Day 5 WTG Sneak Peek

You saw this set on the VIP Hop as it was the featured set 2 weeks early, it's time now to see it right before it's available for purchase TONIGHT!!!!!! 

WTG My How You've Grown is a set that brings tears to the eyes of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc... This set is CHOCK FULL of tear jerkers.  I made mine into a Masculine card that I plan on giving to my son Christopher.  You see Christopher and I started out life by ourselves, broke and alone.  We had each other and our love!  Christopher was a God send I swear.  I knew I was pregnant when my unit in the Army was called up to go to war in the first Gulf War, me being young and stupid didn't want to "miss out" so I deployed without telling anyone.  I made it to 5 months pregnant before getting "caught".  You see I was Team Chief and no one but me drove my 2 1/2 Ton truck.  Well backing that sucker up with a generator trailor attached was a challenge to me, I could do it however not perfectly straight...the day I was left behind my team jumped sight with the 101st Airborne squad we were attached to and ended up driving through a mine field.  They didn't get far, Thank God, and had to stop and back up in the same tracks they had left.  I must say, Christopher kept me and my team alive to see another day by being a part of me.  I was left behind and a better driver was behind the wheel of my truck.  We all have Angels and Christopher is mine.  He has been constant Joy in my life...Yes, there have been bad times but nothing will ever take away a Mother's Love for her child, nothing....so with that long story I give you my card.  The sentiment is also from the newly to be released set, Clearly Sentimental about Parenting.

Now let's hop on over to Kim's Blog and see what other kind of eye candy we have in store for us from the Super Phenomenal DT
