Beautiful

Good morning! We are headed out on the road again... this time we are going South and visiting with my Mom and Grandmother. If you recall, she was in Florida, but is not all situated here on the West Coast. Her health issues are the same and she is still and will more than likely stay in a nursing care situation. I haven't had a chance to visit with her since she arrived here, but I'm looking forward to seeing her and seeing where she is living too.

I am quite jazzed though that I do have the boys' little Easter baskets all ready to go. I just have to remember to take them with us and we'll do eggs later tonight. It will be a quick visit and be back home on Sunday.

So today, I thought I would share a card that I did last week right after I got my new Close to my Heart Catalogs. I have an auto ship of catalogs sent to me and along with those I decided to sign up for the autoship of the stamps of the months too. I really enjoy getting them all at once and early to boot. I always go back and forth though each quarter as to whether I should keep it though. It is rather spendy.

Anyway, the point is that I played with one of the stamps from May's Stamp of the Month. It is actually quite different than a lot of hte stamps available and fits in with the whole "person" craze in the stamping world. Its called "Be Yourself" and like I said, its just fun.

I paired the stamp with some left over American Crafts paper I had and I just love the look of this card.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
