Mother's Day

Mother's Day is this weekend -- don't you just ((LOVE)) Mother's Day?! :) Of course my card will be late -- just couldn't find stamping time until this morning. I had a different idea in mind, but didn't have all the supplies I needed so I will have to lock that up in the idea bin (aka my brain!) and use it another time. I know this set is retired (as was my last post - sheesh), but I LOVE the sketches sets. They are so soft & warm and this was the first one out & still one of my most loved! I know many demo's sell off their *retired* sets, but I usually can't. I have some I can part with, but many of them will be used over & over again. When I have the time, I love to watercolor. Our wonder crayons are awesome for this. Add an aqua painter to the mix & you're good to go! No little jars of water to potentially spill, which is why I almost always grab that nifty aqua painter!! Love it. Also found a little chipboard 'm' that I pressed into Old Olive craft ink & covered with clear embossing powder. It's got a little bit of everything here ( perhaps a bit too busy?!?!) but that's the life of a mom! BUSY. There's buttons to sew on here & there, ribbon & laces to tie, coloring together (or scrubbing it off the wall {LOL}).... lots of memories! To all the mom's out there -- have a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY -- celebrating .... YOU! :)
