What is Love?

"Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor
after her husband has walked across it in his boots [year after year]." ~ Hoosier Farmer

There are times that I would like to shut the front door on my husband and not let him in because he is covered in caked, dried mud from his head to his toes. But alas, he does come in and I realize how hard he worked for our family that day and it makes the trail he's left to the laundry room a little more manageable. (This also applies to the little ones too, but they don't work, they play!)

The Craft's Meow

We've got another The Craft's Meow beauty that we are showcasing today, Lovely Labels designed by Elizabeta.  This set too, is simply amazing. One of the labels have been embossed and fussy cut, I stamped a sentiment onto a banner and assembled the card with a bit of fine green silk ribbon from May Arts and a button.

As a reminder, after a short, unexpected break, The Craft's Meow is coming back with a bang to showcase sets from the September Release, we'll have showcases each day this week! Be sure to stop by the blog to comment for your chance to win Lovely Labels.

  7. Gorgeous green Karen~very sophisticated! I hear ya~my hubby comes in covered with grass (we have a large yard to mow)...he's kind enough to shower right away and not bring those clothes into our bedroom (my allergies would run amuck). It was nice of you to let your hubby in. ;)
