Remembering

Hi everyone. I had an interesting Mother's Day today. One of the things I noticed is that I really need to get back to the gym!!!!

I have a closing tomorrow and it is a really neat widow who is selling the home she shared with her late husband. I have no idea how she is coping with everything, but she is. I was fortuante enough to win a free stamp set from Gina and Stamp TV. Can you even believe I had it in my hot little hands on Friday. It was such perfect timing as I got Not Forgotten and it is I think the perfect stamp set!

I have also combined a few challenges again LOL! I used the newest Card Positioning Systems sketch #115 and the My Time to Inspire MTTI01 Here is my take Isn't that fun! I loved how it all turned out. I used the Papertrey Ink dsp Black & White Basics dsp. Lauren showed how you can use copics to color in the flowers and although I don't have copics, I LOVED the look. I used my SU markers to make this happen. It looks great, but it really took some time to do. Okay not a ton of time, but those little leaves seemed to take forever LOL!

She is a scrapbooker, so I am sure she will like this. I have another card to finish up tonight, but it will not go up until tomorrow.

It's a good life!
