I won't lie to you. I woke up this morning to the little ones in bed with us which seems pretty common these days. There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping child's face and as parents we know this based on two facts... 1) they are just darn cute and 2) they are silent as a church mouse!
But then I started to cry. I turned over and snuggled up to Kevin and the tears silently fell to the bed. I immediately felt my throat start to clench and tighten because I didn't want to cry and then my nose started to have that stuffed up congestion feeling. You know, it really isn't fair because if you think crying is ugly (which I personally thought I have always been an ugly crier)... you know if you are a pretty one or an ugly one, don't lie... well, trust me crying is even uglier when you have no eyelashes to support those tears and no nose hairs to help your nose from running! Ahhh... the indignities of it all! Fist pump for me... I managed to contain it and second fist pump becuase there was no one to witness it... ooops... except now, of course since I just now shared it all!
I started this post right after this incident of course and now the day is almost to it's end and I am again amazed at the amount of things that have occurred today, some things funny, some things sad, some things icky, and some things bad... but really what it is, are all the big and little things that happen in the every day that defines what LIFE is all about, in all it's beauty and ugliness.
Now, part of life is my creativity and I have to share it because the deadline is coming up (and oops, I just realized I missed it - but that's ok) I have this need for pretty right now and that is what this card represents to me and as it turns out it is of the same style as the last card I created, but I just love these stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Here is the sketch I followed that Clare Buswell created and click --->HERE<--- for the sketch challenge blog.
And here is my card.
Large Doily Stamp Set
PS... do you see my new flower frog? I couldn't help but follow this trend that I've seen by so many to use these... they do hold the cards quite well! Thank you MIL.
Until my next story... it's a cute one trust me.
