Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Saturday!  
Happy Cinco de Mayo!  
Happy Birthday to my DH! 
For my Fredericktown Missouri readers, Happy Azalea Festival Weekend!

Last week, SCS featured a tutorial on using Goosebumps.  If you've never tried this, it's a fun product to experiment with.  A bit messy for me to use everyday, but I can see it being a favorite for 'those special projects'.  Well, my dear friend, Shirley, called and said, "We need to try this tutorial", so she hopped in her car, brought her Goosebumps, and we played and played!  Here is a card that I made to send my Chemo lady...


Shirley brought the stamps, and I think they were all Inkadinkado.  I used the cute green gingham cardstock from A Muse to stamp on.  You may have to enlarge the photo to see the checks. 
The inks are all Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I think my lady will like it!  I'm entering this in the Monday - Greeting Card Challenge at Outlawz (Mother's Day Card, or For a Girl Card with sentiment on front).

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, so far!

Don't forget - I still have BLOG CANDY!!!!
Drawing will be sometime tomorrow, after church, and before bedtime...lol.
Be sure to go and leave a comment to win :)

Hugs and smiles,
Off to take my DH for his mile high birthday pie!!!

Patti, this is gorgeous. I am doing something today with blues and greens and I love the color combo. Your white butterflies just shine.

What beautiful colors! Lovely card Patti.

I am so excited that you tried this technique. Your card turned out beautiful!
To make it less messy I took the spray nozzle off and dabbed my sponge directly to the bottle opening. That way you only have to clean the stamp, not the nozzle as well.
Hugs and smiles

Hey Patti! I love your pretty butterfly card. I bought some Goosebumps a few weeks ago and it's so much fun to play with. I keep a damp towel and stamp scrubber in a plastic food saver container beside me for quick and easy cleanup. I just ordered the shimmer and matte. Can't wait to see what they do! :)
