Twinkle Star #2 ("Blue for Boys)...CAS(E) this Sketch #19

Hello again; I'm back with a card for my nephew that came about after our Skype episode on Saturday (I shared this in my previous post).   At age 1, my nephew's not much a conversationalist, but he sure holds his own on 'looking cute as a button' on the Skype screen.  Even though I missed his first birthday (sad, sad, sad!), 'in person,' at least we had a 'post party exclusive audience' visit.  Glad I figured out this Skype thing, although I could be spending grande amounts of time chatting with my long-distance sweeties...I rather like that possibility!!

With CAS(E) this Sketch #132 as inspiration,

I made a simple card 'thinking about you' card for the little guy, as a companion to the one I made for my niece.  

Hope he likes his stars and hearts - because he sure brings twinkles and love into my life - and the life of all of us!!  Who knew being an Aunty would be so awesome!!

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope you're feeling love today, from the stars that twinkle in your life.

I will never forget becoming an Auntie & that was over 30 yrs ago! It's just so special! You came up with the perfect card--it's a treasure, Carol! PS--I gave Keesha a pat on the head from you.

I love being an Auntie. I have two teenage sons - but my nieces are sweet little girls and it's so fun to chat with them and get an entirely different perspective!! Both of your cards are charming and so full of love! Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Hey Carol - It's me again! You just left another lovely comment on my blog - thank you so much. I'm glad you mentioned my recent comment on your twinkle star card - because I like to check out people who spend time on my blog, but your blogger profile isn't public so I haven't been able to figure out who "cm" is who comments on my blog! Now I know!! Do you mean to not have your blogger profile be public? It does make it tough for the rest of us to find you!!!

Hi there, Carol! Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog today - you put a big smile on my face! :) If you go to the Purple Onion site and click on Stephanie Ackerman you'll find the flower and lots of other similar designs. I love her drawing style!

The card you created for your nephew is adorable! I love the layered die cuts and the way you scattered the hearts around that sweet sentiment. Your nephew is a lucky guy to have such a cool aunt! :)

All of the elements you have chosen combine into the sweetest little boy card! Oh, and can I say how perfectly placed all of those elements are too! The rounded sentiment stamp compliments the scalloped layers just so well! Yup, love this one too!
