A quick story about this card made by a friend for my son, Ashley, on the occasion of his 7th birthday. My friend's son, Ciaran, and Ashley decided they would like to become cousins ("Mum tell the government that we are now cousins" said Ashley). What Ashley hadn't considered was that making Ciaran his cousin, also made Ciaran's 3 year old sister, Lillian, his cousin. It took a bit of persuasion but an "alright" was finally reached. My friend was then wondering if Ashley realised that he had made her an Aunty (for the first time too). So she gave him this birthday card which in amongst the chaos of a birthday party, sailed right over his head. But I got the message, and after some explanation, Ashley now has a new Aunty.
The reason for including this cute punch art card on my blog is to highlight the stamp set, Wonderful Favourites, page 119 of the main Stampin' Up! catalogue. It currently retails for $39.95 but this price was an printing error in the current catalogue (which SU! decided to honour for the sales period of April 2008 to March 2009). From the 1 April 2009, it will be more like $77.95. So, if this set takes your fancy, please purchase it before the end of March 2009.
And on the subject of disappearing items, now is the time to stock up on all the In-Colour items before they disappear. I'm specifically referring to:
Ink Pad ($9.95) & Re-inker ($4.95)

12 x 12 card stock, variety ($17.25)
