Use It! Challenge Card

OK, so I'm not doing so well on my daily blogging so far! I'm out of the habit and not in a rhythm yet! I did manage to whip up this card for my grandma for Mother's Day and decided to use the current Use It Challenge for this one. I put a couple of pictures inside and even managed to pop it in the mail today!

The flowers are in the patterned paper which it sounded like from the sample for this challenge was OK. I also used fibres on the bottom of the sentiment piece and the metal for this was the brads. I don't think you can tell, but the bird is all blinged out too because I used a glitter pen on it for a little pop.

We had a relaxing evening watching the fabulous Canucks win this evening and as we're sitting in the living room, Nathan says to me, "Take my picture". Yes, they're used to having a camera in their face all the time now! He wanted a picture with Rufus the dog and he was all smiles for it too as you can see!

Well, better go back it in here for another night since Sophia will be here in the morning and the boys will be up bright and early! I really, truly am a lucky woman to be living the life I have with the wonderful family and friends I have too...

Have a great Wednesday!
Cheers,
