My mother is a quilter, a very good quilter.  She has tried over the years to make me see the light and come to the fat quarter side of things, but I have never had the patience for this craft.  I cross stitch (of which it may take years to finish a project, if it does get finished...) but a quilt is a big investment.  I was thinking about her this week( since I forgot to call her this last weekend) and had seen a card similar to this(actually think it was on Nicole's blog) and knew I had to make one to send to her.

Top of the morning

I finally got a chance to stamp!  I had seen a card similar to this and just had to try it!  Easy peasy.  My kinda card.  We're heading out to visit the area where we are supposed to be moving to, and as an added bonus...going to see Jeff Dunham in concert!!

Slithering your way

I have a great Secret Sister this round, who has sent me some really cute images!  I got this one in the mail this week and had to use it.  Again, bittersweet paper, the image and the hearts are from my SS.  This is one of those quick and easy cards.  Love when they go together in under 10 minutes.  I'm so glad that Valentine's day is almost over.  I'm ready for some different colors.  : )

Well, I almost made it a whole week posting.. and then fell of the planet for a week.  Got to go to the mall crawling last week with my girls and a great friend. We stopped at Archivers and actually restrained ourselves!  Then this last weekend the girls and I went to an incredible concert, Winter Jam.  I had forgotten how loud girls can scream when a boy band comes on stage...Hawk Nelson.  I, of course, was waiting patiently for Toby Mac to hit the stage.  He put on an awesome show! The girls got all the guys in Hawk Nelson to sign their t-shirts and got Brandon Heaths autograph.  Anywho, I did get to stamp a few times this week, so posts today and tomorrow.  This girl has been sitting on my desk for the past 3 weeks, colored and ready to find a card to go on.  I had finally gotten the bittersweet (basic grey) paper in the mail and wanted to try it out. I'm kinda strange about paper pads, I make myself use the patterns I like the least first, to savor the ones I like the best, last.  I wonder if there is a name for that
