Cutting Cafe' Mother's Day Card!

Good morning to you! Yesterday I had a tutorial on how to make these dimensional glittery flowers and as you know I made like a bajillion of them! LOL! So here is a card using the All About Mom Cutting Cafe' set and one of my flowers! I sewed the sentiment to a piece of fabric using pink thread. I added some scraps of paper from my desk, I know one of them is a piece of old Wild Asparagus paper, but not sure what the other paper is. I added a dollie, a satin Papertrey Ink ribbon, glittered flower, and an old vintage button tied with twine.

aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh..............glitter!!! : )

What a aggravating, crabby day I had yesterday! Here is the list of craziness that ensued yesterday.....
1. computer still in the shop.....no word on when I will get it back yet! EEERRGGHH!!! (Which explains my lack of "blurfing.")
2. Took 9 hours to install AT & T U-verse (cable, phone, Internet company) because they screwed up my order for the 3rd time!!!!!! (Company was out last week and this past Monday....so this was day #3!)
3. My washing machine's "pump" broke..........I am out $250.00. (Did have it fixed however!)
4. AT & T screwed up our order AGAIN......went to use the High Definition channels.....which we wanted.....but didn't have. ANOTHER call to this darn company to get it fixed!
5. Awaiting parts for my van. Apparently they are "custom" made parts and won't be in for 10-14 days. So I guess I will continue to struggle getting Cort in the van on the other side of the van, which is NOT handicapped accessible!
6. My bedroom is a mess, because we are redecorating it.....so I painted woodwork, in between the AT & T U-verse guy, and the appliance guy!
7. Cort's CT scan came back......she has persistent Sinusitis and a blocked sphenoid. So back on ANOTHER round of antibiotics. (This makes 4.....but who's counting?)
OK..........enough of my crabbing! But seriously? A day that I am glad is OVER!!!
So I do apologize for not visiting anyone.....but I am working once again, off of my Teeny Tiny Netbook! Not really ideal for long computer time! Hopefully, next week, I will be back to my normal schedule! : )
Thanks for listening to my rant! Have a wonderful Thursday!!!

Oh Michele.....What a day it was!!!! Somedays came be so trying and I too wonder why things just can't go smoothly...We just had our sidewalks put in and a squirrel hopped through it and make scratches and there is nothing that we can do...so now I have brand new sidewalks with scratches in them....along with a piece on our truck that we had replaced a year ago just died and now I have to pay another $500.00 to fix it!!! AHHHHHH....LIFE!!!

The card is stunning...the colors so perfect and I adore those flowers....I did go on a hunt for my cross stitch material and I think it was moved out to our garage....I will continue to loo!!! LOVE THESE FLOWERS!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!!! Poor Cort....too many antibiotics!!!

I empathize my friend! Wed. was like that for me---it was soooo bad, I took a sleeping pill at 6:30pm and put myself to bed! I just couldn't handle another thing going wrong! It doesn't matter...that 10yrs. from now--none of this stuff will be remember or matter---TODAY its a pain in the potootie! Hang in there! Sending good thoughts and prayers--sneek some time in just for you! Blessings, SHaron

Oh heavens, what a day! I can relate to the phone, internet, cable installation... we tried to get Verizon, took 5 different techs and 6 different trips to our house. Not only did the service never work right, but we got over charged every month for 6 months, each bill higher than the last. I would go to the store in person and spend hours there, finally cancelled the cable, internent still wonky but useable and the voicemail sometimes drops messages.
