Yes, it is true. I have been replaced by a middle-aged bald man. No, I haven't started cross dressing. However, maybe I need to do so. Nah...that's just not my thing. My niece has had a crush on her neighbor for years. She's six, so when I say for years it has been most her life. Maybe the entirity of her life. I should have seen the signs of him taking over when at the age of two she would see him, get riled up and scream with delight...hiiiiiii Douuggggie. The flirt. It was cute. I wasn't threatened. That is...until now. On Friday she called me at work...her usual call to me asking for a special day. Sure Em. I'll pick you up after work. Then came the stipulation...I need to be home by 7:00. Huh? You don't want to be with me for hours and whine when you have to go home. Nope...Dougie is having a bonfire. Dang...I've been replaced by a middle-aged bald man. I'm not going down easy. Game on, Dougie! Game on.
Enough pouting and whining. Let's talk craft.
The following are the ATCs I made for the Studio Calico challenge - In Memory of Alisa. I had a hard time doing this. I was overthinking and wanting it perfect. I always get like that when I make something for someone else. It's far from perfect, but I think it turned out pretty good. The cards are based on a posting Alisa made on Studio Calico on July 17, 2008 titled Happiness is. Pretty cool things to be happy about. She will be missed by the entire SC community.
Just a note...I know that flower on the water lily portion is not a water lily. There is a method behind my madness. The flower was in a Studio Calico kit and was a tribute to Aleida after her death. I have been holding on to it to use it on something special. This seemed like the right moment. The music sheet even fits Alisa's quote. Hmmm...just realized that. :o)
Well, back to work. Gotta earn my keep. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!
