For someone special

With my hubby deployed, we have been sending him out care packages, and what's more exciting then to receive a package with a little love in it?

Of course this was his Valentine/February package, so instead of me making a card, I got my little guy (who is 15 months old today!) to work his magic....ok, I helped :)


Do you know how hard it is to get a one year old to hold his hand flat to make a print? It's crazy. These took a few attempts but I'm happy with the prints we got. I used the Heart to Heart punch...perfect! And I found a large heart on line that I printed onto Whisper White so that I could write inside it.

Inside the card I attached a couple pics of our little guy, so that Daddy would have them to place near his computer on the ship.

We've been busy around here....and even a bit sick. My teen has the tummy flu, I've had a chest cold....baby is teething, we achieved our first molar this past month. So much getting in the way of my ink and rubber. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for coming by!

That is too precious! I still have my kids' handprints from when they were small and they're in college, this was a great idea.

How sweet! I wish I had kept something with my little guys' handprints on them. They're big men now...and that would be so precious to have and remember.
