Sweetie Pie #5 - Never Underestimate the Power of TWO!

Hello Friends and welcome to my favourite Sweetie Pie card so far!

I love my husband.  Truly and deeply.  And oh, so many years ago our mutual love took root and was nurtured and cared for - and over these last 22 years it has grown into our Sweetie-Pie Family Tree!

I LOVE this sentiment!  The Power of Two took root and has grown into something so much better than either one of us alone!

The Sweet Sorbet designer series paper that you can earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration is still available for one more week and it provided the background tree for our Family to grow on.  We often refer to our eldest (the one with pigtails) and our youngest (our son) as our "book-ends" so it is appropriate that his image was generated by merely not inking the pigtails of her image.

As for darling daughter #2 with the short hair?  I wasn't thrilled that this particular photopolymer image has a bit if a frown - so I substituted the smile of daughter #3 (image with the headband) for the frown of the short-haired image and I was much happier.  And you can see the family resemblance too, can't you?   (wink).
The perfectly clear photopolymer makes substituting smiles an easy task.  No Stamp-a-ma-jig required!

As for my darling husband?  His image is that of the short-haired girl (once again substituting a smile for a frown) but like my son's image, I masked off the longer tresses on either side of the face so my hubby would look a trifle more manly in his grooming.

I suppose the Family Tree would be more authentic if mine and my hubby's hair were coloured with a fair amount of gray, but then again, I didn't mean for this to be an identical likeness!   :)  At least the hearts, compliments of the owl punch, lend an air or realism to the card.  Because truly, it is love that has grown us into what you see before you.

My husband should be home from work soon and I cannot wait to give him this card.

I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has *never* underestimated the power of two!

Hope you enjoy this card.  And I hope you are looking forward to seeing just a few more Sweetie Pie cards in the coming days.

In the meantime, enjoy your Monday and God Bless you all!    ~Cynthia    <><

  1. Okay, I'm absolutely going to be in withdrawal not seeing a new "Sweetie Pie" card every day. Although they are each unique in their own way and very special, I must say I love the "family" tree card the best. Well done! Diane

    1. Oh Diane - I am so happy you like this card as much as I do. You know my hubby....I am blessed beyond compare and I was pleased with the way this simple card shows just how much I am blessed.
      DH + me = 6

      This set is loads of fun to play with so never fear, there will be a few more installments to come.
      Have a fantastic evening and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
