My nephew is going to be 31. He's my first nephew so I have a vivid memory of everything. I remember telling my boyfriend Andy, as he walked me to my dorm at Purdue, that my big brother and his wife (really, she did all of the work!!) had just had their first child, and his name was Bobby!! THIRTY ONE YEARS AGO!! 31 Can that possibly be? That means that I am FIFTY ONE!! 51
OK, I'm over it now, on to the card...
"Bobby-Bob-Robert-Rob," I call him that sometimes, because that is the evolution of his name, has four dachshunds, with his wife Kim. (Not triathlon Kim, we have a lot of repeated names in our family, so don't even try!!)
I have only one dog stamp with floppy ears, and it's not a dachshund. Here is my comical alteration of my stamp. Yes, acrylic stamps ARE stretchy, but that is not how I did this. I did, however, make the oval by stretching a circular stamp!!
This card is based on Sketch #180 by The Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge Blog. The sketch looks like this:
Rob has grown up to be a wonderful man: tall, good-looking and very intelligent, as well as hard working. Proud aunt, aren't I? You should see their dogs!! So cute!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROB!! Hope it's a great one and you and Kim have a great time celebrating!!
Leave the dogs at home!!
Love from Drew, Karen Lisa,Will and Tommy
Sneak Peek at tomorrow's card: Jay's Fire Dog is based on the same dog as Rob's Dachshund!!
I guess that I should call my husband "Andy, Andrew, Drew"!!
