I had a wonderful weekend! I got to spend time with my Mom and a few of my stamping friends in Victoria. What is better than spending time with Mom and friends? Getting time to play with stamps, ink and paper too! Whoo-hoo!
The other reason I got so excited is because my mom wanted to make a card for each of our friends we would be spending crafting time with (you see my mom is a fibre artist, not a paper crafter - so this is a big thing for me! Yahoo Mom!) So, my mom actually made a set of cards and I want to share it with you today. It is also a really fun and easy card to recreate, so I hope you give it a try!
