Pies of Love

Pie of Love

Hi All!

Today card was inspired by this card I saw on Pinterest. I loved the idea of personalizing a card that has real meaning. So, I made two cards: one for my husband (above), and one for my daughter (below).

Pie of Love

In the video, I also give more detailed info about the cards – a little insight into my home life. 🙂

Hope you enjoy it!

    When I first looked at the card, I thought it was a beach ball. When I looked closer, I thought it was such a clever idea to personalise a card in this way. I’m sure your husband and daughter really appreciated their card and all the sentiments you wrote. You are so blessed to have such a loving family. I’m very happy for you as I can tell you are a good Mom and wife too!

    Quite a unique and personalised idea. I’m sure they will adore your efforts Darlene. Wonderful tips about lining the pie potions back and much easier than masking for sure.

    Your daughter sounds amazing, especially for a teenager, with her life rules! I bet she’s a great role model for your younger daughter as well. And, I think you’re pretty amazing too, Darlene! 🙂 Love these cards, and thank you for giving the tip about lining up the pie chart pieces when you glue them down. I’m sure your husband & daughter both loved their cards! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    Cool cards Darlene, I love this idea! Love your daughter’s rules too and I love that your husband brings you ladies cupcakes. You have a great family and that is rare these days, so enjoy them to the fullest! Hugs, Brenda

    What a fun idea Darlene. I think I might make one each for our two daughters, 50 and 49 yo and our 47 yo son. It is interesting what is coming into mind what to say to each of them. I am sure you are very proud of both your daughters and of course, your husband.

    I thought your piece about estrogen 24/7 was so real. My husband is in the same position as we have two young daughters and 2 pets who are female, even though the dog seems to not realize it. I think she was spayed way too early. Thanks for sharing your life and neat card idea.

    You are amazing because…you run this awsome website for us and teach us plenty! Thanks!
    My 29th wedding anniversary is on Sunday and I think this would be the perfect card for my husband too! 😎

          Darlene, I don’t know how close you are to the hurricane but stay safe! We have been monitoring the news. I am on the atlantic coast in Nova Scotia so hurricane season has begun…we may see the remnants to Harvey yet up here! 😎

            I am about 5 hours north of the storm. We’re just expected to get a little rain and some cooler weather. You’re kind to be concerned about me Carol! 🙂
