Mother's Day card

Happy Sunday!  It has been absolutely BEAUTIFUL here in Oregon these last few days.  My fingers are crossed it stays this way.  I have been taking advantage of the sunny skies and getting out there walking as much as I can to train for the 1/2 marathon I am walking in 2 short weeks.  Unfortunately I got a HUGE blister on my ankle yesterday due to a rather large hole in the heel of my shoe that I was unaware of.........NOT HAPPY!!  The shoes were only a month old so I promptly took them back to the running store and exchanged them for a new pair but I am worried this sucker on my ankle will not heel in time for the race.  Somehow I will have to power thru it!  Wish me luck!!

Here is the last card we did at my recent card class.  Thought this was a perfect card for Mother's Day.  A few of the ladies unfortunately do not have their mother's here anymore so they all stamped Happy Birthday on it.  The cardstock colors are Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade, and Whisper White.  The ink colors are Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade, Rose Red, and So Saffron.  The stamp set is Bloomin Marvelous from the recent Sale-a-bration promo.  Most of the ladies who come to my classes are not interested in purchasing any products- they just come to make cards- so they could care less if I use retired products, papers, ink colors, etc.  Which honestly - sometimes makes things much easier!  Especially with sentiments.  The butterflies were punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch in the spring mini.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
