So, you've only heard...er, read...me sharing about a bazillion kazillion times that my sweet niece, Ms. T will be starting Grade 1 tomorrow (or today, depending when you've stopped to visit). While that is quite exciting for her, let's just say that Aunty C is...well, excited and nervous. She's a smart, sweet, personable gal...and her curiosity and zest or learning knows no bounds. Heck, I'd love to be her teacher *for reals* (I "might" be a just a bit envious of those who will be...); on the other hand, on some levels, I can still teach her stuff...or, as the case often is, she can teach me. Yes, being her aunty is the best. job. ever.
To mark this 'momentous' occasion, I made her a card (images from Alley Way stamps); a water-coloured one, no less! It's much prettier in real life, with sparkles on the crayon and paste, and glossy accents on the bookworm's glasses. Inside, I stamped: You've got it made. You've got SMARTS! She does...oodles of smarts...and cuteness, too!
As you can see, my design inspiration comes from CAS(E) This Sketch #187
After work tomorrow, I'm heading her direction. Hopefully, all will go well - big girl britches are ready-to-wear for the solo highway drive - and I can deliver it in person. Hope she likes it and I'm especially looking forward to having her read me the sentiment inside!!
