MY Wild Thing!!

You ever do a card with a specific purpose intended?? Like WHO you were going to give it to... or in what "perspective". I started out doing this card thinking I would some day give it to my husband. The inside states... "I think I love you!" Of course... how appropriate, right? Well, as it turns out, this card won't be for my husband. *evil grin* Why you ask? Who else would get a card such as this? Read on! My card was done using Melanie Muenchinger's, "Cuddles and Hugs", set. Of course, the "Wild thing" and inside wording are also included in this wonderful set. I didn't think I'd do to well at coloring "fur" but... I decided not to fret about that and just do it. In deciding to "go for it"... I did forget to color in their noses... hee hee. I think they are albino now! LOL The ribbon I used was initially purchased for a "dog" wall scrapbook I did but I figured paw prints are paw prints, right? My brads are from Gina K Designs, but I can't say if they available anymore. Guess you'll just have to hop on over to the site and see for yourself, ehh? *smile* For being a pretty easy card to do... it started out being sooooooo difficult! I wanted to add a "metal" background and my metal was NOT cooperating! First, it was all bent... so I embossed it. Then, it was crooked... so I cut it. And... after I finished cutting... I realized... not ANY side was straight... AFTER I had glue on it and was trying to put it on the cover. Grrrrr. Needless to say... that just went into File 13!!! So here's whatcha got, folks. Now... the reason I changed the idea of giving it to my husband??? While... at work yesterday, my husband stopped by... as he always does on Thursdays when he gets back to town... and was looking thru the cards on my desk. This was one of them. He saw and said... "Hmmmm..."... then started rummaging through his wallet. After a bit I asked him what he was looking for and he said.. "THAT picture!" He had come around my desk and was then facing my computer and saw my StampTV picture I had on the screen. It's me, obviously, and my daughter, Emily. He said.. "Now, doesn't that look just LIKE this card?" I smiled and said, "Yes.. you're right. And... you know.. she IS my WILD thing!" Ha Ha I think I will wait a few more years, but... I will hold this card back and give it to her when she's old enough NOT to be upset that I think she's such a "wild" one in my mind. And her dad's mind, for that matter. LOL Gave me a whole new perspective on this stamp. Thanks, honey! Have a good day and hug YOUR "wild one" today! *smile* Don't forget to enter a comment under the Summer Birthday & Blog Candy post a few items down. I know you want to win a FREE Gina K Designs stamp of your choice!! Signature
