My week with two boys under one roof is...interesting.
One of them has already tried to play the waterworks card, didn't work.
I am a ruthless leader.
And one of them has difficulty telling the truth which in my book is the #1 worst thing you can do.
Unfortunately that one doesn't fear my wrath as much as the one who has put in 12 years with me, so it is hard to scare any sort of sense into him.

I made this card over the weekend.
Thought I would get in a little crafty time yesterday but I was too busy listening to excuses and explaining what "possession of stolen goods" meant in jail terms.
This is another belated birthday card that needs to go out.
I am a total slacker friend and family member.
I used this awesome stamp I got from Elly who sells these cute stamps at her etsy shoppe and did I mention they are totally cheap and are awesome.
This little robo guy is just $4!!
And she sells the little gnomie guy too that I love so much.
The paper on this card is the new Cogsmo line from Cosmo Cricket.
I colored with my Copics and on the inside it reads.."Malfunction...Happy Belated Birthday!"

Off to look up jail times for petty theft...

Cute card, I luv it! Does this robot clean house? I could sure use him to work for me right now! Hahaha!!!

I wouldn't want to be one of those boys and have YOU to deal with, LOL. You must be a tough cookie. I think maybe like a velvet steamroller. Great Robot Simone.

Too funny! I would not have made a good mother to young boys, that is for sure.

Love the card, very cute robot guy.

you are rockin' the cards and those markers, simone! and what an awesome idea for a belated b-day card.

sorry about the boy melt-down. boys are boys. although, mine acts like a 12 year old girl most of the time...hopefully, he'll outgrow that in the next 6 years.
