I'm tired to DEATH of this rain! I know, I know...California NEEDS rain...but ugh. Dirt city. The dogs are dirty..the floor is dirty from the dirty dogs...my car is dirty....my shoes are dirty. Blech!

So, to inject a little un-dirtiness into my life, I've been making some spring-gy cards and creations lately. I'm ready for bright and sunny mornings! Soon enough though...I suppose. Still, the rain makes me all pouty. hehe

OH! Before I forget, my mom has just started her foray into making cards and whatnot. You see, my mother is one crafty gal. She can sew like no tomorrow and she crochets...with the little thread stuff. I can't even lace up shoes, so I'm sure I'd be way confused over crocheting! Anyway, she's been looking at my card blog and my freinds' card blogs and she decided she wanted to play with paper, too!

Well, back in the fall, I sent her two GINORMOUSLY stuffed boxes full of paper & stamps & just all sorts of stuff. And she's been making a few things here and there. But, she's starting a blog to show off her cards and sewing and crocheting projects. Here is her blog: Granny's Apron Strings. She just has one thing she made on there now (maybe because I have failed in my promise to send her some cardstock...must order that this week!) Anyway, go say hi and encourage her. I've got a bunch more "stuff" to send, too. LOL I may have a bit of a paper and stamp buying addiction. lalala

Anyway, back to the card. What I used is a stamp from Great Impressions. Y'all. I love their stamps. They're just so pretty! I used some SU CS, SU PP, Copic markers, Shimmerz Paints, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, Prima flowers, and a brad. The sentiment is from Amy R. Stamps Warm and Cozy set from All That Scraps. (Also, let us pretend that the sentiment is stamped straight and not stamped at a slight angle...kthx. LOL!)

That is all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to show you my card for tomorrow...hehe!
