Happy Valentine's Day Everyone:
Well I'm sitting working away chatting with my friend by email last night around 5:00 PM when it suddenly dawned on me that today was Valentine's Day. Wholly you have never seen a Mom run so fast to the store so fast. All the way there I'm thinking how am I going to explain to my 9 year old that I forgot to get treats for her little party today. I get there & I'm standing in front of all the boxes of Valentine's cards trying to find just the right one for her friends. I finally make the decision thinking these should be just perfect. Okay one thing down...now let's find the treats. Have you ever tried to find "No Nut" products for Valentine's? Well let me tell you the selection is slim to none. So I opted for Rice Crispy squares & real fruit snack treats. I'm quite pleased with all my selections so I head for the cashier & I'm quite excited to get home to show Emilee what I bought. Are you wondering how this played out? Well the treats were a hit infact since she doesn't get much in the way of junk food anymore the Crispy squares were a hit but the Valentine cards...not so much. See I bought Barbie cards...now who knew that Barbie was not cool to give when you are 9. What's a mother to do I ask? The choices were quite limited. So needless to say we won't be handing out Valentine's cards. Although she did very politely ask me to started making 35 Valentine's cards for everyone. See her feeling was that Mom is a card maker and therefore she should have homemade cards for her friends. My response...maybe next year!!
Okay so that was my story for today...now onto my card. I used the lovely Abigail Apple from Kraftin' Kimmie. I think I love brown with just about every other colour. It really is the new black as it works with so many other colours.
