It happened...

As of the measurement on the wall yesterday, Jacob is now officially taller than me. I was thinking that he had probably passed me so I measured him last night and was shocked to see that he has grown almost 3/4" since Nov. 19th when he reached 5'6" (my height.) It won't be long before he is literally looking down on top of my head {and probably pointing out all the gray hairs}...and he is only 13!!!

I have been playing with a couple of challenges the last couple of days. This first card is based upon Amber's Unity sketch that she posts on Mondays. I just got in this kit, Spunky Princess and was dying to get it inky...it inks up so cute!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Spunky Princess
*Rhonna Farrer papers
*glue pen
*watercolor pencils

The other challenge that I worked on yesterday was Tanis' Holiday Extravaganza challenge from Splitcoast. These are called scraplings and they measure 1 1/4" x 4 1/4". Aren't they the cutest little things? Perfect for bookmarks or a quick little thinking of you card to slide into someone's shoe or lunchbox. I think that you will probably be seeing more of these from me in the future.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bitty Christmas Tags
*K&Company Christmas papers and stickers
*Martha Stewart border punches
*glue pen
*watercolor pencils
*Bazzill Kraft

I'd believe it. I was actually typing a response to your last post this morning when I lost the dsl connection. Congrats to him on the school honor as well.

Your card is lovely and the scraplings are too cute!

Wow -- Jacob is taller than you! Scares the heck out of me because Ryan is 9 and already quite close to being my height (I'm only 5'4" though). They grow entirely too fast!

If I don't make it back before Thursday -- Merry Christmas to you and your family! ((hugs))
