Celebrate! (Stamp Simply Challenge)

 


Lots of reasons to celebrate today! It's Mother's Day and I am enjoying a lovely lazy day today. I have two wonderful kids and a beautiful grandson who made me feel very special this weekend and everyday. Yesterday we met my son and his fiance' and her parents for a fun visit spent laughing and planning their wedding.

Today I am starting a whole new chapter in my life- more reason to celebrate! I quit my very high stress full time job and am going to take some time off before looking for a part time job that will take me up to when I officially retire. So I will have more time for stamping and blogging and scrapping and the huge to-do list I have without getting up every day at 5:00 am and working 8 hours at a job where my hard work was unappreciated.

Stamp Simply's challenge this week was to make a female or Mother's Day card. With pinks and butterflies, I think this card qualifies. No stamping on this card! The butterfly image is a Penny Black sticker and the "celebrate" is a rub-on. The butterfly punch is one of my favorites and is by Tonic.
