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!
