Sunday Stamping #8 Mother's Day
No stamping or card making for me today. Went to my favorite breakfast place this morning with my Mother in law, hubs and girls. Then, I went to the mall with my girls and hubby. We walked around, stopped at See's Candy and bought $20 worth of chocolate to devour later and decided to leave right after because it was too peopley there. When we arrived home we did laundry and watched our DVR'd TV. It was a super day with no real purpose but to do whatever. No cards, no flowers just love from my family doing the things we like to do when we don't really have to do anything. So relaxing I fell asleep on the couch and am only now getting to my blog.
Happy Mother's Day! I hope all Moms had a wonderful day!!!
I have been MIA for awhile on my blog and feel like I have some 'splaining to do...I got a full time job. I haven't worked a full time job in eighteen years. When I had my daughter (she's 18 now) I went to part time work so I could take care of her, then to full time stay at home mom when I had my second daughter. We never wanted anyone else taking care of our kids, and like so many other parents out there, we decided I would only work part time if needed while we raised our kids.
I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to be there for my children when they needed me most. I have to say that it was and always has been a conscious choice. Life is full of choices and we chose to have two wonderful children with a Mom who could stay home to raise them.
I know what it's like to be left to daycare, preschools, babysitters and family members while growing up and I never wanted that for my own children. I have great respect and honor for my own Mother and all she sacrifi…
Today I'm featuring a stamp set that is really unique to the stamping industry. It allows you the opportunity to create a variety of backgrounds by using different stamp colors. The possibilities are endless in what you can create given your available library of color!
They have a video that explains how to use their stamps far better than I ever could. Here it is:
Concord and 9th is a stamping company that is fairly new to me. I'm not ashamed to say I have already begun collecting their wares. They not only have the flower turnabout stamp, which is what I used to make my card but several other stamps, one of which I purchased twice due to my lack of patience. The triangle turnabout stamp was sold out at one time. When I finally purchased it, I managed to add two to my cart.
I'd like to make my mistake your advantage by sending one of my followers this amazing background stamp! All I ask is that you follow my blog and post your favorite color in the comment section b…
That is the question...I decided, after a futile attempt to watercolor this card that it just wasn't worth it. So, the answer is not to watercolor. Copic Markers to the rescue!
Before we get into my card, I want to give a big THANK YOU to Patricia Allison. She is the winner of the triangle turnabout stamp! Patricia is also a follower of my Facebook page and always has the kindest words to say about my work. I appreciate her so much, especially since she was the only one who took the time to comment on my post. I am so happy to send her some crafty goodies in the mail!
One of the great things about social media is that it allows me to share my passion for card making along with meeting people who share in my passion. The unfortunate part of social media is that it is selective on the audience my work reaches on the interwebz. Honestly, it's frustrating to say the least. I have several followers to my Instagram and Facebook page but because I don't pay for advertising (I h…
