Birthday Gifts from My Boys

I thought I'd share my birthday presents from my boys with you.  First up is Marcel.   Let's just say this little man is absolutely in love with Legos.  Here's the conversation, "Mommy, you take me to the Lego store?"  "Mommy, you build Lego ships with me?"  "Mommy, do we have enough dollars to buy a new Lego box?"  "Mommy, you put this arm on my Lego guy?"  You get the picture...he is 100% addicted to Legos...thus my present.  Wrapped beautifully by Nana in tissue paper and presented to me with pure pride.
 And this from my sweet Jonathon:  #1 Mom :)
 And my confident teenager's hand made card to me!  The inside said, "Happy Birthday Mother!  I would have given you my art projects to you for your b-day, but then again they're my projects which are very bad!  So instead, I made you this prettyfull card!  Love, your best, most caring, loving, athletic, hot, strong, cool, radical, amazing....son!" True to his thirteen year old style!




















And now...onto my card for this week's Stampin' 411 challenge.  I decided to take Diane's lead from her cards here and here where she let's the beautiful paper do the talking.  This is all Stampin' Up products card.  Hope you like it!

Aww! Your boys are adorable. Especially Marcel. I'm guessing that to give up a Lego man means you're pretty darn special. ;)

Love the card. I've made a few lately where I've let the paper do the talking - there's so much gorgeous paper out there!

Awwwww, your presents are so sweet! I have two boys who also give me presents similar to yours! Funny story though, yesterday my Nicholas asked if he could have my present back from this year because he needs a birthday gift for his girlfriend of 1 week!!! He's 11! The answer was No way, but I'm sure you knew that!! As always a fabulous creation, you rock the challenges!!

Every mom needs a Darth Vader for her b-day! Home made gifts are the best (am I biased because I am a card maker?).
Your Christmas card is very beautiful. Love the buttons and the vintage style.

I love your boys gifts, especially how your son managed to find that many ways to describe himself. :) Your card is stunning; I love the soft hues you've used. Great job!

Love the card from you son and the sentiment...well it speaks for itself. That's a keeper.
Love your card this week...the buttons add just the right touch.

aww, how sweet are your boys? I miss hearing "mommy." I had to laugh reading about the card from your oldest. Jake used to say to Mom, from Jake in his cards and I would always say, hmmm, shouldn't you say a little more to the woman who gave you life? So now he starts out that way, but adds a heartfelt letter to me :) Your son, however, knows how to spruce it up already!! :) Oh, and lovely card...I smitten with your buttons :)

How fun were those presents. Awesome!
Once my brother gave our mom an "explosion" for a gift. His version(a toilet paper roll with some tp and string and stuff sticking out like it had exploded)
Love your Christmas card. Very pretty.

Ha ha ha ha ha...Lynn, your gifts are so cute! I had to read your post and share with my 16 year old daughter. We're sitting here smiling ear to ear! Love the lego story and how Marcel had Nana package up Darth Vader in such a lovely gift box for you :] LOL The #1 Mom is such a sweet gift and your teen's card sounds like something my daughter would say...switching the gender reference of course :] Happy belated birthday girlie! I have to go scope and find out which day it was...I wonder if we share our special day!

Gorgeous card as well. Your colors are some of my favorites and I LOVE your design!!

It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession...

He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:
