It is MONDAY, the first Monday of the month, the month of April?! Didn’t we just celebrate Christmas; and now Easter has come and gone! What?!

When I was growing up, I remember saying that I couldn’t wait until ___(fill in the blank) and my mom would say to stop wishing away time, that when I got older time would get faster and faster. My mom just gets more and more right all the time…

Now it is time for a sketch challenge at FTHS (Sketch#104).


For today’s project, I am making a bday card for my favorite little guy in England – He is turning 6 (again, how is this possible?) This is the last bday in England – my cousin will be back in the states this summer for a three year stay in Rhode Island (thank you Air Force). So I won’t have to plan cards and packages quite so far in advance (which is awesome considering I am really not great at advanced planning).

Today I used one of From the Heart Stamps’ new images Party Hat Birdbrain – who doesn’t love a birdbrain and this hi-larious one will be a great one for my purposes.
