Eli's Birthday Card

Here’s one of the cards I made at my hubby’s request. Our friends had a birthday party for their sweet boy, Eli, on Saturday. He recently turned one and we were so happy to help them celebrate. It was a wonderful party amid a very busy weekend of yard work.

I am not one of those people who enjoy digging in the dirt. I'd much rather be in the house crafting! I discovered my flower bed had a large earthworm population that I nearly doubled unintentionally with my shovel. I vaguely remember from High School science that if an earthworm is cut, the two ends become their own little wormy dudes. If that's correct, we'll have a VERY large earthworm city in the front yard. Other then the worms I discovered a slug and some other wiry worm creature, and LOTS of gnats. Not my idea of a good time. I couldn't get into the shower quickly enough! I've got a busy week ahead with a new software training program at work and preparing the house for guests, so my posts may be a bit sporadic. I'm sure I'll find a reason to tidy the studio long enough to make something!
