Happy Mothers' day! Stampin' Up retiring products

Happy Mothers' Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, etc. out there! Even if you don't have human children, you might be a furbaby mother, and that counts too!  A little present for you above :-)

Actually, it is the gift I sent my mother this week, along with a special card I made her.

Since my mother likes Audrey Hepburn, I used a Hero Arts stamp for her card.  There is a combination of mostly Stampin' Up products on the card.  There is only until the end of the month to purchase retiring products from the Stampin' Up catalogs, so you will want to get them now in my online store!

You can check out the Eastern Palace Suite that will be in the new Stampin' Up catalog in my online store too:

Hope you have a great Mother's Day - we are going to a buffet dinner - yummy and I think I might hear from both of my sons too...

May blog hop - Mother's Day project

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is Mother’s Day/florals.  Here is my project:

 I used the Beautiful You stamp set, and instead of just a Mother’s Day card, I had some pretty little frames, so I designed an insert for it. I plan on printing off the greeting, Happy Mother’s Day, since I can use my laptop to make it just the right size for the frame that way.  Here are a couple more pictures of it:

You can get all of the Stampin’ Up products I used in my online store:
These items will only be available until the end of this month, since the current Stampin’ Up catalogs will be retiring!

The next blog you will hop to is:

Enjoy her awesome project and the rest of the bloggers' designs as well, and thanks for stopping by!

Here is a list of all of this month’s bloggers you will be viewing:

Craft room update on dresser

I have been busy with Stampin' Up's end of the year promotions, most recently that the retirement list is out -- you can see the list in my online store, ( and the final day for items on it is May 31.  So if there are any products you must have, this is the time to purchase them.  There will be a few price increases too...So in-between re-arranging my craft room and a visit over Easter from my oldest son from N.C., it has been busy.  Did you have a visit from the Easter bunny?!

While working in my craft room, I realize I never posted the final pictures of my large dresser that I made over in white shabby chic back in 2011. The dresser originally looked like this:

Back in August 2011, I made the dresser over so it matched my craft room, which is white and light blue shabby chic and you can see posts about the distressing process (  And now it looks like this:

Did you see the first picture at the beginning of this post?  It's a little french label that I got off of The Graphic Fairy and I rubbed it with light blue chalk and mounted it on black paper so it would match my craft room theme!

You can read my other postings back in August 2011 where I also shared my makeovers of other items for my craft room as well as items I used to complete and decorate my room.
