A special card-making poem by my own dear mama!

I seriously have the cutest mom around. Not only is she my biggest fan, attending all of my local boutiques and classes (even when they’re repeats), but she’s also a talented poet. Last Valentine’s Day she sent me a handmade Valentine with this poem included. It’s the best poem I’ve ever read, and I've been waiting a year to share it with you. If this doesn’t get you in the mood to create love notes, I don’t know what will. Enjoy! :)
Dear Megan,
I’ve used my Stampin’ Write Markers, 
And squeezed my squeezin’ punch.
I employed fussy cuttin’,
And used brads by the bunch.
I peeled and adhered 3D foam squares, 
Pulled out “Click-n-Sticks” for a mile,
And sorted out perfect cardstock,
From a multi-colored pile. 
I spared no painstaking effort, 
Applying rub-ons and my stick of glue.
All of my supplies were “archival safe,”
And, of course, “acid free” too!
My stamps of hearts and flowers, 
Adorned with colors, rare. 
From clever, fold-up ink pads,
That I used with a great deal of care. 
Pretty ribbons and lovely self-adhesives,
Took their special place, 
So each had an eye-catching style,
Of flow, and flair, and grace. 
I was extremely proud and happy,
When my Valentine production was through.
I’d used techniques learned from an expert,
At the classes I took from you!
Love, 
Mom

Isn't she amazing? I sure think so! Love you, Schmom! 


Cheers!

That's awesome! I've always loved your moms Meg, and this just goes to show that she truly is an awesome woman. I'll have to make sure I see her next time I'm in town.
