Mom's Garden

Hello Blogger Friends and Thank You So Much for stopping by!  Wow!  Has it really been over two weeks since I last posted???  The time is flying by, and here, I was going to dedicate every waking moment to creating cards this summer...

Actually, I ended up taking an unexpected red eye to Wisconsin on the 23rd.  My mom bought me a plane ticket so that I could attend my niece Kendall's baptism and birthday party.  Hence, the card for my mom.  She is awesome!  This card somewhat replicates a favorite area of her yard that she loves to plant new flowers in every spring.

I just recently ordered this lovely Magnolia stamp called Garden Tilda because she reminds me of mom, who can be found working on her yard on any given sunny day. 

While I was there, I visited with family and enjoyed the nature.  The weather was beautiful!  A little more humid than I'm used to, but I could actually stand in the sun without frying to a crisp.  LOL!  :D

Thank You so much for visiting my friends, your kind words are always so encouraging.  Have a great day and an even better tomorrow!
