The season of birthday parties is in full swing! While I work tomorrow, Pete will once again perform the parental duty of dropping a kid and presents off and keep his fingers crossed that she doesn’t melt down when left with a crowd. Like her dad, Heather is not a big fan of gathering with large amounts of people and gets rather emotional – as you can see in the previous post picture. Oh well, que sera, sera.
Here are the cards I made for her friends’ party tomorrow. Yes, my punctuation is correct there – the birthday party is for twins. So, as they were at her party last week, I happen to have pictures of them which I used on their cards. Not that you will see their faces. They aren’t my kids, so I’m not posting them without permission. And just to prove that Heather did enjoy her party, I temporarily stuck her happy, shining face over those of the twins.
As the twins are not identical, the cards aren’t either. Actually, I wouldn’t have made matching cards even if they were identical! It’s okay for me to dress my girls the same as they aren’t the same ages (and they like it) but I suspect (hope) that parents of identical twins try to assist them in becoming unique individuals?! Anyone care to comment? Anywho, back to the cards. Here they are individually.
Not only are the cards not identical, one is pink based & the other is blue. Yup, you guessed it! The twins can’t be identical ’cause they are not even the same gender! Fortunately, their mom doesn’t dress them the same – the school tunic wouldn’t look as good on the little guy as it does on his sister.
I used some retired Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up (of course), Old Olive ink. chipboard that I made to look like faux metal and a mini library clip. Can anyone tell me why they are called library clips?? I’ve worked in a library for almost 12 years now and never, ever has anyone here used a clip so tiny, teeny nor ever referred to the big black bulldog clips as library clips. Anyone?
Th’ first thing to have in a libry is a shelf.
Fr’m time to time this can be decorated with lithrachure.
But th’ shelf is th’ main thing.
