Nostalgia, News, and Resolutions Update

I try to keep my posts light, but I wanted to take a moment to remember my mom today. It would have been her 62nd birthday today.  I'm awful at remembering birthday's (unless it's my own LOL!), but it was pretty easy to remember Mom's cause it's so close to the 4th.  I like to think she'd be pretty tickled with this blog and the crafty stuff I post here.  She was my first art teacher and so today's card is to celebrate her and all she did for me to get me to where I am today. :)
My would appreciate that this card is another 10 minute card. She was a last minute kinda gal too. LOL!  (Probably where I get it from!)  I think the flower is Hero Arts stamped with red ink on a pink card base.  The sentiment is Technique Tuesday and the paper strip is from Amy Butler (yup, yet another one).

Now for the DT news!!! 
I'm one of the newest members of Cooking It Up With Katie!  I'm wicked excited to join the team. :)  My first official post will be on Wednesday, so stay tuned!

Ooo and keep tuning in because there's some more design news coming in the not too distant future.  Oh-muh-gosh, don't forget to come by tomorrow for the SSDS challenge.  We're up and running again!

Resolutions Update:  I'm happy to say that I have accomplished 1, 2, 5, and 9 already!!!!  I haven't done squat about number 7 though. :(

I tossed this post in the mix at:
Hodgepodge Friday
Fingerprints on the Fridge

I'm exhausted just reading this post today! 


  1. Very cute card...and what a sweet tribute to your mom. Congrats on the new design team!

  2. Yr mom was way too young when she passed on and I know how much you must miss her. The card you made in her honour is gorgeous.
    Happy Anniversary, a couple of days early, btw. It's a good thing you mom was there to see you get married, eh?

  3. I like your card, love the color on color, what a great look.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
