Happy Thursday, Friends! Thanks for stopping by today!
I must admit...this card is not a piece of art. Not my best card. No great layout going on here. But I got this idea in my head last weekend, while away with my 2 sisters and friends to make a mother's day card for my mom using 3 different Tilda's to represent my 2 sisters and myself. Then we could all sign it.
To give you a frame of reference I am including a picture of me and my sisters from this weekend. No jokes please! Remember we were working hard...it was all about comfort...no make-up...no posh coifs! LOL! I am in the center...to your left is Katie. To your right is Tricia. I am the oldest. Next is Katie and Tricia is the youngest. I am 5 and 6 years older than my sisters. When we were young we were referred to as "Kerry and the girls". There is exactly one year difference in age between Kate and Tricia. They looked very much alike when they were little. They both even fell and damaged their front two baby teeth and had to each have them removed. So for many years neither of them had front teeth. But aside from the physical similarities, Kate and Trish were very different. Katie was/is the brainiac and marched to a different beat. Katie was always logical. Tricia was more like me...the social butterfly. Except I was very shy until I was about 14....Tricia always had a spark about her. Tricia was always doing things like cutting her own hair. (when she was 3!)
Katie always hated pink. Pink was Tricia's favorite color. Katie wasn't a Tom-Boy...not at all....but had her own unique little style. uuuum...remember Punky Brewster? I think that was Katie's Fashion Idol! LOL! I was kind of the black sheep of the family. My parents on one end and these 2 toothless cuties on the other. My parents and a my sisters were/are great dancers. They all did Irish Step dancing. I, on the other hand, have as much rhythm as a wet mop. Even at a concert...I can't clap in time to the music. It's pathetic. Also, they were still cute and compliant when I was going through my I am 13 (or 14 or 15) and I know everything and you know nothing stage. They were cute and I was an early teenager. You know...a know it all with a serious attitude. Katie always got good grades....Kerry didn't live up to her potential. Tricia was always so helpful at home...Kerry spent too much time on the phone.
Ooooops! Sorry about the tangent! :P
So I told my sisters I was going to make this card. I saw the one I refer to as Naughty Tilda, and knew that had to be Tricia....Idon't know....maybe it's the funny little pigtails. Katie wanted to pick out her own....In typical Katie fashion, she chose Farmer Tilda as her favorite. No dress. A bandana on her head. I chose Cherry Tilda for me because she is one of my favorites and for the practical reason that she is facing towards the right....so it would look like she was facing her sisters. Coincidently, she is also much larger than the other two! Therefore, looking older.
I printed out the sentiment on the inside from my computer. We are always saying that we are each "mom's favorite". And this is something that might come out of any of our mouths, jokingly, of course! ;)
I know that I didn't get arounf to posting my pinwheel and cloud directions yesterday. I apologize. I am just so busy the past 2 weeks. I look forward to next week when I feel like I can take a deep breath! I will post the directions on Friday. Sorry.
Have a Splendiferous Thursday!!
