Mother’s Day ’08

May 10th, 2008

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.  This evening we celebrated both Mother’s Day and my Dad’s birthday with my parents by going to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.  Beef!  Yumm! 

Thought I’d stop by before bed to share the card I made my Mom for Mother’s Day.  I got Spring Solitude not too long ago and wanted to use it.  When I saw Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge I thought it would be perfect!  The large flowers in this stamp set reminded me of this retired SU designer paper, so I pulled it out.  Funny thing is – I ended up not even using that stamp from the set.  Oh well.  Once I had my stamp set, the sketch, and my paper this card came together fairly quickly. I love this sketch (thanks Beate!) so I’m sure I’ll be using it again!

I’m still using my Marvy punches for ovals and I still love them.  I do have Nestabilities in rectangles, but for some reason I don’t use them as often as I should.  And I still have no desire to replace my oval punches with oval nesties – I know many of you think I’m crazy – maybe I’m just resistant to change?  It just seems so much easier to reach for a punch than to pull out a set of nesties (which I do not yet have stored properly), line it up and run it through the Cuttlebug.  Hmmm…maybe I’m just lazy! LOL!

    Jami – I am right there with ya’ on the whole punch issue. It just seems easier to pull out that punch than do the cuttlebug thing. Don’t get me wrong – I use my CB all the time for embossing, but cutting not so much… I feel like I am missing the boat or something because everyone is always talking about the nesties, but I still like it this way.

    Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing all your wonderful stuff!

    Beautiful card with that set!! I agree on the punches…….I have the large rectangle nesties…………..but otherwise I always use my punches (less steps and time means more STAMPING) LOL.
