Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all my family, friends and blogger friends. I have had a wonderful day. I love being with my boys all day. They make my life complete and I'm so thankful to be their Mama. As usual, I had to beg them to take pictures but even though I have to beg they smile for me.

They aren't the best pictures but they document today and they will work perfect in my PL album. Isn't that what all pictures are about anyway. Can you tell I'm a crafter or what?

I am unable to share my PL album for the week as last week was the week from HE double hockey sticks. I didn't feel like I was ever going to catch a break. Between waking up on Wednesday morning with a flooded bathroom, guest room and basement due to a backed up pipe between our house and the septic tank. Needless to say, we had a very smelly problem on our hands. We had plumbers, a restoration/cleaning company in and out of the house all week. Then on Thursday, the hubby took himself to the hospital for high BP and a few other health related issues. He was in there for 4 days but they were able to get to the root of a lot of problems. He had to celebrate his birthday in there and didn't get to start out Mother's Day with us this morning. Thankfully he is home now and feeing better.

While the boys were sleeping this morning I was able to get a little crafting in and it was nice. I found a couple of new challenges and decided to make something for one of them. It is called Catherine and Cathy Create. They have a 3 different challenges that take place during the month. For this month, one of the challenges is to make a card that was baby related. I knew exactly what I was going to use.

I pulled out my new DSP paper and baby framelits that are in the new catalog coming out in less than a month. It was a perfect reason to use it.

CCC #032: May 2014 Cards Challenge

CHALLENGE: Rock-a-Bye Baby

It's time to stock up on making your baby cards - it could be a baby shower, a welcome baby, a christening, a card with a baby on it!! Anything baby but it has to be a card!

I love that the paper is so neutral. It doesn't scream boy or girl. Unfortunately, I don't have many people having babies right now but maybe someone will so I can share this card. 

Even though the picture turned out better than they have been lately it looks like I used Tangerine Tango instead of Crisp Cantaloupe. I guess either way it looks pretty darn cute. Someone needs to have a baby soon so I can send this to them! 

I used Versamark to add some fun flowers to the Baked Brown Sugar paper and then added a white dot to give it a pop. Even though its a pretty simple card the white gel pen helps add a lot of dimension to the card. 

I am glad I found this new challenge and hope to be able to join the other challenges this month. 
Hope this inspired you to get out your craft supplies and join along as well. 

Happy Stampin!
