If you read my previous post (and thank you for doing so...I know I'm a chatterbox at times), you'll know how much I adore my niece and nephew. Leaving them is not fun. Not even a little bit. This time, the 'heading home good-byes' took place at the birthday party we were attending, as I had to be back at my mom's to meet up with my husband, who was working at a bike race.
My nephew, just turned two, is on stage with this highlight...
Me: Okay, Mr. C... Aunty C has to go now.
Mr. C: Why? (and a cutie-patootie little sad face is now in my field of vision...sighh...).
Me: Because I have to go back home...
Mr. C: When I going to see you again, Aunty C? (okay, my heart is melting at this point. Little gaffer knows how to push the buttons...)
Me: In two weeks, and then you'll be coming to Aunty C's house (more on that later).
Mr. C: No two weeks, Aunty C...two minutes (and with that he gave me a big hug...and headed off back to the crazy, zany birthday festivities).
Another tug of the heart-strings. It's neat that they don't quite have a concept of time at that age, but I do. I want the two minutes version of seeing them again!!
My card is another 'must attempt the diagonals' creation, rather than run the other direction! Inspiration for the sketch is from STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #12
and the colours/images from Just Us Girls Challenge #242: Photo Inspiration
My Beautiful Bloom is making another appearance, this time purple/pink embossed (I was trying out some old Versamark inks to see what happened if I added clear embossing powder).
In real life, it has a lovely shimmer....
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
