Justin Big Brother Gift & Card

I had lots of fun making name frames for gifts over the past few weeks. I made a set for two special children on my husband's side of the family. I met their parents (dad is first cousins to hubby) at our wedding four years ago and can't wait for Christmas when we will travel to see them again. Since our last encounter, they've welcomed Justin and Emily to their family. Here's the gift I made for Emily. This post shows what big brother Justin will receive. Some of the challenges that inpired me have closed, but they were perfect for what I needed. Just goes to show you how the inspiration still continues even after the deadlines. Hmm, or does it just show that I'm running a bit behind? :o) (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

The Gift:
Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #27
Once again, I flipped the awesome sketch from the midnight madness team for my project.
