Happy Mother's Day


Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day, I sure did. My Mother's Day was extended from yesterday thru lucky am I!! Yesterday my husband cooked us breakfast and then we went to Balboa Park and let the kids run around and just enjoy being outside. Then we also went out to dinner! Today our youngest daughter was dedicated in church which was really special. Then we went out to breakfast with my parents, sister and her husband, and my aunt, uncle and cousin. Then we just hung out at my parent's and let the kids play in the pool. Wow...what a great weekend I had! I am so blessed with two beautiful daughters! Right now as I am typing this I am listening to my husband give my older daughter her bath as he teaches her the alphabet. Life can't get much better.
Onto my card for today. I actually made two cards for Taylor's challenge. The first one I really like the color combo of Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, and Ocean Tides but kind of thought it looked a little too busy. I stamped the background with my new Guide Lines Two stamp set. The second card I really like. Last week I talked about how I was planning on giving my daughter's cards for mother's day, so the second card is one I made for my older daughter. The cute little card stock picture of the little girl is from K & Company's Amy Butler line. Isn't she just so cute!! The other card says "10 reasons to smile" and I stamped "you" with my Fresh Alphabet stamp set. The close up picture, it's kind of hard to tell, is of the most gorgeous button. I got in the mail last week my package from Papertrey and one of the things I ordered were the Sweet Blush vintage buttons. As soon as saw the bag I spotted this button. It's big and shiny and looks like a crystal. I knew I had to use in on my daughter's card!
Well I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!
