WMSC#81 January 21, 2012 - Sweetie Pie

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  We all worked hard Saturday removing the snow so I decided to let everyone sleep in.  I took advantage of a quiet morning and played with the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge for the week.  If it was summer time you'd find me and the dog outside at 6 a.m. relaxing and listening to the birds.  I miss sitting outside with a glass of iced tea reading a book. 

PrintI made this Valentine for my mom.   As strange as it sounds my son has been calling her "sweetie pie" for as long as I can remember.  When I saw this phrase in the Sweethearts set I knew it would wind up on a card for her.  My mom is always doing special little things to let us know she cares - buying us little presents, and encouraging our hobbies.  She likes to crochet and often sends over a handful of hand made flowers for me to add to cards I make.  In fact she even sent over a package of these sweet flowers you see on my card.  This week's sketch is by Anya Schrier and here's the link if you'd like to play along:    http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/challenge-81january-21-2012.html


Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  Have a great day!
