When things SUCK....

Happy Hump Day!  Whew, what a week already!
I thought I'd share a card with you I made for my mom.  Since my dad's passing, I stay with my mom at the farm once or twice a week.  We putter with stuff around the house (STILL trying to get things fixed AFTER the flood), conversation, dinner, knitting - Just time we can spend together.  I know she enjoys it and I do to.
Well, the past few weeks have been a bit rough on all of us - Family Drama at it's MOST Amazing and Disgusting peak.  :oP

When my dad was sick, he would always say "This SUCKS!"
So now, I can tell when my mom is having a rough day by her "This SUCKS" comments.
Some time ago I'd found this digi from Whimsie Doodles and haven't had a chance to use it until now.  :)
Seemed kind of appropriate for the "This SUCKS" theme lately......
Papers - Miscellaneous papers and Bazzill
Coloring - Copics
Tools - MS Punch
Extra STUFF - BLING (who wouldn't want to fly around on a blinged out vacuum like this???) ;o)
Ribbon and Dimensionals

Tonight our project - knocking down some fences - we should both be GOOD and STRESS-FREE after that exercise!!
 Here's to Hugs & Happy Days and LESS Sucky Days!

  1. So super cute Min! I know this will be a card that your Mom will post somewhere that she can see it often. I love the sentiment that you used too!!!

  2. Min, I'm so sorry!
    I didnt know about your dad I knew he was sick.
    I don't know how I missed that?
