Mother’s Day Card for the Dads – Free Download

April 29, 2009



Maybe I stayed up past — way past — my usual bedtime of midnight to hand-letter and design this. But my Staedtler illustration pens and a 9×13 pan of brownies kept me fine company while Ryan snored away on the couch.

So do you have a honey that can use a little direction in honoring you this mother’s day? Download this free greeting card, then check off your wants needs. Because our significant others can’t read our minds. What? You didn’t know? That’s okay. I forget all the time.

    sorry, i don’t know about the red bull thing.
    but i just wanted to say this is such a cute idea, and i think it’s hilarious that there is a sex/ no sex option.
