Mother's Day
Well, I still have one more Easter card to show you, but it was just mailed today, so I'll save it for a couple more days before I share it with you. Meanwhile, I have already made my Mother's Day card. It turned out to be really easy after I found the Meow cartridge at Joann's today. I didn't mean to buy anything, but I just had to have it! My mother and all the rest of my family are cat lovers, big time. I think my mom will love this card! I do, even more when they're made of paper. I have one cat, which is enough for all of us.

The background paper I is from a DCWV mat stack, Taj Mahal. The mother cat is from another mat stack called Safari, and the kittens are from a package of American Crafts textured neutral cardstock. I didn't have green jewels like those I used for the mother's eyes, so I ended up using a permanent marker to color some little adhesive silver beads.

I''m really looking forward to making more things from Meow. There are a lot of cute images! I suppose I should finish graduation and wedding cards first. Then the baby album. There isn't enough crafting time in my world. Oh, but I have a 4 day weekend over Easter! Maybe I can make a good dent in that list. I have an idea for a Christmas card that I'd like to try also. I think I could craft all day!

We still haven't seen hide nor hair of Spring yet. I got an e-mail that said we weren't having Spring this year. Sure hope it's a joke...

Have a great day!
