Card Chain...

I made this card for someone in a card chain that I am involved in.  I love this little image and it's accompanying sentiment.  I am not too much of a cutsie image person but "cute" always seems to work for Valentines.

My son is finishing up his fourth year, senior year of high school swimming.  And swim team has been a great experience for all of us.  Certainly for Cormick but also for Joe and I as we have found the swim parents over the years to be such a nice group of people.  In fact, after home meets, the parents often found it necessary to hold a practice of our own down at the the local  water hole!  I am going to really, really miss watching Corm swim and compete but I will also miss getting together with this really great group of people on a weekly basis.  This coming Saturday is Sectionals and it is kinda a big deal as it determines which swimmers make it to State.  Most swimmers get special suits for this meet called "fast" suits....they are incredibly thin and only last for perhaps 4-6 times.  I usually go pick up the suits for the kids and they are sold in Milwaukee...a town about 1 hour away.  By picking up these suits I am able to blend two things I love.....as there is a fabulous stamping store that is about a mile away from the suit store.  And, I only go to this store once a year when I pick up the suits!  It is the leading contact for Whipper Snapper Design stamps as that is a stamp company right here in Wisconsin.  So, this store has 1000's and 1000's and 1000's of stamps.  If you ever make it to Wisconsin it is worth going into this store.  The amount of stamps is mind blowing!  So, after picking up the suits I always make a small detour to the store before I head home.

So, here is my card.

                                        


And, here is the inside!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments.

Be well,
Sheila

This IS so darn cute, Sheila! And it will no doubt kick off a chain of events........love your story about double-duty in the city. Most resourceful. Will keep Cormick in my best thoughts. Thanks for sharing.
