Where does the time go????

My sincerest apologies for my lengthy absence from the blog world. My life has been so hectic these last couple of months. First of all, I am working tons of overtime; second of all, Christmas shopping takes up what little time I have left and third of all....well, third of all, I just need some chill time now and then.

However, I am back to the cardmaking world as I took off a couple of days vacation to try to catch my breath. Wouldn't you know it, it rained and rained and rained today but, that's OK - it gave me a chance to get some inside stuff done.

I made this first card for my mom's 85th Birthday which was today - Happy Birthday, Mom! The family took her and some of her friends out for Sunday brunch a couple of weeks ago so today was kind of anti-climatic for her but a day filled with lots of good wishes from friends and family. The flower paper is from a company called "Scrapbour", matched with some yellow polka-dotted paper from Bazill. Lace and ribbon is from my overstuffed ribbon drawer, rub-ons are Melissa Frances and the rhinestone swirl is Making Memories.

This second card is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary and is made with paper from "The Paper Company". The chipboard frame is "Making Memories", rub-ons are Melissa Frances and the gold corners are peel and stick. All flowers are from Beatriz Jennings' etsy shop at .

I hope we can talk again sooner than later. Rain, rain go away and enjoy your weekend.

The card for your Mom is a treasure in itself! I am sure it will occupy a very special place in her heart as well in her home. Good job daughter!
