Promises.....

I hope that you ladies all had a nice Mother's Day, and that you gents spoiled your mom's rotten on Sunday!




I found a few minutes today to craft!
I was trying to find a way to use ALL the patterns in one color of Laurie's beautiful new paper pack at Doodle Pantry.


Then I saw a beautiful card HERE of Kim Schofield's on SCS that I loved!
I used her basic layout, and here's what I created.
I think this color is simply gorgeous, and that it's even prettier against the stark white and black mats.
There are 3 patterns of FIVE different colors in this pack for $2.00. TWO dollars!!! Wowzers! You can check out the paper here!

I also used one of the sentiments from the Noah's Ark pack, which is also a new release.

The darling butterfly is from The Craft's Meow, from the set "Friend of Mine", and can be found here.

There is still lots of time to join in the challenge at the Doodle Pantry Blog, as well! You just need to use a Doodle Pantry Image! If you don't have any, you can check out the freebies!


Am entering this card at Flutter by Wednesdays: Open challenge (include butterfly, angel, or fairy)



My Mother's Day was very nice. We stayed home - DD and Rosie, the grand-doggie were here for the weekend. Saturday was the Azalea Festival in a nearby town, so we went to a fund-raiser breakfast, and DD joined us there after she ran the 5K affiliated with the festival. She placed first in her division! It was her first 'first', so she was pleased, and we were proud. It poured down rain (are you surprised?), and was very chilly for the race. Yesterday, however, the sun blessed us with her presence, and we BBQ's some delish pork steaks! Yummmm......





DD brought some beautiful hanging baskets and a laugh out loud card...on the front was a mixer dripping with chocolate batter. It said, "Good moms let their kids lick the beaters." The inside sentiment said "Great moms turn the mixer off first." Tee hee..... she thanked me for always turning the beaters off! DS sent an amazing vase of fresh flowers with a note that nearly made me cry! I have the best grown children in the world!!!


Well, have a great week! Hopefully, I'll be back in a day or two with something that will make you smile!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Patti J.
