Happy June 10th!

Good Day Inky Ones!

Happy June 10th!  No there is no holiday or actually any reason to celebrate this particular date!  It's just that I am happy!  I have had two Successful Open Houses and my last one is tonight at 7:00pm.  I am expecting some of my die hard stampers and a couple of new ladies who I hope will become addicted. lol

I have several orders coming and of course I need a card to put in the order.  So for today's share I have my June thank you card done and ready to go.

Have a look -

Ain't it purty?  I managed to use all the new in-colors and the new Mosaic embossing folder on this card.  I am so in love with these colors.  I used Betsy's Blossoms for my background and then punched them out with the Curly Label Punch.  I had Papillion Potpourri on my desk and decided to use that also.  I added a couple of large rhinestones and a little greeting punched out with my old fav - Word Window punch and Modern Label punch. 
A simple but elegant card.  Turned out great if I do say so myself!
Now on a side note - The Mommy Project is going well and I have just sent out the fifth card.  I am also doing a miniature of the front of the card and writing out the sentiment inside.  I will be journling these cards with an eye to giving her the "This and That" Journal on Mother's Day 2014.   Today's card said " I am so pleased that you encouraged us to be ourselves and saw a uniqueness in each of us"
These cards are designed to bring either a smile or a tear or just to remind mom that she is loved and to reaffirm that she is a good person. 
I have received a call from her each week and she is now wondering how many of these there are!  I didn't tell her as I don't want to spoil the fun!  52 cards for the year is a definite commitment but one that I gladly take on.  My mom will be 84 this July! 
Have to go and find something for supper.  DH is home a day early and is now throwing off my schedule lol. 
Heaven's to Betsy hugs!


  1. Lovely card Katherine !! I love using the Betsy's Blossom big flower as a background too. Cheers !!

  2. Very pretty....I haven't used my Betsy's Blossoms very much but I like what you did with it here!
