Creating Pretty Cards #8
It is hard to believe my twins turn one tomorrow. This past year has flown by so fast, and the twins have grown so big. From just 5lbs each at birth (one a little under, one a little over) to 25lbs now, they are in their 12-18 month clothing already.
We don't really have anything special planned. I will bake them each a cake, I have made them a card each and we will take some photos. No party, no huge celebration. I kind of wish we did, but I just don't have the time. Two babies, and a toddler, take a lot of work and energy.
I made them each a card though, so that's something special. And, yes, it's the same card - one in pink and one in blue. I dress them the same - one in pink and one in blue, so why not the same card?
You can also see how easy it is if you see a layout you like, but don't have the exact same paper and accessories, to change it up to suit.
My stamp sets and designer paper are all retired, but there are some stamp sets I can't bear to part with yet. And the paper, well, I picked it up on the clearance rack. I made the sentiment on my computer and then punched it out.
