Are you tired of my Mother's Day cards yet?

I hope not, because I've got a couple more for you today.

This card features more of those unbranded dies I keep talking about. The lacy panel is one of those, as are the flower stamps with matching dies.

I just stamped a whole bunch of the flowers and foliage, cut them out with the matching dies and used them on various cards.

The gems are from my stash.

The interior of this card is pretty plain with just a computer-generated sentiment.

More unbranded dies were used here for the white background panel, the wood crate (cut from wood-patterned cardstock) and the grass. The flowers were some that I've had in my stash for ages. I actually got them at an arts and crafts second hand store here in the metro area. They were very inexpensive--like 25 cents for a small bag stuffed with at least a hundred of them. Every once in a while I put some of them to good use.

This card has another plain interior with a computer-generated sentiment.

Well, I have managed to get most of my annuals planted for this year. I still need to get a couple more, plus a couple of perennials and get them in the ground. Hopefully, I can take care of that this coming weekend. It always feels so good to get my planting taken done.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
