Mini Me

Hi ya Friends!
This is a card that was never meant to be. The image was supposed to be headed for the round file (a.k.a trash can :), but there's a little story I have to share that made me change my mind. One night, I was in bed practicing my coloring when my oldest son walks in and asks, "Mom, are you coloring a picture of yourself when you were little?" To which I said, "Whaaat? This is a stamp, not me!" & then I thought- Hey, maybe this kinda does look a little like me when I was little. Well... you decide. Am I a Tilda or what???

Here's the card I eventually made with the Tilda image:


Here's mini-me (at about 4 years old).

BTW, I still look this cuuuute! (hee hee!) So what do ya think? Tilda... with chubby lips?
So after all of this I just couldn't round file her :(
I used this Magnolia Sketch for my card:


Thanks for peekin'! I'm wiped out so I'm calling it a day. Nighty night.
Gotta go!

  3. Very pretty card, definately not worthy of the trash can. Kids definately call 'em like they see 'em and I agree there is a resemblance. Of course the photo of mini Karli is much cuter than a stamped image ;)
