Embrace Life

This is the card that we sent off to Ian's Mom for Mother's Day. I waited and waited for my husband to do something as I figured she needed more than a phone call. He didn't so I made this card, got him to sign it and put it in Tuesday's mail so it will be late but the thought by me is there.

Our going away party for our friend's on Saturday was great. We got home at 3:30 am - I'm not used to late nights like that anymore. I finished my 5th scrapbooking design class last night. I am really enjoying scrapping now. I never thought I would say that. I am even going on a scrapbook weekend at the end of May with my girlfriend, Sabrina. I hope to do up the rest of my wedding album and get a start on our vacation album and Xmas album.

I had some supplies left over from the Ginger Blossoms project from April's stamp club on my desk so I used the remaining papers on this layout plus I had the flowers watercolored from that night when I showed the girls how to use an aquabrush. (The ginger blossoms project will be posted shortly as I have photographed it now)

Stamps: Embrace Life
Paper: river rock, ruby red, groovy guava, whisper white
Patterned paper: ginger blossoms
Ink: river rock, ruby red, groovy guava and cameo coral refills to watercolor, palette noir

Pretty card. I still have some of this paper and I never use it anymore. I need to bust it out again.
