Collinisms and Get Well Soon

It seems that when I make a card for the MUSE challenge I'm always sneaking it in at the last minute.  I was itching to play along this week as Bev's card is truly fabulous and my Uniko stamps needed more ink. The detail on the butterflies is so gorgeous.  This card was very quick to make and is easy to mass produce too.

Last week I shared some Marcelisms with you. I thought it would be fun to chat about all the boys at different spots.  So...here's what my sweet little 10 year old, Collin is up too.

  • Every since he was very little he has loved to cook. It started with pretend play making tea for us with water.  He's deliver it to my mum proclaiming that is "scrumptious and delicions".  He's now making grilled cheese and scrambled eggs and bacon on a regular basis.
  • He also is extremely handy.  Out of our four, he is the one that is exactly like Pat.  Wanted to know how to build things and more than happy to do yard work.  All 63 lbs of him has taken over cutting my mum's yard as well as cutting most of our yard too.  When he took his shirt off the cut the grass, we were cracking up laughing.  We really aren't making him do it!

  • He loves to fish.  Last week he went to fishing camp. He didn't catch anything in over 30 hours of fishing, but man oh man did he have a great time.  He loved every minute.  "Mom, I'm so much better at casting, tie the knots the way dad does and putting the worms on myself."  He also used his grass cutting money towards a new rod. 
  • Monopoly is his favorite game right now. Friday night was a sleepover night for our nephew, Will, and Collin's first choice was Monopoly followed by a game of Headbandz. Love that game!


 I love how each of my boys have a unique personality and interests. Right now, pictures of Collin are only when he's not paying attention. He'll have nothing to do with a regular picture, but I do love that he'll still be quick with a kiss and an I love you. His sweet little freckles melt my heart.

Right now I'm wishing I was your neighbour! (actually, I have a pretty good grass-cutter of my own, but I wouldn't say he loves doing it! lol!) Love your take on Bev's Muse! Glad you joined us this week, Lynn!

Gorgeous card, Lynn! Love the simple design and soft, pretty colors!

Reading this post, I realized I never saw the one about Marcel, so I went back and read it, adding a comment. I love that you share these wonderful "...isms!" Collin sounds much like my David - always willing to help out and loving to cook. Love reading about your beautiful boys - you are so blessed! ♥

Your butterflies are so Pretty with their Fab colors! And those Collinisms are so special! Will he come mow MY grass?!!

Maureen said...

those are beautiful butterflies! I love the placement of each one! Oh, you had me smiling with the Collinisms (that's hard to say!). I read them to Tony and we had to laugh at the mowing (we just did ours last night) and fishing comments. Tony says he'll take him fishing anytime! We have so many gorgeous lakes here in BC :) ox

Your butterfly card is truly lovely. I like the airy feeling of those butterflies drifting. And, how nice to hear about your son. He really sounds like such a remarkable young man.

Bobby said...

I love the multicolored butterflies, Lynn. And also reading about Collin. It's nice to get to know our virtual families better. What is Headbandz, may I ask? It sound like something my family might like to play.

Congrats on your win with this beautiful card.

"I love how each of my boys have a unique personality and interests." So do I! I know people like that, it's always interesting when you see a set of siblings have very similar gene pools yet act very differently in person. Anyway, it's cute that Collin is very handy and loves to cook! Sounds good to have around.
