My daughter was/is in love with the Disney movie Finding Nemo. I promise you she has watched it in its entirety no less then 500 times. Honestly, she just turned 13 and still hardly a day goes by when Nemo is not referenced or quoted in some capacity. When I saw the new fish stamps by Simon Says Stamp I knew I had to get these for this reason.
When my order arrived, I sat down to make her a card but I seemed to have some kind of creative block. The unfinished circles you see on the card sat on my desk for a week while I sat staring at them each and every night….thinking…wondering…waiting for some type of inspiration. Finally, I figured I would just wing it. If I did something which ruined the circles I could just make them again.
Once the card was done, I sat it in front of me so I could fully check out this fun but true labor of love. And guess who happens to peek her head around the corner….my daughter! ‘Oooo..what’s that?’ she said before I could even flip the card face down. She picked it up and ran her hand across the top. ‘Who is this for?” she asked. As if she were really wondering…..
At least I didn’t have to make an envelope…
