Just Wanted to Wish You...

A very happy Mother's Day! I know I'm a day early, but considering I'm not posting/commenting/doing anything (or so it seems) online, I wanted to 'strike while the iron was hot.' DH is having some (more) health issues following three medical procedures. So you can see where my heart and duty lies. When I have a few minutes between caregiving stuff, I stop and take a peek at your blogs, but don't have the time to comment very often. For that I apologize. It has taken me two days to make this rather CAS, and might I add, cute card. Plus one day to take the photo and write up a quick post. *sigh* And because we've got company here (they're in Madison at the moment, hence time to post) to help our granddaughter Jessica celebrate her graduation from Law School, there's more for me to do. We watched the ceremony live on YouTube. How nice to live in this age of technology! This is the "my so funny," granddaughter. When did she grow up???!!

Our Jessica. Smart just like her grandma, lol!!

I made a card for CAS on Friday, where we're to use a cute stamp. Here's my cute little bunny:


I know right?! It's a Clearly Whimsy stamp set, and I used two MFT wonky rectangle dies. A little Copic coloring and done. The polka dotted vellum is a scrap from Darnell that I snatched up at the Lake House. It added dimension without too much fuss. That image just makes me want to say, "Awww!!" 

And don't forget to play along with me and the rest of my teamies at the current Twofer Challenge. You can find all the details here

As always...

Aww is right! That is just darling, Bev! Your Jessica is so lovely - congratulations to her! My nephew starts law school in Madison this fall. I'm still the one-handed typist, but I wanted to feel normal today and say hi to my friends. Do not feel the need to respond back, I know you are there.

Have been having trouble keeping up with commenting myself and today I have a YKW, sunny and beautiful outside no rain in sight I am completely flummoxed!!
