Thinking of Mom!

This card is for my Mom. I miss her lots as we're both so busy working and only get to talk occasionally when schedules align which just doesn't seem to be too often. My Mom likes any card I make for her but I always try to do something extra nice for her. This weekend on SCS there were lots of challenges for VSN & Sunday Featured Stamper. This one is for the challenge to try Faux Cloisonne & FS186. It was the first time I tried this technique, it was fun. This is also for the H2H Challenge this week to include stitching. Thanks for stopping by to see my card! Supplies: CTMH CS Olive, Sweet Leaf; CTMH Stamps Love Birds, Aspiration; Versamark; Gold Embossing Powder; CTMH Organdy and Sweet Leaf Stitched Ribbon; Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls

Lovely card, Lela. Love the color (green is my favorite!) and those great flowers. And also the super embossed background, adds that subtle touch of texture. Thanks for joining us at Heart 2 Heart challenges!

Pretty card, Lela. Send me an e-mail sometime when you will be in Athens (other than this weekend -- aka "move-in weekend".

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
