hello...

A ginormous Happy Birthday to my Momma:)

For those that have been following me a while may remember this...my Mom, for some reason, hates being called Momma...odd because I love it when my kidlets call ME that....anywho's, luckily she isn't a regular visitor of my blog {watch her pop in today...of course!}...

I whipped this together for her giftie...

I bought a bunch of these kraft bags for my 'big business plans' that have really kind of fizzled out...the craft show business isn't too lucrative for card makers...


In that bag are several Starbucks Gift Cards...I manage to keep her supplied through the various occasions...although I guess she has to replenish her stash in the summer since it is along time in between Mother's Day and Christmas, oh yes, Grandparents Day:)  She is a daily customer of Starbucks with her "drip coffee" order...brings her own mug and saves like $0.03 a cup?  So I threw in a new Starbucks mug too:)

I was inspired by Tiff's sketch:



I'm a first timer at the Lawnscaping Challenges...but I inked up my new Lunar Lights set {LOVE it!}...


Let's see, all the patterned paper is Jillibean...I actually first stamped the Lunar Light image on the backside of the Jillibean polka dot paper...fussy cut it out and then stamped the image again on the polka dot side of the paper...that way the 'krafts' matched, kwim?  The alpha are T $ Spot, I think:) and holy moly, I'm out of my regular white thread for my machine so I used this extra thick stuff and boy oh boy, my machine was NOT diggin' it...felt like I should have been wearing protective eye wear because it was making such a racket...scared the needle was going to 'PING'...luckily it didn't...I love the dramatic look of that bold white thread though...

I'm also linking this to the Moxie Fab World Challenge:



The Paper Piecing Challenge!

My previous entry is a card with heavy paper piecing...I decided to show how paper piecing can make a subtle impact...

Okay, that's it for me today...this week is going to be a FUN one...there is going to be an EAD Designs surprise on Tuesday...so watch for it:)
