PCC #145

Hi Everyone!

It's been pretty busy around here. Especially with my daughter being home. 

I bought a few IRIS photo storage boxes last week. I wanted them for my Project type cards. I can't believe I filled 2 boxes!

The clear ones hold the cards. They still need labeled. The rainbow one will hold embellishments by color. I have them in a tool drawer thing now and I rarely use anything in it. I'm hoping this new system will get me using more.

This week's PaperCrafters Corner challenge is just adorable. It reminded me of my daughter when she was little.

I chose to use the colors of the painting as inspiration for my card. 

I made it a birthday card to send to my sister-in-law. I used the Stippled Blossom set from Stampin Up and Clearsnap inks.

One other thing I started this week is a new afghan.

It's done according to the pattern but I want it longer so I'm adding another repeat. It's from Leisure Arts Afghans on the Double. Using 2 strands of yarn make it a quick afghan. :)

That's it for me this week. I need to fill up those rainbow boxes on this rainy Saturday. Have a GREAT week!

PCC #143 Mother's Day

Hi Everyone!

This week's PaperCrafters Corner challenge is all about Mother's Day.

I wasn't going to make a card this week because it's about Mother's Day. My mom passed away almost 13 years ago. My mother in law, 24 years ago.  I don't have a mom to give it to. But I do have family members that still have their mommas. And, I can still wish my mom a Happy Mother's Day.

This card is inspired by the magazine cover but also by my Mom.

She would have loved this card. Red roses were her favorite. So Happy Mother's Day Mom! I miss you!

I'll be picking up one of my Mother's Day gifts tomorrow. My daughter. She's done with school and coming home!
