I recently received a text from my 20 year old nephew, Ben. It read: "Need card - 1 month - don't ask me anything - not telling you - can pick up tomorrow."
Can you imagine my first thoughts? 1 month what? baby? Don't ask - are you kidding me - I am ringing your mother/my sister! Not telling me what - yes you are! Pick up tomorrow - it is 10 pm now - do you sleep at all - you have got to be joking!
So after a couple more cryptic text messages and a phone call to Nana (cause she knows everything) I discover that Ben has been going out with Emma for one whole month and he would like to give her a card.
AWWWWW! HOW SWEET IS THAT!
So... I am on the job. Would she like blue, does she like cute dog images, would she prefer a flower stamp, what about red, is she a yellow girl, should it be really mushy or not too mushy, is there a stamp in the whole world that says Happy one month anniversary. Phew!
Anyway, I managed to gain an extra day and I made 2 cards - both different - and I would gladly show you but apparently he liked them both and I am not sure which one he gave her.
My point - and stick around cause I do have one - is that this week at Sweet Stampin we are having an 'Anything but Square' challenge and our sponsor is Di's Digi Downloads
I saw this image over at Di's and immediately thought ... OMG! it will be 2 months soon!!!
So Ben, if you are browsing my blog (yeah right!) - do not show this card to Emma cause it may be her 'two month anniversary' card from you.
You don't have to have a nephew with a girlfriend to enter this challenge - just pop on over to Sweet Stampin, see what the rest of the Design Team have come up with and join in our fun. Di's Digi Downloads are giving away a $10 voucher to a lucky winner and our regular monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen also has a voucher to give away.
