Happy Days...

Do you wish the world were happy? Then remember day by day, Just to scatter seeds of kindness, As you pass along the way. . . . -Ella Wheeler Wilcox


What a wonderful Easter!!! I really enjoy family Holidays, especially when everyone is happy, the kids get along and there is good Food. :)

Lots of eggs were found, lots of candy was eatin' and us adults ate until we couldn't eat anymore....and then we had dessert. :)


We also celebrated my Mom's BDay (which is Tues) so we had to have cake and gifts! :) I woke up early and started on a card...it is hard for me to create for my Mom...it has to be SO very special! She really is my best friend! Luckily I still had an Iris left from some Wish RAKs I had received of Still Life Stems, my Mom's favorite flower is a classic Purple Iris...



Supplies:
Stampin' Up!: Still Life Stems, Linen, Everyday Flexible Phrases Stamps. Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, Brocade Blue Ink and Cardstock. Grosgrain Ribbon, Mat Stack
Basic Grey: Phresh and Phunky Pholiage
Making Memories: Decorative Brad, paper Piercer
Sakura: Pigma Micron Artist Pen

My SIL called 3 hours before I was supposed to be there, in the middle of my pre-cooking for the feast and asked for a card...she normally buys them from Hallmark (tsk tsk) so I wasn't expecting it...I rushed onto the SCS gallery for ideas and ended up CASEing a Wonderful card of Julee's (Shadowcatcher.) I followed her original pretty closely, with just a few substitutions.
