Next week, Monday actually!!! Is little Miss E's 3rd Birthday... where did that time go!!??
Anyhoo... Big Sis, Miss J has been very excited about the preparations of Miss E's birthday celebrations and has been busy helping me get her presents, which all seem to be from Miss J now!! Hmmmm and of course wrapping them, which is a masterpiece in itself, and if the amount of sticky tape ripping last night was anything to go by, that present may never, ever actually get opened!!!
The biggest excitement for Miss J though was getting to create her very own birthday card to give to her little sister, and can I say that i hope that enthusiasm, love and joy continues for ever and ever.
Let me paint the scene for you! Miss J had begun negotiations at the beginning of the week for staying up a little later when Miss E went to bed so she could wrap the present and make a card, and last night was THAT night!!! After wrapping the present and being ever so proud of her efforts she ventured into MY craft room and reappeared with the following goodies:-
- A BIG armful of DSP!!;
- One Extra Large Bird Punch;
- An armful of Stampin' Spots!!.. They're all hers now and she LOVES having all "these colours Mummy";
- One Avery Stamp set; and
- A "Mummy can you please bring the Cleaning Scrubs" ( ie stampin' scrub).
Soooo... after some serious colour choosing, placement assessment, punching, colouring and of course STAMPIN', here is the final masterpiece:-
She was SO very proud of her card.. and well I was SUPER, SUPER proud. I think her proudest moment may of actually been when after a little discussion trying to figure out if she could get the 'Purple' Birdcage (the one with the owl in it) to have a stand on it. I told her that I wasn't sure she could without it going through her other cage... but she was determined to show me that it could be done.. and well as you can see, she did it.. followed with a big smile and a " See Mummy, I told you I could do it!!" :-)
Please leave her a little comment, I know she'd LOVE to hear what you think.
Thanks for stopping by.
