He Made Me a Card!


If you celebrated Mother's Day I hope you enjoyed your day. I had such a wonderful day. My husband and girls had a lot of surprises for me. Look at the bottom of my post to see a card my husband MADE for me. We went to Brookfield Zoo with my parents and my sisters and their families. It was a beautiful day. I even got sunburned. LOL! My Dad hardly ever gets to come to family events because of his job. We were so happy to have him with us.

Today is The Diedrich Dare's week two with our May Sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps and our special guest designers. This week Jacquie's daughter, Kyah, designed our sketch. Didn't she do a nice job?!?!?! She drew it so nicely. I am having so much fun coloring my stamps from Sweet Pea. I've never colored a stamp with so much detail. I LOVE it. Try to stop by the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog to see the way the design team colors these stamps. UNBELIEVABLE talent!!!! I would love to be able to color like that.

Don't forget to visit the The Diedrich Dare blog to upload your creation. Sweet Pea is giving away a very nice prize!!!

Here is the card my husband made for me. He did such a nice job. I have always told my family I love home made cards. He usuallys buys a blank card and writes something inside it. Well, this year he completely surprised me with this beautiful card. Can you believe a guy did this????? He said this card took him all day. I want to frame it. LOL!!
Have a whimsical week!!
