Reading to Sissy

Here is another Phindy's card for you.  I bought a bunch of images and keep printing them off to color.  This may be my favorite image yet, it is called Reading to Sissy, and the reason I love it so much is that they look exactly like Liam and Lilah.  Last night while I was working on this, my dh looked over at it and said, wow, they look just like our kids!  Too funny!

So I decided to make a thank you card to send to my grandmother for the generous Christmas gift she sent.  I think she'll love it!  I made it for the Phindy's Place challenge #36 (Give Thanks with scraps).  The scraps are from my box of Christmas paper scrap pieces.  The sketch I used was the MoJo Monday sketch #172.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.  Hope you are having a great week!

Card recipe:
Stamps:  Digi Reading to Sissy from Phindy's Place, sentiment from PTI
Ink:  Printer, Real Red
Paper:  PTI ssw, Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Kraft, DCWV pattern and stripe
Embellishments:  copics, nesties, EK success border punch, Cuttlebug Candy Cane embossing folder, sewing machine, Kaiser rhinestiones, dimensionals

awwww is the word of the day! This image definitely tugs at my heart strings <3 & it's a great take on the sketch too. One of my favorite quotes is "Readers are born on the laps of their parents" but you can add big brothers to that too! Big hugs~
