Hello!! Yes, I am alive. I'm sure you've all been wondering ;). I've taken a bit of time off and enjoyed it with my family, and I feel refreshed. Yes, I know I just posted on Thursday, but I think in blog days, it was an eternity! lol.
I'm here today to share with you a simple little number featuring the latest and greatest from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I've been struggling for a while now for appropriate images for cards for my nephews who are pre-teen/teenagers, and Claire has TOTALLY hit the nail on the head with these sets!! Free Spirit Boy, and Free Spirit Sentiments...LOVE them!!
My nephew Bobby had his 14th birthday last week, I still can't believe he's 14! For goodness sake, I was still a teenager when he was born, and I can't be that old, can I?? Dang. Anyway -- he's a real great kid, he's got a good heart, and a great sense of humor. And, he's my first nephew (also my Godson) so he always has a special place in my heart (he'll probably GAG if he reads this!)
He's pretty easy to shop for these days, iTunes gift cards or cash that he can use to put minutes on his cell phone are always a good bet - and I know they're being put to good use...besides, how else will I know all the coolest apps for my iPhone, than to get input from a teenager?? ;)
Here's my card, simple, straightforward, and uses his favorite color, orange (which is my favorite too, in case you'd like to send me some happy mail ;) ).
He said he liked it, though I'm sure he liked the check made out to cash much better, but hey, what more can I ask for?? I'll be lucky if he even still wants to associate with me by his next birthday, so I'll take what I can get ;).
Thanks for stopping by today -- hope it's a great one!
