This weeks challenge is:

As a Mother who had 3 kids in 3 years, who are now 25, 24 and 23, there were times that I was definitely overwhelmed. Ever been there? So much to do in one day. Clean the house and go shopping then what to make for dinner. Most of the time is was fine, but once in a while it all just swam in my head leaving me a bit frazzled.

I so much wanted to use the Hershey Value Pack, therefore I decided to go the non-conventional route. Here is my "Hershey Deciding" card.

Poor Hershey, she looks so overwhelmed today. What should she do first? Clean the house or go shopping? How is she going to make the bones for dinner? Poor Hershey!

Aren't these images just too cute. You can click on any of these photos to get a better look at them.

I left the inside blank for writing a personal note. I know personal notes from my kids mean so much more to me than pre-printed sentiments. That made leaving the inside blank perfect for such a card. I was thinking of writing something along the line of "for all you did...." if I give it to my mother, who loves dogs. Or "for all you do..." if I give it to my daughter who is a brand new mom.
