When my girls were little we would read book after book. I always seemed to have my favorites though because of the way they would point their little fingers at the pictures or would anticipate the next page and help me "read," being they knew the story so well.
Karen Lockhart created an adorable IB Goodnight Moon with this last release and the memories came flooding back when I first saw the image. One of our favorite books was "Guess How Much I Love You." So today I created this little card to give to Katrina as her "after birthday card." Sometimes no matter how hard I try to get it "all" done I seem to fail, so this year I decided that an after birthday card is just as special as an on her birthday card Ü
Using papers from the Sweetbay Memory Box collection I created the little foursome representing our family. Being I didn't have the exact sentiment I wanted I opted to use a journaling box and penned the sentence from one of our old favorite books on to my label using my Copic multiliner. I stamped, colored and cut out the IB Goodnight Moon and popped it off the surface of the label.
Using the Stardust glitter pen I added just a few stars behind the moon, added a little bling to the "ribbon" and balanced the bottom corner with a few gemstones in a coordinating green to the Prismacolor pencil colors I used on the moon and "ribbon."
We now are reading Roald Dahl books, but I think I'm going to pull out this old favorite book and give Trina this card tomorrow night when we have a chance to sit and read together again and I can share the story with her about how she once would "read" our favorite story with me. I'm not certain what's up with all the sentimental "mutterings" as of late, but I hope that you don't mind me sharing this part of my life and creative process with you. Thanks for stopping by to share in my life.
