For Mother

I made these two Mother's Day cards for at a friend's request, and I'm glad to report she was happy with them.
This is the second or third time I used the triple-stamping technique.  I think it's easy to do, and I love the results!

A happy belated Mother's Day to you, and hope your day was a great one!

Teacup for Linda

As you know I love participating in Stephanie's Teacup Exchange Swaps; but today I'm sharing a very super late teacup swap post.
I have been going through a difficult time, but it's looking like things are looking up.  I will share more on this on a later post.

My swap teacup partner I swap with is Linda at Lady Linda.  

Lady Linda loves pinks, floral patterns and antiques.
I was lucky enough to find the perfect and unique teacup for Linda at this local antique store.  It's very old and dainty, and I'm so happy to know Linda loved it!

It was fun collecting things for Linda in mind.  I included her black tea and chocolate!  Gardening gloves and seed packets so she can play in her garden.  Also a fat quarter pack so that she can create a pretty quilt in her spare time!

Thank you Linda for your understanding and your beautifully written letter.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Stephanie for coordinating such a wonderful party!  I really appreciated her time and effort of bringing us together!  

A heartfelt thank you to my lovely ladies who always take time to leave me comments that make my day!

Pink Flowers & Derby Fascinator

A friend on mine asked me if I could make her 2 Mother's Day cards for her; and this is what I came up with!  I used different shades of pink!  I'm just loving this new-stamp-set-to-me called Mixed Bunch by Stampin' Up!
She's sending one to her lovely Mom and one to her dear Aunt!

Today, two of my girlfriends and I are going to Turf Paradise to watch the Kentucky Derby for the first time, and we are dressing up!!!  This is my fascinator which I'll be wearing with this simple black & white polka dot dress.
We're so excited!

Have a great weekend!
