Valentiny Cards for Daddy!
Hey everyone, I hope everyone is doing well! I have been really busy and just haven't had the time to get in my crafting corner as of lately. But I just wanted to share what my kids and I did for their Daddy on Valentine's Day. As I said in my post with my Valentine card, I wanted to put my card in his lunch box. Then I decided that all of us would make a card to put in his lunch box. Well, we scrambled around the day before Valentine's, trying to get 3 little cards made after school and before their Daddy came home from work. Whew, what a task! I had to help a little with each one, but for the most part, they did them all on their own. We got them done and had to hide them somewhere that I would have easy access to them when I packed his lunch the next morning! After that he came home and such, and as we were packing the leftovers from dinner into a bowl that would fit into his lunchbox for the next day...he informs me that he does not need a lunch for the next day (Valentine's Day), because work was having a special meal for them. Agggghhh! Now what do I do??? Well, lucky for me he still needs to take some kind of breakfast food, because he leaves so very early in the morning. So the time came to pack his lunch, and I realized I was out of his "normal" breakfast item and he says to me, "I will be fine without breakfast, or I can get something from the machine....NOW WHAT do I do??? So then I did come up with some kind of breakfast item for in his lunch and made it so he HAD to take his lunch box, and I successfully got his cards into his lunch without him knowing! Yeaaaaa! Whew! I never knew that it was so much work to sneak cards into a lunch box! LOL Anyways, he enjoyed getting them and was pleasantly surprised! So now that I shared with you all my challenges of trying to do something special for my hubby, here are the cards that they made.
