Sweetie Pie #2 - She's One of a Kind

Okay My Friends

Here is a Sweetie Pie card for Darling Daughter #2.  

DD#2 has very short hair.  Beautifully unique short hair.  Up until last June, she had a full head of some of the healthiest, shiniest long hair I've ever seen, but in June she had it cut off and donated it to cancer.  Go ahead and ask me how proud I am!!   

I am proud not only because of the "motivation" to cut her hair and donate it, but also because she had the courage, in today's cookie-cutter world, to sport a short hair style - and KEEP it short.  Have any of the rest of you noticed that the "fashion" right now is for girls to have long, straight hair?  Long.  Straight.  
All of them.
Cookie cutter.

DD#2 though?  She doesn't feel the need to conform.  She has self confidence.  She has panache.  She has flair.  She is unique and has the absolute coolest haircut around.  

So after I made the first card, I figured it made more sense to show her uniqueness amongst the rest of the teen girls out there.  

Please don't get me wrong - I am not against long straight hair.  After all, my DD#1 and DD#3 have long, straight hair.  

But I *do* applaud young girls in today's world who have the courage to be individuals and not have to look like everybody else.

So card #2 reflects my daughter, standing out and being unique in the halls of the High School where all the rest of them are just trying to blend in.

I love that about her!!

As for these 2 cards, I'll bet you can see that they are very quick and easy.  Because the Sweetie Pie set is so cute, you don't need to do anything extraordinary to get a gorgeous card.

But keep watching.  Tonight I'll have quick and easy card #3 for DD#3.  
And then my friends, then I will start to show you the uber-cool variations that make this stamp set a must-have for your craft room!!

  1. She must be a strong character, to not want to be identical to everyone else. I would be proud of her too!

    1. HI Susan
      DD#2 not only has a strong character, but she is self-confident and sure of herself (can't say I was at her age) (or even now??). I admire her tremendously!
      Have a wonderful rest-of-the-weekend and God Bless, Cynthia <><
