To Mother

Hi, everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start.

Happy 4th Anniversary, Paper Smooches!
Paper Smooches Blog
Before I get to today's card, I'd like to give a shout out to Kim and her amazing Paper Smooches team. Paper Smooches is celebrating its 4th Anniversary.

Not only is Kim an amazingly talented artist, but her customer service is second to none! I'm actually waiting for a PS order to arrive... and I can hardly wait! But, thanks to Kim, I won't be waiting long.

To Mother

In Operation Write Home world, the calendar reads Easter and Mother's Day, with upcoming deadlines of February 28 and March 31, respectively. So, I have a mom card to share today. 

How appropriate that today's card features PS stamped images, along with Stampin' Up!, Ranger, Really Reasonable Ribbon, American Crafts, Bazzil, and Martha Stewart products.

American Crafts peachy keen; Bazzil basics paper (cream); Stampin' Up! early espresso
Paper Smooches crystal clear and botannicals 2 stamps
SU postcard background, postage collection, festival of trees, and 2000 wreath of roses stamps
SU postage stamp punch; Martha Stewart butterfly punch
various Distress Inks, including bundled sage and Victorian velvet
Really Reasonable Ribbon lace and stash heart-shaped gems
Zig chocolate writer-marker; Ranger distress and blending tools
adhesives: Scotch ATG and Glue Dots microdots
Wow! That's quite a list of supplies! Reminds me of hubby looking around the menopause room and commenting on how much stuff I have in here. LOL -- if he only knew.  :)

The postcard background stamp could probably be trimmed and sent as an actual postcard. However, I made this as a card for an OWH hero to send to a mom. So, I chose to trim down the card size just a tad and make it a traditional card to allow for more writing space.

Planning on entering the card above in the following challenges. Would also like to enter in the current Shopping Our Stash love challenge. But, even though butterflies, flowers, and hearts are my way of sending love to a mom, I just don't feel right linking it up there.

Parting Thoughts

Gotta work on more mom cards. Hope to have another card or two to post in the next couple of days.

February Challenge
Feb. 1 - Feb. 21
We have a new challenge going on at Words 2 Scrap By. This month's challenge to do something different draws its inspiration from a few lines from the Bill Murray Groundhog Day movie. Hope you will be able to play along.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
