Mom Card

Here is a little Mother's Day card I made.
I fell in love with this paper when I first saw it.
I bought it a while ago before my self imposed hold on paper purchases.
Yesterday when I was at Joanns I saw another pad by the same designer and I almost bought it because the paper is gorgeous and has a lot of butterflies. It would be perfect for creating spring projects.
AND it was on sale.
Man was it tempting.
I do not have anything else like it so I may just give myself permission to just get one more pad.
I know. I know. My name is D- and I have an addiction.

I hope to get some crafting time in this weekend. It was supposed to rain but now they are saying we will get to 77-80 degrees today and the rain won't arrive until Sunday evening.
This weather is crazy for our area and it is getting real hard to keep the attention of the kiddos at school.
Have a super weekend!

  2. Such pretty paper and a beautiful mothers day card :)I completely understand your paper addiction as I too continually tell myself I don't need any more paper or ribbon for that matter. The problem is standing in the store, coming up with all the amazing projects you will make with it, so you buy it with the best of intentions...then you get home and use something else LOL
