Fun and Cute #1

I am much happier today because it's Friday and payday, it's a three-day weekend, plus it's Max's, my nephew's 2nd birthday. I am completely enamored with my nieces and nephew. I love being an aunt. After being a mom for almost eighteen years, I have realized how fast children grow. However, nothing drives the point harder than seeing my nieces and nephew and be reminded that my own kids were just this small not too long ago. Now, my son is graduating in high school and my daughter is almost eleven. How fast time flies.

I made a Fun and Cute style card appropriate for a two year old who's crazy about Elmo and Sesame Street. A Fun and Cute card has a happy / bright color combination. It can have humorous or whimsical embellishments and it's guaranteed to always make you smile or even laugh. I find myself using this style when I create birthday cards for kids or for some of my whacky friends.
