It's almost the end of the month and I do an end of the month challenge with my blog group. The theme is doing something to honor your father and mother. My parents have been married 63 years and have made their own Christmas cards every single one of those years. So, I have seen cardmaking done every year of my life. Mom usually designs it and does the art. Dad decides on the sentiment or creates poetry for the inside of them. They start in October most of the time and some years go very smoothly and some years they have to work out their artistic differences in opinion. So, I decided a Christmas card would be the perfect kind of card in which to honor them. I found this little house mouse stamp on for half price today and it reminded of me of their love for one another and their devotion to creating their cards every year for their Christmas list of at least 100 that they mail out. Thanks Mom and Dad for introducing me to this fascination with paper crafting and inspiring me to enjoy the creative side of life.
Thanks for those who visit my desk/mess this week. I look forward to visiting the others I will find over at
Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground.
