Tonight I needed a birthday card for my adorable great-nephew Kolby who turns five this week. I decided to go with a dinosaur theme & used this week's Sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You.
I stamped the skateboard from Kim Hughes' Little Boy stamps set & added a dinosaur sticker from Basic Grey's Archaic collection. For the vertical piece of the sketch, I added a border sticker to simulate the road. The sentiment started out as a single sticker, but I cut it into two little clouds to finish my design.
I also made this card for Sue's 52 Card Pick-up Theme this week which is Perfectly Imperfect. I believe if we all tried to embrace the joy of Playing Hard that we had when we were five years old, we would care much less about perfection, and so much more about being in the moment and enjoying every experience to its fullest ... whether it was jumping in mud puddles ... digging in the dirt ... climbing trees ... skipping rocks ... or jumping in piles of leaves (instead of worrying that we'll just have to rake them all back up again when we're done).
Here's one of my favorite pictures of Kolby & his great-grandma after he threw out the first pitch at a Cedar Rapids Kernels game this summer.
