Gratitude!

Those of you who have subscribed to my blog using Feedblitz will get this post tomorrow morning, I believe the "mail" goes out around 1 am Central time. And for those of you who use the Google Reader the post goes into your Reader the minute I hit "publish." So this wish may be a little early for some of you but that's OK, it doesn't change the sincerity in it. I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day. I hope your day is filled with many fond memories (ones you'll even scrapbook!!!).

My card for today is a little different. I decided to combine a couple of colors I rarely use together, red and orange. Right from the Bold Brights group. Don't you just LOVE those colors Cyndi???? LOL (Cyndi is one of my fellow DIVA's and Bod Brights is not one of her favorite color groups. But I will work on her and get her to like it one of these days!!! LOL). And I also combined that with a set I have hardly used. The Stampin' Up! "Defining Alphabets" set, I even had to cut out the "G" to use it!!! And the "Define Your Life" set. I like them both but have not played with them much at all. I had opened up my catalog and I saw on page 156 the little red card made using this set. I decided I was going to copy something out of the catalog. I'd never done that before. I didn't have that little flower they had and that's what started the whole thing of deviating away from the copying. And this is what I came up with. I used decorative paper from the "Picnic" pack. The flower is from the "One of a Kind" set along with the Boho Flowers punch. I added some ribbon and brads and I actually liked how it came out!! Shocker, huh?? Especially after the last one. UGH!!!

This is a very quick card to make too!!! To view more quick cards please click here.

Thanks for the wishes Wanda...and Happy Mothers Day to you too!
Love the color combo on the card. Sometimes when someone mentions colors together I just can't picture it, but you make them work so well together.

What a cheery card! I had to look at page 156 to see how closely your card was to the original....but it's not even close. Yours is far better! I love Define Your Life, too, but don't use it often enough. Guess I will have to CASE your card, though; it's too cool not to copy.

I really, really like this card. I proposes endless possibilities using the Define Your Life set and an Alphabet set... not to mention throwing other colors into the mix. Love it!
