Mom's Day???


Ok, here is where I get up on my pedestal and do a little pounding on the heads of all those Hallmark people who created a day for Mother's.  Well didn't they realize a lot of women are NOT mothers - but are aunts/sisters/nieces - just women!  I proclaim this day, May 13, WOMEN'S DAY!  Be sure to send a card to a friend - a female friend! - and enjoy the day yourself.

I'm making up a few extra of these lovely orchids.  They are just awesome to color up.  It's a great image to purchase at Squigglefly shop.

The entire card is completed of leftover materials - the image was even given to me!  At one time I had stamped a bunch of smaller stamps and premounted them on black and have them stored in my album (by theme).  All the paper is years old but stored neatly and quietly and it's like having my own store at my finger tips and no gasoline involved in the trip!  Even the pearls are pifs from last year.  This is indeed a GREEN CARD for our Scrapbook Place Challenge.  Click that link and check the group's out!

Grab a free image at the shop and get into the challenge this weekend - anything for Mother's Day.  I hope I inspired you with the items I pulled from my stash to complete this!

Meanwhile have a great weekend!
