Your so sweet...

Well, I am surviving the midnight shifts-but they do take some getting used to! I am sure that the ceiling fan and the new blinds my hubby just put in the bedroom to keep out the sunlight, and to keep the room cooler will help tremendously!! Thank you Kevin!!
I have a card to share with you today-I needed a thank you card for my daughter to give a friend...
I added a sentiment from SU-but this set comes with lots of its own sentiments! Make sure to check out all the rest of the awesome DT's work on The Cutting Cafe's Blog tomorrow (Wednesday).
Thanks for stopping by...

P.s .Have you ever seen a sock monkey? Check out these -how cute are they?!!

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY & a fun story...

HI! I want to say Happy Mothers Day to all of you FABULOUS Mothers out there today! Enjoy your day with your Loved ones!!
This is my Mothers Day card for my WONDERFUL MOTHER!
I have used a file from THE CUTTING CAFE called BEAUTIFUL ROSE I colored in the Roses with Copics and added the pearls. I have also used a SU punch and stamp for the sentiment, a tiny little bow, and some doodling around the edges. I have made a stand on the back and the vase is the actual part that opens up to read my note to my Mom inside.
Something really neat to tell you-I got to meet Diane from Nellies Nest on Friday! How cool is that? My daughter and I had went to Gaylord to shop for my youngest daughters birthday presents, and we stopped off at Hobby Lobby as well, and we were asked if there were any other craft stores in town--and while talking for a minute to the lady who asked-we learned that it was Diane! I follow her blog-and she recognized me as soon as I said what town I was from! So nice to meet you Diane, sorry I was so quite--I was in total shock!!

Hi all! Hope your week is going great so far! Mine is, and tomorrow I am going to an all day conference for library board trustees. I am sure to learn lots!
I have had time to make a couple of cards in the last few days... The first one is for my Daughter Brittany-she has been in college now for several years-and I am so proud to say she is Graduating on Saturday!! Whooohoo!! This image is from Squigglefly and is called Graduation Celebration by artist Cheryl Alger.
This second one is for my niece's Birthday. This image is also available at Squigglefly and is just one that is included in a set of 9! The set is called Garden Party and is by artist Diana Garrison.

Well, I am off to start dinner and run to the store for a new shelving unit--I am determined to get more organized! BYE...
