Good Morning, blogging friends!
I cannot believe it's almost May!
Before we know it, it will be the SUMMER - yes!
I can't wait! That not only means having my babies home (yay!)
from school but a much needed break for me - hee hee!
I love the summer so much ♥
But I'm getting ahead of myself!
I'm actually posting my Calendar Girl card (a day late - shhhh!)
Carol was our hostess this month and her theme was to create a card with a Mother's Day
theme and use the color pink or red.
About my image: It's really an old stamp that I saw and just HAD TO HAVE,
seriously, like 8-9 years ago!
I spied it in a card magazine and tracked it down - they were unavailable
and I sat and watched ebay for forever. One day, it popped up!
I had 2 of my friends along side me watching it and luckily, I was the only bidder - so my .99c treasured stamp means the world to me and I was
glad to ink it up (again!) for this challenge. I stamped it in
Kiwi Kiss to offset the colors in the paper ~ it just didn't look right
in my Momento black ink. It felt right to put some matching color on it
since it's a 'stand alone' stamp. Up close, as you can maybe see,
it's very Monet' - a tiny series of little dots! Love it :)
I spied this GORGEOUS color combo challenge at
the Cupcake Inspirations blog and just had to use it!
I also followed the sketch at Paper Players #193 this week, super pretty ♥
Carol asked us to share a special memory about our mom ~
one thing that stands out amidst many wonderful things about her is that she can multi-task in the most wonderful manner!
Growing up in a military family, we not only moved around all the time,
but she was a wonderful baker, chef, seamstress, party planner, etc!
In between sewing handmade dresses and clothes for me,
clothes for my dolls and the dolls themselves, but was always making
a blanket, quilt, wedding cake, the entire bridal party dresses, foods for
parties, etc! I don't know how she managed it all ~ I'm barely able to get
meal on the table at night with all the food groups covered, LOL!
I love my mom and she's an amazing lady,
always someone I aspire to be like in many ways ♥
Be sure to stop in and see what the other Calendar Girls made
with this wonderful theme!
I'll enter my card into The Paper Players 193
and Cupcake Inspirations!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
