ittybitty A DAY #2

DAY 2:
I continue to try and get my cards made that am so far behind in sending to people by participating in the itty bitty A DAY Challenge on the Facebook page of Unity Stamp {show & tell}.  It is unfortunate the ones I really need are Sympathy Cards.  It is a cruel fact of my age that many of my friends, relatives and classmates parents are passing away.  I am going to try to quit the Sympathy card run I have been on and stick with the happiness of the promise of Spring.  I say the promise of Spring as I live in Minnesota and 4-8 inches of snow is predicted tonight.  Like my daughter said, "If I met Mother Nature, first I would give her a good stare down, than start yelling at her". I replied "No kidding, but why do you always blame the Mom in the event of discomfort or irritation". Bam, that went over her head...maybe I need to pick up running to work off this pent up frustration.  That is right I can' is SNOWING AGAIN!
     Anyway here is my card.  I love this stamp.  It is the  My Sunshine Unity itty bitty stamp.  It is such a happy stamp.  I would always sing that song to my son when he was young.  I still do sometimes when I am keeping myself from strangling him.  Oh do not worry I will not, he is a teenager and he just says "calm down Mom, everything is's fine" and he gives me a big bear hug.  Than the magic of Moms and sons kicks in and his life is spared another day and I end up making him some sort of food.  Like I said..."Moms and sons".
