Belated Birthday Vase

Belated Birthday

With my son graduating from high school in June I am flooded with his childhood memories and this card brings back one in particular.

How can vases with flowers remind me of my son’s childhood?  Here’s the story…

When he was 7 years old he went with me to the grocery store with me and while we were shopping he asked me if he could go get something.  He said it was right around the corner and begged to be right back.

He was gone for one minute and as he ran up to me I noticed he was hiding something behind his back.  With a big cheesy grin on his face he said the following as he thrust forward a bouquet of flowers…

“Mom, if I had a job this is what I would buy you.”  I had instant tears in my eyes because of his thoughtful nature.  So, I bought them for him and he gave them to me when we got home.

With this sweet story in mind please view the video at the bottom of this post.

Lesson Learned:  Stamp images like this vase stamp on your favorite designer series paper, snip each vase just slightly inside the lines and glue the cut out vase to the main image.  It will surely add a whole new visual to the image itself.

A MUST SEE!

I’ve been a mom for 19 years and I know the requirements firsthand.  In turn, my mom definitely has the world’s toughest job too!  I have already started making her Mother’s Day gift… made of paper of course! =)

Please leave a comment below… tell me what you think of the video?

The whole purpose of this blog is to share my simple handmade cards with as many people as possible and I can’t do it without your help, so go on and share.

If you could pass post this post along to at least one friend
who you know has the world’s toughest job, I will be grateful!
