Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all especially MY MOM!! I know I don't see you everyday and don't call as often as I can...will do better in that department. So while I was at a crop for mom crafters (and some young daughters came to craft with them - how sweet to witness!), I created a card for my mom...

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, Spellbinders® Paper Arts and JustRite PaperCraft for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

This shaped card came together fairly quick by using just one etched die set (Diamond Effect - retired). The pink die cut was kinda of boring so I embossed it with Rose TableCloth Embossing Folder by Tammy Tutterow. Stamped a sentiment from Enjoy the Day Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamp Set by JustRite PaperCraft. Adhered everything with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and added a May Arts Ribbon bow to finish. A sweet card to give as a Mother's Day or a birthday card.

Yesterday I attended the Mom's A Scrapping crop event and surprisingly got a lot done! I usually (maybe) complete ONE PROJECT because I'm talking or eating too much! LOL!! Made a couple of new friends and got to see friends who were first timers at my friend, Kristin's event :) Isn't this front so SPRING?! Love the light box touch, Kristin! LOL!!

View from my table...fellow mom crafters at work. LOVE my Spellbinders® Platinum™ 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine!! SO MUCH easier to bring - I used to bring my "work horse" and bigger Platinum™ Machine! LOL!

Since this was a no frill crop, lunch was on your own. I purchased this ADORABLE strawberry lunch box (bento box) from my local Japanese supermarket and BONUS: on sale for $2.50!!! I grabbed it while my husband rolled his eyes until he heard the price - HA! Leftovers from last night's dinner with salmon flakes on top of the rice.

These sweet ladies I've known from other events and was their first time at this one. LOVE unexpected surprises! Great to see them!

Edit to add my Mother's Day Lunch I had with both boys in town at Yu's Restaurant :) VERY PROUD of these two young is almost done and the other is about to transfer into DePaul University in Chicago IL. #GoDemons

Hope you have a FABULOUS DAY!! As always THANK YOU for taking time to visit me on the blog :)
