Happy Adoption Day!



Happy Adoption Day! Today is a sweet reminder of how fortunate I am. My mom chose adoption. My parents and I are eternally grateful. Today is my Biological Mom's Birthday. She passed away 10 years ago. I thought this card was perfect to celebrate, her birthday. Here selfless choice enriched so many peoples lives. I could never thank her enough for the gift she gave me. I plan on giving this card to my adoptive mom as a Thank you for all she does for me. My sweet son and his school are doing the March for Lide today in Washington. He is really excited, this will be his first time.  Could this card be anymore perfect? It is not up to me to place any judgment in ayone. I hope no one takes my post that way. I can only speak for myself and what I know was given up for me.

Happy Friday Everyone!

My son is begging me for this set!



As a guy, it’s not always easy to express yourself. You know you want to say it, but you just don’t know how. That’s why we’ve created the Dude, You’re Welcome! Kit. Quickly build a card that says just what you want it to say, whether it’s “#%&@!” because you messed up (when does that happen?), for a Special Occasion (you know the occasion), “I _____ You” (love, adore, miss, see?), or a simple “Thank You.”

We’ve got your back. Dude, you’re welcome.

Kit includes:

* Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
* Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
* Twelve gray envelopes
* A Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad
* An instructional guide (for the most novice stamper!)
