As I wrote earlier this week, I've been trying to replenish my card "stash". After a busy day yesterday (soooo much to catch up on after a week of Jury Duty!) and a busy morning, I was anxious to get to my stamping nook (I call it a nook because it's a small area in the corner of the family room). I put my 1 year old down for his morning nap, and was on my way to stamp when my 3 year old came running up to me. He gave me a huuuge hug and said, "Mom, will you make me a card"? Stunned, I said, "what"? He then told me how pretty my cards were and he wanted one too! My heart melted right there on the spot! Of course I said, "you bet"!! So, here is the card for my son!
When I sat down to make this card, I immediately knew which stamp set I wanted to use. Bryan LOVES airplanes!! I also thought how this set would be perfect for today's Way to Use it Challenge over at Splitcoast (the challenge was to use one of the soon to be retired sets). I used two retiring sets- By Air and Play on Words.
Since I'm writing about my son Bryan, I thought I'd share this picture of him. He's riding on one of his favorite toys - an airplane! The airplane is actually my 1 year old's, but for Bryan, it was love at first sight! He loves to pretend that he's one of the Koala Brothers (a cartoon on either Disney Kids or Nick Jr.) and he "flys" around the house looking for people to rescue!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
