How About One Last Mother's Day Card?

I have been so busy lately, that my creative time has been seriously shortened! When I do get the chance to create it is like pulling teeth! I sit and stare at the papers.....and nothing, nada, zip.....mojo gone! So I thought I would show you one last Mother's Day card that I never posted. I created this card with absolutely no stamping! I had a bunch of scraps on my desk and they looked pretty good laying next to each other, so one thing led to another, and voila! I did a bit of Cuttlebugging, sewing, and again used a doily. (My favorite product these days!).

*** Would you believe that yesterday, while on the highway, I killed a bird?! No, it didn't fly into my window.....the darn thing was standing in the middle of the road, standing! I thought for sure as I got closer it would fly away. Nope. I killed it.........(accidentally! ) What a horrible feeling! Poor thing! Yep.......I am a bird killer.

Don't forget to enter HERE for blog candy! Drawing will be held Friday evening!
Thanks for stopping! : )

Natural selection. It still makes us feel bad though. I did not feel bad when I saw police in my neighborhood apprehend a hooligan that was wearing all bright red apparel. Natural selection there too! What a dumb kid. 1st for what ever he did and then wearing bright red to do it.

love your blog. Your cards are beautiful. I enjoyed peaking at a few pages worth this afternoon!

HAve a great day!

That's ok I saw something huge in the road a while back and as i slowed down and came up on it - it was a mama raccoon and two babies - they were walking straight down the middle of the road and as i slowed and swerved to the right to make sure I gave them tons of room all three ran right into my car. I ended up killing mama and one baby. I cried all the way home. I didn't know what to do about the baby so I called a friend and we went back looking for it but it was gone. On a happier note I LOVE your card - very victorian, all lace and roses. Sweet and romantic.

Michele the glitter on your mushroom got "lost" in the photo. I still liked your design (but I bet I'd love it with bling). It looks like I'm going to have to become a follower of your blog.

I can sympathize with the loss of mojo...it will return, you can be sure.
