OMG...today my baby boys turn 21 years old and for as long as I can remember we called them fella's...as in "fella's, dinner is ready", or "fella's it's time to go"...it has always been "fellas" since the day they were born. I often wonder what our 'calling' would have been if we had girls, or a boy and a girl...but "fellas" has stuck till this day. I can't believe where the years have gone....does this mean I'm officially old? I'm not mentally ready to be old yet but some days my body tells me otherwise.
So in typical twin fashion, I have two cards to show you today and I'll start with Derek. This is a Mo Manning image that I purchased digitally. Mo is my definite go to gal when I need something for a guy and this fella's name is Paul typing, but in all honesty, it looks EXACTLY like Derek, right down to the bright blue laptop. We took a drive to Hamilton on Saturday and took Derek out to the Keg for dinner, which he was most appreciative of since he has been living on a student diet since September.
So here's to you Derek, happy 21st!
Next up is Alex, actually he was known as Baby A and made it to the finish line a whole 6 minutes ahead of Derek. In their early days, Alex was quite proud of the fact that he was 'first born'...but in my mind, they are totally equal. Alex enjoys the 'good life' and I think he takes after his mother a bit there! I asked him if he wanted to go to Hamilton for dinner on Saturday and he 'kinda' had plans! I can only imagine what those plans were so in my most motherly fashion I gently reminded him of the dangers of binge drinking and then made hime a card that I hope will be a lasting reminder...here goes... this is the front of the card which is an Art Impressions image which was intended to be a root beer float! Well, I strategically omitted the straws and turned it into a mug of beer! Pretty clever eh!
I added some liquid applique for the 'foam' and over heated it to give it the caramel tinge and some deep drips of glossy accents gavr some dimension to the mug.
Happy Birtthday guys!...We love you.
