DAY TEN: Here’s the tenth blog post in a row this month! Now if only I could keep this up – then in a few years, you’d have seen all the projects I’ve made!
Recently, my husband was about to fly out of town for three back-to-back business trips, and I wanted to do something to surprise him and show I was thinking of him. On the eve of his trip, he had to leave the house after dinner and attach a perma-board (permanent, weatherproof flyer) to the “For Sale” sign on one of his listings. When he left, I was doing dishes, but as soon as the front door was closed, I raced to my craft studio and made a card for him. Since I’d just come up with the idea while rinsing off dinner plates, the card I made wasn’t very elaborate.
As I flipped through some of my Cricut cartridge booklets, I came across a phone-shaped cut-out from the Wild Card cartridge and thought it would be fun to make a phone-shaped card.
As a child of the 1980s, I couldn’t escape that overplayed Stevie Wonder song, so I thought I’d use the line from the famous chorus for the inside of my card.
As soon as I finished the card and took these pictures, I tucked it into an envelope with a thank you card for the friends he was staying with and sealed it. Then, I hid the envelope and raced back to the kitchen to finish cleaning up. When he got home, he asked if I had been there the whole time. I let him know I took a little break. 😉
I took it to the post office the next morning, and it’s a good thing I acted quickly because it took 6 days to arrive, and he was leaving on the 7th day to go to another state on his whirlwind tour! Thankfully, it arrived in the NICK of time. Whew! Needless to say, he was happily surprised and my mission was accomplished.
