Mother's Day at Pile it On, but alas she gets no flowers.....

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan (to celebrate the last day of our annual Maple Festival!)

Yes, you are seeing correctly! I have a card for a DT project! :) oh happy, happy day! Today is a fun challenge over at Pile it On - create a Mother's Day card without using any flowers at all.... sounds much tougher than it actually is, especially for a coffee lover like myself. tee hee! My MIL happens to enjoy coffee almost as much as I, so it was easy to choose an image from our sponsor, Bugaboo, to make this fun card!

Papers are Lily Bee Designs Head Over Heels by, twill ribbon is Prima, buttons are Cosmo Cricket, baker's twine is Martha Stewart, accents of shimmerz paint and my white gel pen were added, and finally the heart was punched from a Starbuck's coffee cozy before spraying with pearl glimmer mist for a touch of shine! the polka dots on the coffee pot were made by tapping the end of my pen into my ink pad, then stamping right onto the cs.

Hi Jennifer,
I just wanted to stop by to see how you are doing. I realized I hadn't checked in with you since we emailed right after your diagnosis, and I wanted you to know that I have been thinking about you.

I know that what you're going through right now is heinous, but your faith, spirit, and ability to find beauty in each day is a tribute to your strength--strength that will guide you through this difficult time.

I'm so glad that you've been able to tap into your creativity in spite of all you're going through! I just adore the cover of your Smash Book, and the card you have shared today is so fun, and so YOU!

Hang in there, Jennifer. I'm thinking of you, and sending my love...
