e is for excellent

Just look at this sweet little card for Ernie.
Ernie took great care of our sons when they were born up til they were five years old.
Ernie still comes to lend a hand around the house, scrubbing, sparkling, singing, laughing and happy to see the "boys to men" in her life, plus my girl.  She has what I call the "Mary Poppins" touch, transforming tears into laughter, polishing tarnish to shine, and just doing her work with a smile and always good common sense.  She is a fine, honest lady.
How great is this little card for her - to have to drum up business.  She is great with babies and kids of all ages and hey, even adults like me with a kid-at-heart attitude.  I mean I do draw all day and play with colors!

Just look at this sweet and sparkly back for the card for "ernie" - she will be thrilled!
Even if the economy is tough, there will always be babies to care for and houses to keep after.
e- is for excellent and f- is for faboolosity!  Heidi you are a living doll to do this for Ernie.
I just know she will have tears when she I show her this!  Thanks again!

Re-posting because I cannot spell for the life of me this week!

I had a "Mary Poppins" growing up. A Polish twenty-something who came to live with us when I was little. I loved Carolina dearly. Your children are so lucky to have someone magical like that in their lives!

Debra,
She would love Maine!
I think she would commute to Maine, but she does not drive! I'd be happy to be her driver.

And what a fantastic card. Just the thing.

Oh so sweet Patricia, Ernie sounds like a true diamond. I found an Ernie for my boys, but it was an Andrew & he was amazing! Long may dear Ernie continue to bring her magic to her special families.
