Crying at the Office

I cried at the office today.

Don't worry. It wasn't in front of my boss or about anything bad.

It was when I watched the clip that's related to this Good Morning America story about a single mother who worked 3 jobs to support her 5 children and a nephew. It seems like she is a person with a big heart and put everyone before herself. It was really heartwarming to see that she was recognized by her efforts, not only by her children, but also by the people she works with. What a great way to kickoff Mother's Day weekend! :)


Anyhoo. For tonight's card, I wandered over to clean&simple (it's becoming a Friday night tradition) and really liked the sketch (Fall-To Layout #89) and the example card they did. The button flowers are super cute. I had been wanting to incorporate a big flower stamp in my cards for a while now, one I hadn't used before from my Ebay auction win a few months back, and thought this'd be the perfect opportunity. I thought the yellow was light enough that I could stamp the sentiment without having it fade in the background.

Card Specs:

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Yellow Citrus, Charcoal, Rouge
Stamp: Fiskars- Put on Your Party Hat (sentiment) , Fiskars- Just Between Friends (pink flowers), K.I. Memories- Logo Sushi (yellow flowers)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Foam Adhesive: Making Memories
