A little behind ...


Happy Tuesday! I think I am finally catching up from an extremely busy weekend! This is the Mother's Day card that I sent out to my mom and step mom. On Mother's Day we went to try and new resturant that my mother in law and sister in law had been raving about. It was a 45 minute drive and let me tell you, so not worth it! It was a buffet style resturant and the buffet tables looked as if they hadnt been cleaned all day. It was really gross! But my MIL loved it so I kept my mouth shut until we were on our way home. And the important part was that we spent the day with family, not that the resturant wasnt very good. My kids for me an Ipod Shuffle. Of course I had to drop hints as to what to get me. My son also made me a card at school and on it he wrote that I am a great mom because I am a Rockstar. Gotta love that! For the card, I started with a light teal for the card base. I then ran the light green cardstock through my sizzix, using my cuttlebug embossing folder. I distressed the edges of the brown and teal paper and used my SU paper piercing guide to poke the holes in the corners. I used my Marvy scalloped punches for the circles. Obviously. :) I then stamped and water colored the flower image. It says "Happy Mothers Day" on the inside. I hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day. Now to start thinking about what to get my husband for Father's Day. I have the fixafella from StampingBella on its way for his card.
