Crazy about You Mother's Day Card

I have not posted in a few days.  I have been in a lot of pain with my hip and my knee.  I'm falling apart!!!  I have resolved to the fact that getting older things happen to your body.  But why does it have to hurt?  It should be one or the other, but not both.  None at all would be ideal!!!  Okay, I'm done whining and I headed down to my workroom to make a fun card.  I found this layout at Jackie's Klompen Stampers blog.  It was done with Washi tape.  I didn't have any of the new washi tapes so I used some decorative paper from the "All Abloom" paper stack.  I LOVE those stacks.  You get a lot of paper for the money!!! I never seem to use the whole pack up.  Oh come on, I never use the whole pack of the 12 x 12 paper either!!! LOL

Okay, not that the whining and confessions are over, I'll tell you how fun and simple this card was to make.

I just cut my decorative paper into strips.  It doesn't matter what size.  I left them the long and cut the edge when I was done putting them on my background.

Once the strips were in place, I stamped the flower.  Mine came from the "Crazy about You" set.  Jackie had used the "Petal Potpourri" set.  And we both used the "Flower Medallion" punch on the flower.  It seems that I don't make many flower cards that don't have a matching punch with them anymore.  I've gotten not only lazy about it but dependent on them as well!!  It doesn't take much to spoil me!

The flower was set in place with Dimensionals.  I punched out another flower using Pistachio Pudding card stock.  I cut two of the petals and used them as leaves.  I taped them in place on top of the decorative paper.  I added a Candy Dot to the center of the flower.

The words are from the "Crazy about You" set.  I lined them up on my clear block and stamped both lines of words at one time.  It would have been even better if I were making a bunch of cards.  Having all the words lined up would have made it super easy to whip out several cards!

The base of the card is Strawberry Slush, the next layer is Pistachio Pudding, and the top piece is Whisper White.  I told you it was simple.  It was quick and easy!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
