Finally Friday!!

     Not a fancy card, by any means today, but at least I feel like I was able to play.  There is soooo much going on around here getting the house ready to put on the market that I feel like I have little to no time to stamp. When I'm not cleaning closets and talking to workmen I am on the internet looking at homes in the Atlanta area.....sometimes I feel like my head is going to explode, they ALL begin to look alike.
      My Mothers Day gift to myself is to spend the day stamping and playing. I have a long list of cards to work on and I am looking forward to it.  Today's card is one of many I want to get ready for our church bookstore, who has graciously bought my cards to sell.....they are in need of a few more.  I used my new Our Daily Bread Designs frames and matching Nestabilities.....thought I should add a little something so played around making a crinolin flower with some netting, this makes a nice soft flower and one that should mail easily.
     Wishing all you Mom's an early Happy Mother's Day.....sadly my mother and my DH mother have been gone for many years, but we will be thinking of them Sunday.  

Supplies used: CS, Stampin Up More Mustard, Ribbon, ODBD sentiment and frame stamp, Nestabilities, Crinolin and netting for flower, brad.  Cuttlebug EF
