Flowers for Mother’s Day

Stampin' Up!, Petite PetalsSo first – is it Mother’s Day or Mothers’ Day?  Everything I’ve seen is Mother’s Day, but it’s the day of more than one mother.  I’ll have to consult Grammar Girl.

Here’s a quick card I made tonight.  I bought the Hexagon Hive thinlits die, but just haven’t been able to incorporate it into anything.  So I decided to make a trellis with it, using the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack.  Then I stamped and punched lots of Petite Petals and layered them over a few leaves from Secret Garden.  I added some Crushed Curry Dazzling Details to the centers of the flowers.  What?  Yes, I do know we don’t have Crushed Curry Dazzling Details.  But you can make it by added some ink refill to the glitter glue.  Easy!  I like to mix a whole bottle, because then it’s always ready.

I spent the rest of the day working on photos for a Craft Project Central project for May, practicing, and cutting paper and making little pouches for the ladies (and, hopefully, a gentleman or three!) at Spring Arbor.  Tonight, Mike & I were watching Chopped, and I had a great idea.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have a kind of “Chopped” for crafters?  You’d get a basket of craft supplies and you have to make an amazing project using all of those supplies, plus extras in the Chopped Craft Room.

We kind of did that at a team meeting about a year ago.  It was so much fun!  Well, I thought it was fun.  You just need to relax and realize it’s not brain surgery or anything.  Nothing bad will happen if you have a horrible project (although all the end results were really great).

The first round could be tags, the second cards, and the third, maybe a 3-D item.  I’ll have to think about that one.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
