Midway challenge 58..My how time flies

Good morning on this hump day,
Another beautiful day, had some rain yesterday evening, but a lot of wind also....
Today is a reminder of the halfway mark for challenge 58 at Digistamps4Joy....Oh my... how time flies.
When making my card I thought of my young grandson starting BIG school today. It seems like just yesterday he was that tiny baby...spending his first weeks in an incubator, and now ready to tackle the big wide world of school.....yes! how time flies.

I used 'backback Bro' for my main image, coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out with X-cut nesting dies, and on the background I used 'naptime'. I put the card through the cuttlebug with my new  Couture Creations embossing folder..'workshop', as it had clock parts on it. Computer generated sentiment, and brads to finish off.

Charlene said...

Ursula this card is just so cute. Love the way you have the baby image on the background paper to show the growing of the boy. How did he like his card?

Patricia said...

Perfectly portrayed! They never told us that parents have growing pains too. Thanks for joining us at Artistic Inspirations this week.

I love all of the attention to detail you added to this card. It makes the card SO special. I'm sure your grandson loved it. We grandparents have growing pains along with the parents, don't we? I keep telling my children to please remember that their children will grow up TOO fast b/c my children did. They are doing such a better job than I ever could have.

Ursula, this is adorable! Love the embossed and baby background. really interesting! Thank you sweetie for joining us at 7 Kids College Fund! Hugz

Such a cute boy image... awesome colouring and what a touching sentiment. Yes, they grow up so very fast. My older one has turned 13 and I just don't seem to know her. When she wanted me, I wanted to do my own thing now that she has grown and I want her, she wants to do her own thing. That is life - a complete circle. Thank God, I have a second daughter who is almost 5 and I will try and best to be more aware to the fact that they grow so quickly...
Hope you and yours are well.

G'day Ursula, your card for you little grandson is so cute. I also wonder where the time flies to. My second grandchild started big school this week. I feel like we can't blink these days, for fear of them all growing up so quickly.
Thank you for joining in the fun at Lady Anne's Challenges (Nana Vic) We look forward to seeing your next creative project.
