Happy Mother's Day!
Today's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, is to make a Mother's Day Card. My dear mom passed away in December, 1999 after an on-going battle with cancer, so my mother's day card will go to someone else's mother! This card was inspired by a trio of cards featured in CardMaker magazine this month, (page 22) designed by Deanna Hutchsion. I liked her layout, and decided to alter it to work with an A-2 sized card.
I'm cleaning a closet in the office/craft room/drop it where it lands room. This room used to be a two car garage, and now we use it for everything, and I do mean everything. This is the main door into the house (even though we have a front door and beautiful foyer, and a sunporch door)! Anyway, I am cleaning a closet in this room today. I have laughed out loud more than once. Buried in the back corners of one of the shelves was an enire stack of old floppies. Not the A drive kind of little square hard floppy, but the old 5/5" square really truly 'floppy' floppies. There were all sorts of 'how to' books for things that were outdated 20 years ago! lol... However, I have to admit, it does feel SO great to purge!!! Funny thing is, I almost have to purge everything twice, as DH thinks we need to save it 'just in case', and pulls it out of the trash when I'm not looking. Sneaky as I am, I re-purge when HE isn't looking!
Back to work I go! Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you like the card!
Have a great week - Patti J.
