Kirby Cards

Hi, everybody!  Well, I'm happy to say I finally got my car washed today!  Everytime I thought about washing it, it either was raining or looked like rain.  My poor car was AWFUL!!!  While I was waiting on it, I kept watching this darling little (I'd say three years old) girl run around outside and I kept worrying a car was going to run over her.  Then when her mother's car was ready, her mom takes off for the car and leaves the little one trailing after her.  Instead of waiting at the car for her mom to open the door, she runs off behind the car and runs into Northwest Highway.  I about had a heart attack!!   Her mom runs after her and yells and spanks, and carrys on like crazy.  To me, it was obviously the mom's fault - why on earth would she let that little one anywhere near cars without holding her hand?????  Sorry for the rant, but PLEASE!!!  On to happier things...

Kirby, a guy I work with, special orders a lot of cards from me.   Here are a couple I've done for him recently.  This one is for his anniversary.
The bird image is from doll face design.  I also did this one for his son, who just graduated with his MBA. 

 Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

  7. Sometimes you just want to slap people, don't you? LOL...It's funny, my kids are teenagers now and sometimes in heavy traffic, they still reach for my hand instinctively and visa versa. I'm glad all was 'okay' although I agree, totally the mom's oops there.

    Your cards are precious Lori. The anniversary card should be framed!! Congrats to the son for the MBA. :)
    Hope you're having a great week and thank you for sharing again at MIM...always such a blast to visit your blog.

  10. wow, these are both awesome, I luv the sweet details you had.. fabby...hope you have a super duper week!

    enjoy *~*

  11. It's always good to rant and rave a little my friend.. Your cards look wonderful. I am always inspired when I pop in here!

  12. Lori, Both the cards are great, but my favorite is the one with the birds. Love the row of little hearts on the bottom.

    Sometimes I wonder about people too. I see mothers and their children walking down our road with the mothers several yards in front of the children oblivious to what they are doing. Usually the children are running in the middle of the street and I just cringe because we live on a blind curve.

    BTW, Saw you on Make it Monday and enjoyed my visit.

  15. Hi Lori

    I was horrified hearing your story of that poor little girl, seriously, what was the Mother thinking?!
    My friends rib me about being a helicopter parent, but I don't think I'm that bad. I will definitely let my boys cross the road by themselves when they are 18, lol!

    Lori, your card is absolutely amazing, so beautiful. The image is lovely.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

    Michelle :o)

  19. Don't blame you for your rant. Little ones are so precious, it is a pity that some parents loose sight of that.

    Your cards are gorgeous.

    I saw your card on Make it Monday, I'm my lucky number '7' this week.
