You know how on that show, New Girl, Schmidt calls cardigans, "cardies"? I love that. And I love cardigans. Cardies. I wish this post was about like ten recent cardigan purchases. Alas, it is not. I could wear a cardie every day and be happy. I've been giving Ben some not-so-subtle hints that I want some cardies and plain ole' shirts for our anniversary next Monday. He's so cute - he buys me skirts and dresses for, like, every occasion. Birthday. Mother's Day. Anniversary. Valentine's Day. Christmas. I finally had to text him and say, "Kay, babe, I have like a hundred church outfits. But I have maybe five shirts I can wear here at home and running the kids around. Can I just...have some normal, casual shirts for an anniversary gift?"
I had to have the same talk with him about accessories. He loves to buy me chunky costume jewelery. And I loooove costume jewelery. But he kept buying me black jewelery. I probably have 5 black necklaces, 7 black bracelets, and like 15 pairs of black earrings. So I had to gently sit him down at Christmas time a few weeks ago and say, "You know how I love costume jewelery. But I cannot have one more black item. I need some colorful stuff."
And he gave me a black and gold bracelet in my stocking.
At least there was some gold involved?
I shouldn't complain. I'm lucky he remembers important events and has pretty good taste.
So I've made some cards in the past couple of months that I wanted to throw on here. First up are some little boy birthday cards that my friend Megs requested:
Fearlessly Creative Mamas, and she wanted me to do a tutorial on how to create a card. You can find the tutorial here. It's really detailed and kind of shows the creative process, as well as the mechanics of making a card. Enjoy this, because I never do tutorials. They make me want to gouge my eyeballs out. So teeeeedious...
