Happy Mother’s Day 2017

I didn’t forget, I just didn’t want to post this before I gave it to the intended recipient. So, for all you mothers out there (and you know who you are) –

Happy Mother’s Day 2017 (belated)

I had a great time with all my kids at my daughter’s house in Baltimore, played with the grandson, and generally just got to relax and enjoy the people I love most in this world – and the people who are extremely fun to hang out with any time. (Okay, an aside here – why does WordPress not recognize the word extremely? Maybe cause I had it in italics? [shakes head] So I did the old “add to dictionary” thing).

Here is the card I put together for my daughter. I completely CASEd it from Pinterest – so the design is not mine, but I just thought it was totes adorbs!

Here’s what you see in this card:

  • Blushing Bride Cardstock
  • Blushing Bride Solid Baker’s Twine
  • Delicate White Doilies
  • Oh So Succulent Stamp Set and Dies Bundle
  • Glitter Enamel Dots
  • Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies
  • Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo ink pads
  • Mint Macaron ink pad
  • Garden Green ink pad
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Falling Petals embossing folder

Now, I didn’t mention all those retired and unavailable items to depress you. Really. But I want you to know that if you DO have those products, and you’re a hoarder like me, keep creating with them. Their beauty is not diminished by their lack of availability. Don’t let those older stamp sets just lie around – use them!

There will always be something new coming around, you know that. So use what you have and enjoy what you own. And I will update this card with new products (once I get my own hands on them) so you can still use the design, no matter what.

Now go forth and do something creative today!
