DH's neice came for a visit last month and just LOVED little Tiffy. I knew I wanted to get a nice frame and send her a picture. Of course she LOVES getting her own mail. She gave Tiffy a gift at our shower so I made sure and sent her her very own thank you card, instead of including her with her mom. Her mother said she just loved getting that. So, I figured she'd get pretty excited about this too.

I wanted a girly, sparkly frame, but they were all very expensive and none of them said "Cousins" so I decided to make one myself using a $4 frame from Big Lots, which is a discount store with all kinds of random items. They always have frames so I went and bought one, and also picked up some really fancy tissue paper to wrap it in. I used stickers I had on hand, decorated a blank card I had on hand and sealed it with top coat nail polish. I think it turned out adorable!!!!

Wouldn't you like this if you were 7 years old?





Thanks for looking! I really wanted to share this!! It was so much fun to make! I made sure and wrote the card in big print with shorter words so she can read it all by herself too!
