Deal of the Month

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! Mine was wonderful. The girls made me the most wonderful book. I will have to scan it and share it. My sweet husband is getting me a sofa table that I have been wanting for our living room. I can't wait to start shopping for it! The weekend felt way too short though. We pulled the girls out of school early Friday to head to Wisconsin for my uncle's funeral. We got there just in time to spend a little time with family before we needed to get the girls to my parents and into bed. The funeral was beautiful and a wonderful tribute to a great man. I got to spend time catching up with cousins that I have not seen in years. One of the advantages to making this trip this weekend is that I got to spend time with my mom over the Mother's Day weekend. We don't get that opportunity very often and I am thrilled to have had a chance to spend even a little bit of time with her.
I put this card together for the Card-a-licious Challenge Blog this last week. The challenge is to use yellow, pink and teal together on a card. Not a huge challenge for me on this one. I just adore this color combination and have been using it quite a bit lately.

I also decided to join the ladies at the Shabby Tea Room for their Chipboard Challenge this week. This lovely chipboard butterfly is one of the new chipboard pieces from Magistical Memories. I painted the butterfly with red acrylic paint and then stamped on him using black ink. After the ink was dried I added gold detail using Stickles.
