Mother's Day Cards

Hello Bloggy Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and got lots of crafty time.   I got some and will actually have a really cute Cricut/quilling/punch art project to show you just as a soon as a I find my hot glue gun and can finish working on it.   I have nooooo idea where that pesky little glue gun went but I'm thinking it might be at church.   Hmmmmmm.   Anyway, I was in the midst of vacuuming when my vacuum cleaner died (WHAT LUCK HUH?) so I thought I'd share some more cards.

The above card combines two of my favorite things to do - stamping and cross-stitching.   I intended on paper piercing the corners when all of a sudden I spotted some embroidery floss and thought - well why not?   The stamp is Penny Black and I have absolutely no idea who made the paper because it was in my scrap stash.  Once paper ends up in the scrap stash it's origins are a complete mystery to me.   :o)

Here's another one that actually just sold this weekend.   The bird stamp is from The Greeting Farm, and I embossed it on patterned paper, cut it out and then attached it to the card on foam tape.   I do know who made these papers - K&Co., and the punched flowers have dew drop centers.  

I promise I'll be back with some more Cricut creations - just as soon as my rechargeable batteries recharge and I can take pictures again.   I better go see if the vacuum cleaner is really broken or if I just overheated it.   I do that sometimes.  :o)

Have a wonderful, happy, blessed day!

Man I've Been a Bad Blogger Lately

Have you ever been really really busy and really really burned out and just BLAH?   Well that's where I've been for the last few weeks.   Luckily I think I'm coming out of it - thanks to the wonderful sunshine and warm-ish temperatures.   There's nothing like digging in the garden and getting stabbed on rose bushes to bring me out of my wintertime blues. :o)

And speaking of my garden check this out....

I know!   It really is spring when the grape hyacinths come up!   Yay!

In addition to getting muddy and injured in my yard, I've been quite busy in the craft room too.  I just put 17 new cards in my Etsy shop and I'll be posting some new Cricut creations this weekend.   Here's another Mother's Day card in the shop...

Ha!   That's not a mother's day card - it's a rhododendron!  I couldn't resist!   Seriously now - here's another card...

I hope you're all having a great week!   Thanks for visiting!
