ADFD New Release Friday - "Sweet Boy"


T.G.I.F!!  Finally Friday has arrived and that means that it is new release time over at "A Day for Daisies."  Today love is in the air...especially since Monday is Valentine Day!!  I have for years now always bought my mother gifts on Valentine and Sweetest Day.  She is truly the love of my life.  :-D  I think that bond between mother and child is the most precious, priceless commodity around.  I encourage you to step outside of your usually Valentine Day ritual of giving gifts to your sweetheart and give to someone who would be totally appreciative (not to say that your sweetheart wouldn't be) and surprised by your gift. :-D

Okay, enough chatter about's my new release creation using the oh so so "sweet boy" from ADFD.

I love the way this card turned out and immediately when I saw the image I knew it had to be in a heart.  I didn't take a picture of the inside of the card, but I wrote the following sentiment...

"Love at first sight happens when a baby is born."

I truly believe this is really what love at first sight is all about.  It is that moment when you meet a stranger and you can't take your eyes off them.  They consume your every thought and all you want to do breath them in. (This coming from a woman who has no children.)  I truly think that the relationship a parent has with their child is...well words can't describe's like the relationship we should have with God. 

Well, I hope that you enjoy these images as much as I do.  You can head over to the store and snag them today.  Oh, don't forget that you can also pick the $2.00 deal which is this adorable image below.
