Mail Out Monday


Happy Monday everyone!! I hope all the mommies had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!! I for one have been crazy busy. I am not sure if you guys remember but my MIL has a flower shop that is run by the family and I have been making arrangements all weekend long. That is one of the downsides of having a flower shop.. holidays make you the money. But honestly I didn't mind since I love flower arranging almost as much as stamping. It's so relaxing a mist the chaos. I also didn't post much during last week because I didn't have the charger for my camera and the weather has been so BAD that it made it impossible to go get it. On Thursday we even had golf size hail which was really scary. However the weather didn't stop me from stamping. I got a few cards done to share with you guys. My mother is going to Canada on vacation this week so I am letting her borrow my camera. But rest a sure that I have all my cards lined up and downloaded for this week. BTW I know I have a lot of wonderful Canadian friends and readers and I was wondering what must see places that my parents should visit. They are going to go to Ottawa, Toronto, Quebec and Montreal. I told my parents about all the wonderful Canadian friends I have made through my blog and SCS and they got even more excited about the trip. I told her that if Canada is anywhere as nice as the people they were in for a HUGE treat!!

Ok..enough of the rambling lets get to today's card.
This card was inspired by the CPS blog site which offers tons of wonderful and creative card sketches. The adorable stamp used is from High Hopes. They have the cutest images and their stamps are deep etched rubber. They are of wonderful quality. The sentiment is from Green Grass. I colored the "stinkin" cute skunk with my prismas and added some stickles for added bling. The card stock is SU Celery, Olive, Marigold, Rose, Banana, and WW. The DP is from Basic Grey. The ribbon is from May Arts. The faux eyelets were a wonderful idea I got from the AMAZING Jen del Muro. She is a genius in coming up with these creative tips. To finish the card I did some fauxAwww...its so nice to be back to blogging. I have missed you guys... hugz Ana

Hey there! I love this - the colors and lo rock! You know, I went to their (High Hopes) site a couple of times, back when you did that adorable rabbit in a wheelbarrow card, and didn't find much of anything I liked. And now you have THIS adorable stamp! I'll have to check 'em over again! LOL :) Hope you had a wonderful Mommy's Day!
