You Make Me Smile

I think I should give this card to Jonathon (my nine year old).  He has been making me smile a lot the last few days.  He has fallen in love with reading.  I'm not sure what happened, but he finally wants to read...and read all the time.

Tonight's conversation..."Mom, you know what my three favorite things are?"  "Reading, school and family you didn't think I'd say those first two....Mom, have you ever read a book and just gotten lost and you can't put it down?" 

Another Jonathon conversation..."Jonathon, you haven't made your list for Santa.  Would you like to make your list?"  "Naah...I don't want to make a just get what you get.  I'll like my presents."  I'm thinking this is the last year he'll probably believe...that makes me not smile.  I love when they believe!

Hope you enjoy this card.  Thanks so much to Lucy for the challenge.  Her challenge was to have wings and string....can you see the little tiny butterfly with the pearl? :) Thanks to Lisa also for the idea for this card.

Ingredients: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Signature Sentiments, Wedding Day; SU Kraft, Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss and Ruby Red Stamps and Paper, PTI Twine, Hero Arts Pearls
