Mary always gives the DT an extra challenge to keep us on our toes. This time she asked us to provide a personal photo of our own and explain how it inspired our card.
Every time I see this stamp of the three dresses I have to stop and think of my sisters. I'm one of three girls (can you guess which one is me?) Yep! I'm the middle girl. Wow! I've had bangs a very long time now haven't I? LOL!!! I asked my mom to let me copy this photo over the weekend. Usually my mom would color code things for the three of us - like tooth brushes, hair accessories and just about everything else so there were never any arguments about who something belonged to. I was surprised to see us wearing different colors in this photo - really not how I remember things. It is possible that the dresses did belong to my older sister first (a better explanation for the pink on two of us). So this card of the three dresses is all about the three sisters to me.
Want to know more about the photo? It was taken at my Grandparents house circa 1968. Well the big cabinet behind us? Yep! That was a TV - and it was a COLOR TV (how unusual haha!!) The little doors would roll back into the cabinet to reveal the TV. And those ballerina paintings in the background? My Grandmother used to love to paint by numbers - and she painted those. My dad still loves to paint by numbers and I have a few of his masterpieces in my home as well.
Do I have you curious about the rest of the team now? Here's your chance to find out just a little bit more about us.
We have a special guest this month too - Bridget Findlay
