Yard sale!!!

Who knew that preparing for a yard sale was so much work. I have not vacated the crafting world but I have 1 more week left to be completely ready.  What ever is left it is all being donated!!  We have been lucky enough that my husbands niece and fiancée were able to help this week!  So far I have 3 full trailer loads going to yard sale land.....lol

That is where I have been for the last few weeks. I am so happy that it is almost over!  I look forward to returning with loads of cards, projects and LOs on the proverbial "TO DO" list.  ...lol. :)
Cheers to all :)


Happy Mother's Day

                      After having some technical difficulties I am trying to take photos in natural light!  It's really a simple concept however when I finish work I am so excited that its done I just want to post.  Please let me know about clarity and if they are better or not so much.....I can't change what I don't know about :). 

On a wonderful note, today is Mother's Day!  We helped my brother out last night so his baby boy Jace could be born!  He was a whopping 9lbs 3oz.  He called me from the delivery room and I could hear him crying it was so wonderful to hear him ( he was born late last night so we didn't get to see him). 

This card was inspired by a calming feeling the stamps gave me.  The card is layered with Recollections Demask paper.  I then chose Stampin up pink Cardstock.  I used white cardstock for the top layer; then used Tim Holtz ink with a dauber to blend and soften the ink.  The stamping up stamps come from the set Up In the Air.  I used glue arts glue pen and flock to color the flowers and leaves.  The sentiment came from teeny tiny wishes from Stampin up.  I used staz on ink because when I started the card I was not sure what I would do with the flowers.
