Makes My Monday: Homestyle Hallmark

Despite my affinity for greeting card shops, admittedly, no pre-printed sentiment can be quite as personal as one created by one---or in this case, two---who knows you well.

From Sarah:



The illustration on the cover?
Mommy (perched on the potty): "May I have some privacy please, Honey?"

Sarah: "I just wanted to say..."



The interior reveal--
Sarah: "No, no you may not. Happy Mother's Day!"

And from Darren:



In his clearly strained word bubble, with apologies in advance to the genuinely---not simply maternally---hearing impaired,


Darren:"I love you! Are you def [sic]?"

Complete with the requisite tissue paper flower, the tokens from my twins---fully aware of my foibles---Make My Monday.

The fact that any kid would put a picture of his mother on a toilet just cracks me up...my kids will totally do that! Hysterical!

These are too funny/ cute! The best cards are hand made!

OH I LOVE these cards! I love the handmade ones as well (I received 8 this year!)

I love the handmade cards too. This year, my daughter was creative by baking me my favorite cake, an angel food cake. Unfortunately, the majority of my kids now feel they are too old for a handmade card, and bought me an absolutely hilarious card. But it wasn't hand made. :(

Priceless! Gotta love a card with a portrait of mom on the potty! Now go write the date on the back of them and save them!

Oh Lordy, Hallmark don't hold a CANDLE to these. They're genius. They're PRICELESS! Hope you had a great day...and maybe even some privacy:)

Those cards are hysterical! I can only imagine what our girls would say if they could talk...or maybe it's best that they can't yet. :)
