For Mum...

Hello good people of Earth! Well, it's been a beautiful day here in Nashville. Sun was out, nice breeze, and people are out and about...or were out and about. It's almost 9pm. I'm so late with this post, but it was just too nice a day to be in the craft room! Thank you for all of your well wishes! We are all recovering..schools start back on Monday and downtown has lights again! They're saying Opryland Hotel won't be open for 4-6 months, though..and that's heartbreaking. If you've never been there, you're missing out. It's such a grand hotel and, especially at Christmas, is just dazzling! I'm sure, though, it'll come back better than ever! :)

Anyway...do I spend too much time yapping before I show my card? I feel like I talk a lot..lol..sorry about that! On to the card...


I made this for my mum for Mother's Day! This isn't the first card I made. I made her card about 2 months ago, but last week she was over and looking through my cards and found it..ugh!! Ok, so I made this one tonight. It's completely different from the first card, but her favorite color is yellow, so she should like it. I got my Beautiful Blooms 2 in the mail this week and also the BB die#1 (just fyi - if you've been waiting on #'s 2 and 3- they are in stock! I ordered them this morning! Yeeee!!). I just love dies. They are the greatest thing in the stamping world in my opinion! There is only one piece of ink on this card. The flowers are completely dies that I used on...yeah, I know I know..say it with me..."PATTERNED PAPER". I've never met a patterned paper I didn't like. It's a sickness, people. I used the papertrey rickrack die to create the 'stems' and just tied a little ribbon and voila! I really wanted to put the sentiment at the bottom- that's why it is short like that- but I realized I am in desperate need of sentiments. Hopefully, there will be some cool ones in this month's release at papertrey! Woot! :0)

Ok, well that's it. I've got some things to do before I go to bed. That cake on the island is calling my name..and it's yelling louder than the pralines and cream ice cream from the freezer! lol

I hope all you mums out there have a wonderfully happy Mother's Day tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!!

Keva, I love the graphic flowers! How nice that you used black, and yet it's still a soft, feminine card. I'm sure your mum will love it!

Love this card ......... I am not sure I could have left the pralines and cream behind .......I might have had to have both!!! :)

Terri said...
