Happy Snail Mail

Happy Friday morning friends! Anyone else doing a little Smiley from millan.net because it is Friday? It has been a good week off of school for Kyler but I'm definitely ready for Friday.  Thank you for stopping in today to check out the new sketch from Sketches by Carly and what I made with it.  I hope you head on over to the Sketches by Carly blog to participate!  This sketches sponsor is Carly's Digi Shop!  So, not only does Carly make up super cute sketches but she designs digi's too including the cute Snail I used on my card.
o, you know I got the snail from Carly's shop, the paper is from MME and is called Happier.  That is some uber cute paper for spring!  I think this will be fun to send to a long distance relative.  Inside it says "sending you happy snail mail."  Who doesn't like mail that isn't a bill?
It was a late night for me last night.  I was messaging on Facebook with a friend when she told me that she was in the ER with her 2 year old son who had experienced a seizure.  I asked if her husband was with her, she said no (he works about 2 hours away), so I called Todd and had him run over there and then I went to sit with her until her husband got there.  What a scary experience for them.  Hold and hug your children a little tighter tonight, k?

Thought of the day:  Being a mom is the best decision I made in my life.  Few other decisions have brought so much joy and love into my heart.

Hi Lorie :) Your card is adorable. That Carly is one talented young lady! Love your choice of DP's, and of course, that little snail is colored beautifully! Great card, my friend - thanks for sharing :) You are a good friend, by the way - hugs to you for that. Your thought for the day is perfect! My DH will be home tomorrow night...yippee! I keep telling the dogs "8 more sleeps, 7 more sleeps". lol Have a good day!

What a scary experience for their 2 yr. old to have and for the worried parents as well. Your presence made all the difference in the world to that momma. Hugs, Kris
