So why does being a Mom have to be so difficult sometimes? I need to remind myself that if it were easy than it probably wouldn't be a rewarding during those good times...right?! I am trying to get my 4 year old son to understand that his sister is a real person and not a doll that he can move around to suite his desires or a toy that he can randomly go up and smack on the head or in the belly! My poor little girl puts up with a lot. He is not doing it in a mean manner, but he is definitely not giving her the space she deserves! And man, I get so very,very frustrated when I have to repeat the same thing over and over again to him! Ahhhh! Ok, I need to look at the last line on this card and do as it says...let it go!

So on to the card at hand...this was one of the other cards I did for the Verve 2nd Anniversary Sketch Challenges (which I was not one of the randomly chosen winners...insert sad face here, but I do now have 5 cards ready for upcoming birthdays and such...insert happy face!). This was my second card in my night of not entirely sure I like all of it, but I like portions of it! I used the circle Nestabilities to cut out the sentiment from Verve Stamps Beautiful You set and then sponged it with Pretty in Pink ink while it was still in the it that white edge. I used the flower from the Beautiful You set to make the patterned paper on the left and used some of the To the Nines DSP on the right side. The pretty in pink square was embossed with the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.

I have one more of my Verve Sketch Challenge cards to post and now some losing (although I still like them) Spellbinders cards I created for their Pendant Project I will talk to you later! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

Beautiful card! Hang in there! She will be old enough soon to fight back. My son was the same way and he slowly got it.
