A Season of Splendor

Hi all! I have to say that we bidding a sad good-bye to Kevin's mom today. We all got up at the crack of done and left for the airport where we will fondly wave good-bye as soon as we kick her out of the car. Don't worry, we'll slow down and make sure she lands on a curb.

Haha... did I get you? I remember the good ole days when there was a lot of excitiement associated with the airport. Now, its completely lame... yes, I do get the safety issues, just want to give a big sigh and say "ahhh remember when..."

Anyway, we are all terribly sad to see her go. She is the best mother-in-law ever. I'm all caught up on laundry, dishes, and general cleaning, plus I got lots of stamping time in. But... I couldn't let your leave wihtout some cards. I had her choose whatever she wanted from the stash and then got to working on her Christmas cards.

She and her hubby love cardinals and this stamp from Close to my Heart was perfect. I can't think of the name of the set, but I think its the sentiment that's on the card but don't quote me.

I wanted to make a card that was an easy mailer but you now how it is... its just too hard to resist just a little dimension. The birds are cut out and attached with some thin pop dots. Check this too... she even cut those birds out for me... her own cards.

Anyway, that's it for now. Just wanted to share!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. I bet I'll need a nap later on.
