    I use to leave notes for my daughter, when she was in school. She now does it for her Husband.
    I love the beautiful card you made!! I am going to try your technique that you shared.

  3. Beautiful little notes, I’m sure Courtney loved them!

  4. I love that postage stamp die! My 6 year old LOVES getting notes in her lunchbox! I guess I should tell her to start saving them too LOL! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  5. These are great. I’ve stamped much smaller lunch notes for my 3 boys but you’ve taken it to a new level. I did go ahead and grab that deal on distress inks since I don’t have any but have been wanting to try them. Thanks for the link.

    Thanks so much for the shopping tip. Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies…needless to say, there will soon be a few new sets in my collection!! The notes to your daughter are touching. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Really fun cards, Darlene! So much wonderful stamping, inking and coloring…wow! Your girls are so lucky to have you for a mom!

  8. I totally just hopped over to SSS and snatched those holiday distress inks and the new mini round! Thanks for the tip!

    That is just the sweetest thing to do for your kids, what a great idea. In this day and age of text messaging and emails and stuff like that, a hand written note for your little ones really means a lot to them. I too put a note once in a while for my hubby,(believe it or not, I pack his lunch every day, been doing it for almost 41 years!!!!!), specially on Valentine’s Day and his birthday, I make a cute card with a sweet message and put it between the sandwich and his slice of cake, he loves it. This little notes are super fabulous Darlene and I happen to have that die, Yippie!!!
    I’m going to make a good bunch of this notes and give them to my daughters so they can stick it inside my grandkids lunch bags, what a sweet surprise that will be.
    Thank you for this great idea Darlene!!

  12. Wonderful lunchbox notes! So cute and great messages. Now and again, I used to put a note in my husband’s lunch. He loved them and said they made his day. : )

    p.s. please do more blog hop’s!! you were fantastic in the penny black one from Monday. that was so fun to go to each and see how they used the stamps/stencils 😉

  14. that’s so adorable cute, to fill the lunchbox of your daughter with love. Blessings to you for showing your daughter how much she is loved. I like! I like! I like! My son just begins to read, but you gave me a great example how to fill not just his tummy but his heart as well … have a nice week, greetings from Berlin, Germany, Claude

    Thank you for the heads up for clearance items at SSS. I went immediately to their site and purchased $100 worth of merchandise for $26. Thank you! Thank you! Having been a teacher for 30 years, I know the joy on children’s faces when they have a note from their mother in their lunch box. For the child, it is almost as good as their mother being there at that moment. Priceless expressions of love!!!

  16. This is so sweet
