Michelle is 9

Wow, I cannot believe that my niece, Michelle, is turning nine. It's always easy to remember her age cause she was born in 2000! Even old people like me can manage....

She requested a green and blue card. I have no idea why, and I also have NO idea who chooses to mix green and blue, other than my nine year old niece. This was as close to green and blue as I could manage. I have another project I've sort of put together which is a LOT more green and blue, but I will ask my mother tomorrow if I pass with this card :-)

This is one of the Sugar Nellie stamps I ordered from Funky Kits. I just had to have Rory the lion, cause lions are from Africa you know. I coloured him with my lyras and blended with Sansador. He was also coloured before choosing the paper, but it was luckily not too hard to find something to match him, especially seeing he's going to a girl. I put some liquid crystal on the water drops just to make it look a bit more real and mounted the image on 3D dots.

I did not put a '9' on the card. Is that bad, should I have.... I couldn't decide and felt it would just have made the card too busy, guess I'll ask my mother that too tomorrow.

I went looking for the lizard today, but couldn't see him. I saw lots of others, climbing up my walls to get a bit of sun, but not the poor 'slow' one which I freed yesterday. I just hope he is not in pain, that is my worst fear. The poor thing didn't make a sound, do lizards make sounds. I guess not. Pity, how do we tell if they are in pain....!?

I've impressed myself today, two cards in one day.... I'm getting faster whoooohoooo!

Oh, we have mother's day next Sunday, I think it's the same as the Americans. So my card is still on time Mar, thanks for checking.

Till tomorrow - I hope.
