Take Two

I hope everyone had a HAPPY Mother's Day! Mine was better than I anticipated. I knew I wasnt getting anything due to finances and was okay with that but I spent most of saturday feeling very unappreciated and unloved. After creating a very angry layout I felt better :Sometimes a girl just needs to get it alllll out!

Sunday made up for it. I went to lunch with my mom and my siblings, picked up my MIL and then was able to lock myself in my scraproom with a bottle of wine and play for 3 hours straight. My husband (mostly) made dinner for us and I played with my sweet little Aubrey for a bit before hiding out in the scraproom for another hour. It was just what I needed to recharge and get my craft on. I got my crop on at tallyscrapper. One of the NSD challenges was to create 2 all occasion cards that sound be similiar but not the same. We were also required to use buttons and bright colors. I decided to combine it with a few other challenges....and of course my odd girls

Both cards use scraps from Cosmo Cricket garden variety

This card uses CLEAR stamp Smell the flowers Tia and sentiment

Im entering her into the following challenges
Crazy challenge (anything goes)
mami doodles (girly)
Tip Top Tuesday (flower frenzy)


 This card uses Night out Mae digital stamp

Im entering her into the following challenges
Incy wincy (girlie)
kaboodle doodles (lots of layers)
Prarie fairy friday (for the girls)
Stamp something (digi)
Cooking it Up With Katie - green, 2 of anything and a punch

I have several layouts to post soon too!

Hi Sarah. Love your cheery cards. Yes - I must agree with you - sometimes you just have to lock yourself away from everyone so that you can better meet their needs later on. Thanks for sharing and joining us at Top Tip Tuesday this week.
