A Big Huge Thanks

Today is DS1’s first double digit birthday.  I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it!  Something about the double digit thing seems to be bothering me.  “Only eight more years…” is what my subconscious is whispering.  Eight short years, I’m afraid.

Today, I’m guest designing again over at i{heart}papers, so for my card today, I reached for this cute hippo to create some simple thank you cards for DS1:

Stamps:  Avery Elle (Hipster-Potamus)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Hero Arts (neon ink)
Dies:  Avery Elle (Chevron Bits)

DS1 has been making a birthday list and while some of the listed items he’ll only be seeing in his dreams, we usually pick one or two gifts for him that we think he’ll use for a while.  What would be on a 10-year-old boy’s wish list?  (It’s always good to know, isn’t it?!)

  • Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch
  • a Fitbit
  • a camera to replace his broken one
  • an Ipad
  • a Butterfinger candy bar (maybe more than one…)

I seriously considered the camera since used ones can be found fairly inexpensively on Ebay.  However, he forgot that he’s talked about a scooter a few times over the last year and his mother has a way of keeping track of things people casually mention in conversation.

Have a marvelous Monday!
