Happy Mother's Day!!!

Well, I am not a mom, but I have a mom! Hi mom! Hope you are having a good day! I couldn't post this card until today because I didn't want my mom to see it before today. It was for a color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge was that you could only use pink. Of course, you could use white, black, or craft along with it. It was a challenge, but of course with my obsession with flowers I used it as an opportunity to pull out some flower sets that don't see the light of day too often.

I am sitting in my craft room today craftin' away. Matt went to visit his family in Omaha for the weekend and I stayed home. I had class on Friday night and Saturday afternoon so I couldn't go with him. He got to actually spend mother's day with his mom today so I am sure she enjoyed that. As you may have noticed I haven't done any stamping since last weekend. I had a big paper that took all of my attention this week. By the end of the week I was pretty crabby and ready to get in the stamp room.

I have been hemming and hawing over getting these new Prismacolor markers. They look SO nice when stampers use them on their cards. The give such a complete and seamless rich look. I am a very bad girl and ordered them online today! Naughty! I went to Michael's to compare with the online art store prices and they seemed much cheaper online, even with a Micheal's coupon which was not in the paper today :(

So, I caved in and ordered them online. I hope I like them and feel they are worth the splurge. I should be saving my pennies for the the new SU catalog comes out. I am getting excited to be able to pre-order some of the new toys! I have seen the colors and they are totally beautiful, trendy, and fun! I am also excited about the new bling they are coming out with! I haven't been able to find any good bling here in my hometown!

Paper: pretty in pink, regal rose, whisper white
Ink: pretty in pink, regal rose
Accessories: SU pale pastel buttons, round tab punch, glue dots
Stamps: heartfelt thanks, all year cheer
