Although if it was fuzzy and cute and became my friend, maybe that would be okay! No one loves a fuzzy caterpillar as much as I do.
Anyway, where do I start?
Yesterday was a joint celebration of my sister's birthday, my Dad's birthday and Mother's Day. It also happens to be the 40th anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which was the theme of the party.
My mom got the special edition of the book, which is the most beautiful and complicated pop-up book I've ever seen. Here's one of the pop-ups.
Then she made an elaborate caterpillar birthday cake, made of teeny cakes, decorated like a 'pillar.
Adorable. Here is my sister getting ready to dig into his little noggin. I put some fun drawing effects on it because I am in a really boring section of Celebrity Apprentice and no one has updated Facebook or Twitter in like 15 minutes.
I noticed while we were having dinner that the little crystal ball on top of the decanter flipped everyone upside down. I needed a picture of that for sure. That's my upside down sister and mother, recounting the story about how my sister broke her elbow on a swingset in South Dakota and my dad drove at 400 miles an hour through downtown asking for directions and not listening to the answer and how my mom almost killed a nurse in the hospital. It's a great story.
Speaking of my mom - she finds the most amazing things. She found a jar of hibiscus flowers, that were preserved in this yummy syrup from Australia, that you are supposed to put in the bottom of your champagne glass. Don't be skrd about what ur about to see, even though I stifled a scream.
I promise it was yummy, and quite beautiful in this view.If ur skrd, look at this candle with GLITTER!!!Or, you can look at my card, which isn't scary at all.
It's with the stamp from the under $10 collection on page 208 of the catalog - Flowers in Silhouette. Can you ever get enough of silhouette stamps? I stamped it in So Saffron, then Pumpkin Pie, then Regal Rose. I stamped the greeting from Sense of Time in Black and tied a saffron ribbon around it - BAM. Easy card.
I hope you had a wonderful Sunday and will have a great start to your week.
