Upsy Daisy 2!

Ever taken an old card design of your own and re-did it in some new colors? Well, this is one of those cards! It's fun because you can do it in so many color combinations and it takes on a different feel. I was going for a Summery, fresh and fun look!

Hope you enjoy the colors and brightness of the card with an oldie but goodie stamp set called "Upsy Daisy." GREAT set and easy to use!

Here's a great pack of paper called "Beyond the Garden", available in the Summer Mini through August 31st!

Stampin'Up items used:
Whisper White, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point cardstock, "Beyond the Garden" DSP, Scallop Trim Border punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Basic Black, Pacific Point and Craft Whisper White ink, and the White Gel Signo pen.

Thinking of You.....

On Mother's Day!

I am so blessed to have my Mother still with me. I can't imagine the day she won't be.....hoping that day never comes!
When I've had a bad day, or week, or month....I always know who I can call! She will listen and sometimes, if I'm ready to listen, will have some good advice to my dilemma, hardship or heartache. No matter what....she's always been there. She's ready to jump at a moments notice, no matter how inconvenient it might be for her, to be there for her children....and grandchildren.
She's my Mom.....and my friend.
Like friends, we can have disagreements, but they always are resolved and come back to the love and appreciation we have for each other. Forgiveness is always matter what.
It's a wonderful Mother to have such as this.
I am truly blessed with a great Mom....and Dad and Sisters.
My family isn't perfect......but it's an awesome one!! :-)

Make sure to tell your Moms how much they are loved and appreciated.....and try not to ever hold grudges. Just forgive, let go of it.....and go on. Focus on what's important in this life. We have a short time here on this earth.....lets enjoy our families while we have them with us!

Families come in many shapes and sizes.....Step-Mother's, Mother-in-Laws, God-Mothers, even ex Mother-in Laws.....many women may have crossed your path through your life and hold an important place in your heart. Don't forget to tell them this Sunday! :-)

This is my 'Mother's Day' card this year.....always late, but much time put into them! :-)
I used a vase of flowers found in a new set from the Summer Mini called 'On the Grow'. Adorable set!

Stampin' Up! supplies used:
Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie cardstock, Stampin' Write markers in Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin  Pie, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, 'On the Grow' stamp set and Word Window punch.

Punch Owl Thanks!

Owls are so cute, dont you think?

I enjoyed piecing this owl together with the help of the Owl punch by Stampin' Up! It punches out every piece you need to complete the adorable little critter. Use solid cardstock, printed cardstock....even glitter cardstock! You'll have a great time creating all colors and styles of owls.

Do I have to mention how cute the pom pom 'ribbon' is! I am sure hoping to see it available in the new 2011-2012 catalog! I'll keep you all posted on that.

In the meantime......have fun creating!! :-)

Owl Punch:

Stampin' Up! supplies:
Play Date Designer Series Paper, Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red cardstock, Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon, Tempting Turquoise 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Hemp twine, Corderoy buttons, Two-Step Owl punch, Modern Label punch, Little Leaves Sizzlit die and Elegant Lines embossing folder.
