at the image I'm not 100% sold on using it for a 5 year old (it's the legs that are throwing me off....they seem a little on the too sexy side for a 5 year old...). I don't know maybe I'm crazy but I'm pretty sure I'll be making her another card before her birthday party this weekend.
Materials used: magna fairy (sugar nellie); pretty in pink, chocolate chip cs (SU); x-press blending paper; certainly celery, mambo melon dp (SU); tuxedo black (memento); copics; white gel pen; spica glitter pens; flowers (prima); button (SU); rhinestones (SU); brown polka dot ribbon (american crafts)
So the little man is totally mobil these days! He had taken his first few steps when we were in CA but then he pretty much only took a step or two a day for the next few weeks....then over the course of this week he's finally decided that walking is *way* more fun than crawling....and running?? Well that's even better :) And he knows how to open the baby gates (you know the ones that are supposed to keep him *IN*..yeah those...so needless to say I spend most of his awake time chasing him...literally :) Add to that an active four year old's social schedule and a husband that has been working a lot of late nights this week and you get a very tired Merry! But thankfully my husband is off this weekend so I can have another set of eyes (and legs) to watch the little (get into trouble) man! Maybe I can even sneak in a nap (or two) for me!! Well one can dream........
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)
