Happy Mother's Day & Freshly Made Sketches!

Picture this.....a box of brand new sneak peek Stampin' Up! supplies arrives at your home while you are gone, you are stuck for 2 days serving on the Grand Jury Duty.....and you don't get to play until 3 days later! Wow, that was hard. I got home from both days too mentally exhausted to play.

Finally, I was able to dig out all of my new stuff and create a Mother's Day card for my mom:

I used 5 new items on this card: a new stamp set called "Betsy's Blossoms", new designer paper called "Floral District", Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and I also used one of the new In-Color cardstock & ink color called "Raspberry Ripple". I LOVE how they match! And I decided to play along with "Freshly Made Sketches" this week and use their sketch that you will find below:

I would like to take this time and wish all of you mom's, grand-mom's, step-mom's, adopted moms.....Happy Mother's Day! We are driving to meet with my family at a local restaurant today.

  • Cardstock: Raspberry Ripple **NEW, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade

    I've been drawn twice for jury duty, but have never actually served. I think that DH's job in law enforcement exempts me from most of the cases... I always thought it would be interesting!
