I just have to ask a very simple question before I get to today's card. That question would be, "Can you believe that as of tomorrow it is going to be 2013?" I for one really can not believe it. It seems that with every new year they all just go faster and faster. I know I am getting older and with having children that too makes time fly.
OMword, it was just summer and the M&Ms were just getting ready for the first day of 9th grade. Now, they are almost done with the first half of it and soon they will be sophomores and my Sister's youngest son will have graduated from High School come this June.
We do have a lot of wonderful things that are coming for our family in 2013. To begin with we have two weddings coming up for two of our nieces this year. Our niece Erica is getting married very soon on January 26th, she is Jerry's Sister's oldest daughter. I can not wait to see her in her wedding gown.
Just this weekend we found out that my cousin's daughter Michelle will be getting married on August 17th. Michelle is also a very beautiful girl and I just know that she is going to make a very beautiful bride as well. We are so excited and happy for them both. The only down part to both is that one is in Arizona and the other will be in Kentucky. That means that there is no way that we will be able to attend either one of them, but I did get asked to make the invitations for Michelle's wedding, so I will get to have alot of fun helping out and we all know that is very exciting for any cardmakers. lol
I know I said I was going to make this short, but you know me. lol.... So today's card is another one I made for my co-worker's granddaughter. I didn't realize that I don't really have any 'celebrating' kind of stamps, so my first thought was to make a card with Cheeky Shooter and say "Happy New Year" on the outside, and on the inside "hope you have a rootin tootin good time", but then I got to thinking that the girl is only 10 and who knows if she'll be awake or asleep or I don't know. So I left it more so that her grandma could write her a note. I hope you like it as it really didn't come out like I had envisioned it. :O\
Hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year. Talk at you later.
