Happy Friday Everybody!!
Two days of sun!! I can hardly stand it. The trees have tiny leaves on them, my flowers are up high, and there are dandelions in the yard!!! I have had lots of different things going on since my last post. I had so much fun making cards at Ronda Wade's Summer Mini PJ Event. And no, it ended up I couldn't wear my pajamas because I had to stop at the store on the way there. I was a half-hour late, making poor Ronda worry sick as I am always the first one to arrive (I thought it started at 6:30, but it was 6 p.m.). So she helped me catch up. We made baggie books again, featuring 4 new stamps and product from the Stampin' Up Summer Mini Catalog. We ended up with 20 beautiful cards that I will be CASEing many times over for sure. Then to top my night off, I got lost twice on the way home (mind you, I only had about 10 miles to drive at the max). It wasn't so bad because I expected it would happen when I saw I couldn't go back the same way, as the road was closed. I have taken different routes many times, but for some reason it felt and looked entirely different at 10:30 p.m. (in pitch black darkness). So I just kept driving around in circles until I found my way. I never get upset or freaked out when I get lost because it happens all the time and I have a compass in my SUV (didn't take my GPS of course).
Today I want to show you my Mother's Day card I made yesterday using the new Flower Fest Stamp Set in the Summer Mini. My mom passed away 5 years ago, but I honor her by making cards for my daughter's instead as they are mother's and need kudos also. I didn't think I would like this stamp set as it is so different from what I typically buy. However, I can't resist stamp images that you can use with our punches. I ended up loving the card, what do you think:
I hope all of you have a beautiful Mother's Day, even if you are not a mother, I'm sure you have served as a fill-in mother (which is even better yet). Personally I think everyday should be Mother's Day, but then it probably wouldn't be as special if we celebrated every day. Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,
