Another quick post...the gallery at CAS(E) this Sketch #107
will be closing doors soon! I hemmed and hawed about this sketch for the entire week, then...a ping (channeling our sweet Bev!) happened this evening...
My card came about because I've realized I've been a bit of a *remiss* Aunty C of late, in sending "Happy Months Old" cards to my niece and nephew, on the 3rd and 12th of the month, respectively. While I did give them Christmas cards and an Advent Calendar, no December 'special' day card "fruitified" (one of my mom's words...I love it!). As for January...well...being with them in 'real' time was certainly added light to our otherwise sad days. Net result though: still no card!
Time to address that little issue, and today's card is my 'return' to 'trying' to get back into my routine. My nephew, Mr. C, is 'nearly' three...gahhhh!! I've explained to him quite clearly that he must stop growing up so quickly! He is, however, not three YET! Rather, on February 12th, he'll be 35 months old, or if your prefer, 2 and 11/12's months old. Not three! So, I've made him a Happy 35 Months Old card, with a new CB stamp/die set, that I bought especially with Mr. C in mind.
The blue 'sky' (the spots aren't meant to be rain...just spots in the patterned paper) is popped up, with the helicopter nestled inside. The clouds are actually speech bubbles with the 'speaking' part trimmed off...adapting, adapting. Hope he likes it. The stamp/die set has a couple more 'flying' images, so hopefully his current helicopter/plane phase will last for a while longer (it competes with his Spiderman fascination...).
