Well, here in MA we are back to frigid, damp yucky weather. So depressing! So hopefully this week's 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop
will make me feel a bit more springy! This is nasty!

Welcome to Helen's blog hoppers!!! Onward to Liz's blog after here! Then keep going and enjoy these pretty colors! Maybe get some inspiration yourself!

This week's card:

The Stampin' Up! colors:
So I had Mother's Day on my mind this week.  But I already made my Mother's Day card for my MIL, so decided to make this a nice "thinking of you" type card!  Came out nicer than I had hoped!

I used for the first time my new FREE stamp set that came with last month's   My Paper Pumpkin called All About Everything! What a nice stamp set that is! Wow! It looks so pretty with this Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  Then cut it all out with the Lots of Labels Framelits & it really "frames" the flowers nicely! 

I will admit to pulling out a few retired Large Pearl Accents from years gone by! Oops! I just wanted something larger for the center & didn't have any of the new ones left, so mea culpa! 

I'm so bummed that this 1/4" Cotton Ribbon is retiring! It came in so many colors & was my "go-to" ribbon! Not too big or small & super easy to work with!

If you look closely, I "blinged" it up a bit with my Wink of Stella Clear Pen! That is so easy to use to add just a hint of bling! Not too much!

I somewhat brought myself out of the weather doldrums today pre-ordering from the new catty!!! That's one of the perks of being a demonstrator! We get to see & order before everyone else! Just wait until you see the new In-Colors!!!! So cool!!!!! Can't wait to share some projects with you! Be sure to order your "must haves" from the Retiring List though! They are going quickly!!!

Gonna go pray for sun! I'm growing moss!

Happy Stampin'!
