I Missed You MORE!

This is the card that I gave Jessica when she got home. Here's the story behind the card . . . Jessica and I have gotten in the habit of trying to "top" each other with how much we love each other. So, I will tuck her in at night, tell her I love her, and she'll reply "I love you more". I've repeatedly told her that she couldn't possibly love me more, because I gave birth to her, I'm older, I'm larger, and she is a part of me, so clearly, I love her more. She then tells me that she is younger, she hasn't met and loved as many people as I have, so she has more love to give, and there is a huge part of that love just for me. Hhhmmm, that's logical! But, of course, I still love her more!


So, now the front of this card might make sense! I clearly missed her MORE! When I gave her the card, she said, "no, you didn't", but on the inside I had already written, "Yes, I did!" Ha ha -- score one for MOM! Just a simple card with the sentiment done on the computer, a striped patterned paper scrap (My Mind's Eye) from my desk, and ribbon. The flowers, the chipboard center flower piece, and the flower-shaped rhinestones are from a QVC kit. The really large flower and a vellum flower are folded in half so they would fit on the card front. Just a fun colorful card for Jessica's return!

I have tons of errands to run, a birthday party to go to, another birthday to celebrate tomorrow (my Dad's!!), and cards to make right now! Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

That's a great card Carol. It did make me laugh. My kids and I do a similar thing except they will say "I love you as big as this house" and I'll say "I love you as big as all the houses on this street." and so it keeps getting bigger until we get to as big as to the end of the universe and back! They just don't get that however much they love us (and we know it's a lot) we just love them more! (We'll keep that as our little secret eh?!) :-)

Hi Carol - yep - it's the 52 challenges one. Her stuff is so gorgeous. I spent a fortune the other night on craft stuff, including the book...oh dear me....(I wanted a chunky alphabet to cut chipboard with, so bought the Sizzix serif essential set, but then needed to buy a BigShot to use it with! - plus another couple of dies!) I don't really mind though - I don't know about your girls, but my kids really love looking through the srapbooking I've done so far. Have agreat Sunday,
Helen x
