This is the "Thank You" card i made for the flowers. The inside says "Felling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not giving it". So i used the DC flower pack, a prima flower and a dollar stamp. Then i used my scallop edger with two different colors of pink paper and some gross-grain ribbon with some cute white edging and glued some old buttons on the ribbon. I generated the inside saying with my computer on pink paper. And that's it. I hope she like it.
My gosh I havn't made anything for a few days now. I'v had some not so good news and things going on in my life and I guess I'v just needed a break. But I really feel better when i'm making something. I will tonite.
I want to start a mini ablbum too. I started a sign with Yolibean and I want to finish that. I saw a really cute card "Just Keep Swimming" and i'd like to make one like it. So there there are plenty things to get started on...just do it. I will get started.
I don't know how many of you have kids but even as they grow into adults, they can cause our hearts to wonder why it feels like it does. Our teaching power is gone now, all we can do is watch them grow and learn as we have...by our mistakes. A mothers love is unconditional. Our love is powerful. Do our children know or realize that? You would think our kids know that we make mistakes too. I don't think our children's love for us is unconditional until they are much, much older. I posted a photo of the ocean because it is soothing for me and i need that now.
I want to put this card/tag on here. I made most of this myself, like the corset I drew and cut out. I laced up ribbon and tied a bow a the top. I made the flower from the "George and Basic Shapes" and wet them and crinkles them and put it together with a brad but i glued a bling in the center. There is some wedding lace at the top and bottom. A feather, some small roses in a petal and "pretty" tag. There is some torn paper, inked to look old and some bling over the top. So, I thought it turned out really pretty.
I made this Mothers day card using "A Child's Year" cart. I made the flowers myself using a small punch. The letters I tore out of paper and inked them. I added some lace and photo corners. This is a one sided card with a small envelope on the back for a note or a diary entry. I also made a reg. size envelope so it could be mailed.

I really like visiting other blogs...its like another pastime.
