German Phrase of the Day: Wir streiten uns oft. = We argue a lot. This is very true of my daughter and I, ESPECIALLY when Daddy is away. Something about not having that buffer really seems to set us off. I thought the arguments between mother-daughter were something for the teen years, but apparently they show up at preschool age!! Maybe by the time she's a teen we'll have gotten this all out and we'll be best friends already...I can only wish!
Today's card is for the challenge issues by Christie 2 weeks ago to make a green and white card. She posted this beautiful inspiration photo. So with flowers in mind I sat at my desk and flipped through my patterned paper collection. This beauty is from my Basic Gray Lily Kate 6 by 6 collection. I thought it captured the beauty of the green and white flowers perfectly! And of course, Sophia had to have a matching dress. I colored her with my prisma pencils and some Spica glitter pens. See the little bling I added to the flower center?? I love it! I made the scalloped piece with my SU! slit punch and tied some celery grosgrain and organdy around it. The sentiment is also from the Flutter By Sophia set.
This card will be flying to Jules soon...along with my project for her challenge from last week, turning Trash to Treasure! This week's challenger is Charmaine, so be sure to go check her blog for our next Prettie Challenge!
