Don't you love the way kids ask you questions? This morning, we were talking about what year the boys were born. Riley (6yrs) said :
"Muuum, Mason was born after me, 'cos his birthday is in May, but he's older than me".
Me : "Yes Riley. Mason was born in May, and you were born in February, but you were born in different years"
Mason (8yrs) : "Yeah Riley - I was born in 2000, and you were born in 2002. And Blake was born in 19.... Mum, what year was Blake born again?"
Riley : "The 19th Century! Aahhhhhh hhaaaaa haaa"
Me : "Blake was born in 1998"
Mason : "1998. WOW. Mum, did you even have electricity in 1998?"
Riley : "Or playstations? Or SUV's?
Me : "What's an SUV??" (and how does my six year old know more than me already??)
What a laugh - makes you feel really really old when your kids think 1998 was when the dinosaurs roamed the earth!
Well, back to the cards now - thought I'd better post the full card that I gave you a sneak peek at last week.
Here it is closed...
And half open...
See how the butterfly is sliding across?
This card is fantastic - such a cool idea. It's called a Peek-A-Boo card, and is NOT difficult - once you get your head around the instructions. Probably a card that is best made in a class (unless you are one of those really clever people who can understand instructions! - NOT me!) Anyway, HERE is where I found the most fantastic tutorial, over on Michelle Ide's blog. Thanks for the fantastic easy instructions. I just changed the square punches to circles, but other than that - everything is pretty much the same. Have a go!
