Oh, this stamp set brings back fond memories of being surprised by my hubby who took me to my  first Stampin’ Up Convention in Salt Lake City last year even before I was a demonstrator! It was so much fun that he talked me into signing up with SU. I loved the theme song “I Am” that was played throughout the convention- how could I not jump right in? What a great time it has been meeting wonderful people in my community and online- I am so thankful for everyone who has come into my life;) This is how I feel about you all:

I used turned the sketch on its side from Pals Paper Arts # 156 and used the colors from Colour Q # 186. The featured designer at Muse  Card Club # 14 this week is  Virginia Lu who made a beautiful, brightly colored card with a white background on a Kraft card base  framing a  white focal image with some little pearls scattered which I did as well in my own way:

Happy Mother's Day

  6. Very pretty card! I love your great colors. Thanks so much for the kind comment you left on my Muse card. I use a Bow Easy to tie my bows. It’s very easy to use and the bows always look great.

    1. Ah, thank you for sharing your technique….I have a Bow Easy that I have played with a few times…I must get it out again. I think I got frustrated because I was trying to tie little bows one time with it. Thanks for visiting;)
