Wow, what a roller coaster ride the past few days! It was my birthday Sunday, and I got to spend some time with both my families, the church one and the at home one! We went out to dinner on Sunday and the girls and I went to see the new Captain America. On top of that, the retirement list coming out and the excitement of free shipping this week! Oh, and my retirement predictions were 85% accurate this year, not too shabby!
Anyway, I have another mother's day card for you using Simple Stems and My Mother. This time, I knew I wanted to do some paper tole with the flowers, and I love the color combination I chose. Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Simple Stems, My Mother; Paper - Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Perfect Plum, Whisper White; Ink - Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana; Other - Word Window punch, Bitty Punch Pack, mini silver brads, stitched white grosgrain ribbon.
GOJUS!! (YILM!) One of the things that I find most distressing about retirement time is when I show cards I already made before the list came out and I see things I used to make the card go on the list and then have to list them in my ingredients and think, "No more stitched grosgrain?!?! NOOOOOOOOO!" It's really my favorite ribbon in the catalog! How can it go away?!?! Then I take a deep breath and think, "There's going to be some new schtuff in the catalog that is replacing this, and there is bound to be something I love just as much!"
Well, that's it! Don't forget to get your orders in for retiring product this week to make sure you get what you want and to take advantage of free shipping through Friday by visiting my webstore. And you can buy this card on Etsy!
