Oldie But Goodie Thursday

Happy Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Bugaboo Stamps today!  =)

I forgot to share with you earlier in the week the Mother's Day Cards for our mom's that I whipped up (about the ONLY thing I actually created last week).
Yep, you can say it - SLACKER!!
The joys of starting a new job and not having any brain cells left when you get home to do anything but go to bed.

I have to say, I am pretty stoked about this new opportunity I've been given.  It's a job that is so up my alley - I love the creativity - and the organization (I'm a bit OCD when it comes to organization in some things).

Okay, enough of that A.D.D. - here's this bright and fun card I whipped up (did I mention that I love me some Cosmo Cricket "Delovely" paper??)
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "Flower Jar"
Papers - Cosmo Cricket "Delovely" Scraps, & Bazzill Scraps from my scrappy bin
Coloring - Copics
Tools - CM Corner Punch
Extra STUFF - Custom colored BLING, Ribbon from my stash & Dimensionals

I just LOVE these colors together!! =)  Some of my FAVORITE paperline that I HOARD (because they quit making the Delovely line).
Hugs & Happy Days!

Happy Mother's Day!! =)

Happy Mother's Day to my Mama, my hubby's Mama (my 'nother mama) and my friend Holly who is a Soon-to-Be Mama - and of course, all the other wonderful Mom's out there!
Without Mom's - where would be be?  Probably running low on manners, in need of a shower and clean change of clothes and maybe, quite possibly a bit hunger.
So, if you're a mom - THANK YOU for all you do for your friends & families!

My apologies for being a slacker this week - I started a new job this past Monday (that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!) and with all the new stuff that I've been trying to absorb, most of my brain cells are way too fried by the time I finally get home to do much of anything but eat dinner and go to bed.

Hopefully, this week will be a bit different - Week 2!

However, to make up for my being MIA - I thought I'd share with you one of our sunset photos from our trip to St. Pete Beach.
This was the view from our balcony - EVERY night!

We had a blast and actually attended our very first Food Truck Rally!  =)  My hubby and I enjoyed it so much we can't wait for the next one we can take advantage of!  =)

Wishing you or your Mama a VERY happy Mother's Day!
Hugs & Happy Days!
