More Mother's Day......

I sure hope all of you had a nice Mother's Day...I sure did!

My hubby took our little one to town Saturday afternoon to pick out a card for me...she is three...you can't do things too far in advance, she can't keep a secret. lol! They came home and she didn't say anything....great! I might get a surprise!! lol! a while later that evening, she had to "go potty." She said she wanted to look at a magazine, do I handed her one of my scrapbook magazines....they are great scavenger hunters to play a game with a little one....she picked it up...there was a layout on the cover and flowers behind it. She ran her hands over the flowers and said "I bought you these..." "I bought you these for Modder's Day..." I quickly responded..."please don't tell mommy what you bought me....I want to be surprised tomorrow..." (really, I did.....) I kept trying to change the subject - but she wouldn't hear of it....so I guess I was going to get flowers. Well, the card will be a surprise, right?? Fast forward to bed time....I still hold her to go to sleep....she leaned back and looked up into my eyes and said...."I bought you a snoopy card." I am like..."Honey....please don't tell mommy-tomorrow is Mother's Day-you can tell me all about it tomorrow...." Ok...so are you keeping up? I am getting a flower and a card with snoopy on it....Then about five minutes later she starts to sing: do do do doo do do doo doo do do ........"That is what you card sounds like mommy....." LOL!!!!!

So Sunday Morning....I did get just that. She picked me out a card that had snoopy on it and when you opened it it played the theme from Charlie Brown - it was the cutest thing!!! And then in she came with a beautiful Hydrangia bush. I asked my hubby if she picked it out all herself....he said yes. He was trying to talk her into a bouquet of flowers and she would not back down. She was so proud of herself...and she should have been, it was so sweet!

If you are still with me...You are wondering....Is there a project today or just rambling....?!??!?!

Well...there is a project, and I was pretty proud of it. The concept was totally my own. Remember the card that I posted again yesterday that I won on Shelli's blog? Well.....I had made a box to coordinate with it but I didn't submit the box to Shelli....I didn't have it done then.

Here is just the box:

See the pull ribbon? I wanted to make sure it was opened from the right end...so I set a jumbo eyelet and threaded some 1/4 inch chocolate chip ribbon through and tied a knot.


Pull...pull...pull


Here it is open:

See the necklace holder that fits down into the matchbox die???

Now there is never a reason to give jewelry in a tacky store bought box.....Thanks to Stampin' Up's Matchbox die.....I absolutely love this die!!! I will be using it for lots of things....you just wait and see!

What a great story Regina. I too have a three year old who can't keep a secret, so I really appreciated your little story bits from your daughter. The ribbon pull tag on the box is wonderful...
