My card is for a long-time friend I met when I FIRST started stamping. She has been having a rough time with her children lately, and I think she could use a pick-me-up. As young mothers, I think we often have the misconception that raising babies is the hardest part of parenting. We feel like surely after we are done changing diapers and wiping noses, that somehow motherhood will be full of rainbows and ponies... and it is. But sometimes it's full of problems, and trouble... and DRAMA. LOL Here's to motherhood, all the stages of raising kids, and surviving it with as little gray hair as possible.
She has been there for me through the past MANY years and offered so much love and support to me when I needed it. She's a truly special person, and I am SO lucky to be able to call her "friend".
I plan to tuck this card, the stamp set I used to make this card (a new one of course), and a lot of love in an envelope in hopes of brightening her day.
I hope you'll join me in choosing someone and making THEIR day, someday soon.

AMEN, Jody! I worry about those teen years and all the choices my boys will face.
What a lucky friend you have. She will LOVE this card (and all the goodies you send with it). Your coloring is beautiful and I love the crisp, clean design!

Jody, what a sweet card and thoughtful gift!! Love your coloring!! I agree about parenting. I was so looking forward to having a few hours to myself when the kids were in school - but the non-stop shuttling/car pools/sports and worry about schoolwork friends (or lack thereof - lol) is a wee bit tiring! Not looking forward to the teen years!
