Just hoping…

Sweet Laughter, Stampin' Up!Here’s a card I made for my mom.  Her birthday is Wednesday, but this isn’t really a birthday card.  The minute I saw the sentiment on the new “Sweet Laughter” stamp set, I knew I wanted it.  This sums up how I feel about my mom.  She totally rocks – as a wife, mom, grandma, great-grandma, professional woman and business owner and more.  She really is the ideal I strive for.  I realized one day as I read Proverbs 31 that that’s my mom.  She’s so amazing.

It took three stamp sets to make this card.  First the Sweet Laughter (available Jan 6).  The images on the set are nice, but I wanted to use one of the images from In this Together for the card.  I taped over the sentiment and martini glass (I can’t see Mom doing that!) and inked with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Because I was afraid a little ink had gotten on the glass, I used a blender pen to remove some ink.  Oops.  That, of course, left a shadow around her hand.  If this was really Mom, she’d have a Kindle or her iPhone or even a “real” book in her hand.  But I didn’t have stamps for those (and I can’t draw.  Mom can.  Yet another thing to look up to her for!) – so I added flowers from You’re Wonderful.  Everything was colored with Blendabilities, and I added the pearl necklace and a sentiment.

Remember, today is the very last day to order from the Holiday catalog, so grab those last minute products now!  January 6 is the beginning of the Occasions catalog sales period as well as Sale-a-bration!  Be sure you order at least $50 so you can get SAB freebies!  For every $50, you can select one SAB item – including the original 3-packs of Blendabilities!  (Skin tone and Color Lifter excluded)  If you place a $50 minimum order online, you’ll get a special gift from me at the end of the month you order.  (Workshop and club orders don’t count for the special gift, but you do get the Sale-a-bration freebies – as well as the cards you make at the workshop and club.)

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

    It is a card I will treasure always. Every mother should have a daughter like you – wise and kind, beautiful – inside and out – loving, compassionate and generous, always thankful, incredibly talented – and CRAFTY!! Many people have been able to “shine” as a reflection of something you have said or done. You make the world a better place each day! You certainly inspire me!!!!!
