Mother's Day Doodle!

Last Friday my daughter and I went to Michael's. There were many changes as well as many things added in their paper craft department. We had a great time....it was like being in a brand new scrappin' store.

The Martha Stewart line was pretty impressive. Boy!...when she comes in she certainly does it with a bang. Her products were pretty nice ...I'm sure they will appeal to a lot of people. She has beautiful fine glitters. Her stamps and inks were nice ...but not to my taste....(but sometimes later on things grow on me...know what I mean?). She had some very nice ribbon, and all her products look to be fine quality.

What did I buy of Martha's?....Just one fine glitter and glitter glue. Her prices are pretty high and although I thought I could sure use some of her nice punches, not being able to use a coupon makes a big difference for me. I'm sure they will probably have a sale eventually...but...since I am so far from a Michael's it is a hit or miss type of thing for me.

I again was very impressed with the K&Company products. Beautiful paper and products at quite reasonable prices. Since I can use a coupon for the large paper pads..I am very happy and then tend to overbuy on everything else simply because I got a deal on something large priced...lol..am I hopeless or what?

Now on to the card I made for my Mother for Mother's Day......I hope she likes it!

The stamp sets are both from Stampin' Up.. Doodle This and I think All-Year Cheer II. The card stock is Stampin' Up as well as the inks. Embellishments are; Stampin' Up ribbon and clear embossing powder, Ranger stickles, Prima flower, a gold brad and sewing.

Thank you so much for looking....Have a Great Day! ...and to all the mother's a Wonderful Happy Mother's Day!!!
