20 Cards in a Tin - Day THREE - Layering Love

Hello there! It's Friday...the weekend is here and it's Mother's Day...are you ready? It's my first mother's day without my mom...strange feeling. We're going to barbecue, play some corn hole and have my mother-in-law over after church. It should be a very relaxing and FUN day! First though...I have to go down the mountain to grocery shop...Costco, Winco and R&R Meats are all on my agenda today. I was thinking about grocery shopping last night as I made my list and remembered the first time I went to Winco. For those of you who don't have one, it's a store that you bag your own groceries and I had never been to one. I made it through the shopping with my one month old daughter, my 2 1/2 year old son and Grandma Watson. She had a full cart and mine was overflowing. We get to check out and the baby starts crying (she's hungry)...I'm leaking milk and dripping in sweat because I'm trying to hurry to bag groceries...and I'm a little stressed! Finally, we finish and get out to the car to unload and I discover that my son (who was in the cart with my purse) had eaten an entire pack of Trident gum...eaten and swallowed!! His diaper smelled like spearmint for THREE DAYS! I, ABSOLUTELY called my mom to tell her gum DOES NOT stay in your stomach for seven years if you swallow it!! I giggle every time I think of this day...it's a great memory! I hope you giggle too!

Now...on to today's card!

This is the card I'm going to give my mom-in-law. The background is from the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper pack. I inked the edges with Early Espresso and a dauber. The sentiment is from the Layering Love stamp set. I stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits. I punched a flower with Pansy punch from scrap Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper. The center of the flower is Early Espresso cardstock cut with the 3/4" Circle punch and dry embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder. I also cut the butterfly from scrap Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper using the Bitty Butterfly punch. I inked the edges of the flower but somehow forgot the butterfly and the sentiment, but it still looks GREAT!! 

I just love this card...the colors, the layout, the sentiment! I used it in last Sunday's Facebook Hop...the theme was Mother's Day. I'm sure gonna miss the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper....it's on sale right now (and retiring) for $6.00...I think I'll stock up!

Well...thanks bunches for stopping by today! Have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND...enjoying family and friends...MAYBE even sneaking in a little time to CREATE!!
