A little bit about this card: When I was making this card last night, I was distracted by my niece, whom I fondly refer to as The Adorable One. We were Skyping so I had one eye on this card and one eye on her. I wasn’t really looking at where I was shading and blending ink most of the time and it took me 3 tries until I got the card right ;-). She is 21 months old and she loves to count from 1 to 13 and was showing off to her auntie. She’s also able to recognize numbers and letters so she loves it when people wear shirts with writings on them. Last night, her uncle (my brother-in-law) was wearing a shirt with big letters on the back so she kept pointing to the letters and saying what they are. You obviously can tell I’m not too crazy about my niece :-D
Here’s one of my favorite pics of me and The Adorable One. It was taken in November last year, the day before my husband and I were scheduled to fly back to California after a month of visiting my family overseas. She turned a year old the week before. (And I planned the trip so that I’d be there on her birthday.)
