Cherry Blossom Mother's Day Card

Yard sale womp: I guess not every weekend can be a lucky yard sale weekend.  I probably went to about 10 today, and didn't find anything that I liked.  I did see the old school game "Connect Four" for what looked like 25 cents, but a dad snatched up when I walked by the second time around.  I also saw a kettlebell that some guy was offering for $3.  I would have picked it up if it was more than 5 pounds.  Wah.  Anyway, I saw the same co-worker that I saw last weekend too.  She found some books and medieval figurines for her son.  She said that if I ever needed a partner-in-crime in the yard sale game to let her know.  Who knew that people would actually be interested in yard saling with me?!  Ha ha.

Food: I tried out a new place to eat called Boloco with Beth.  She's been there, but I hadn't.  I tried the spicy BLT which was yummy.  I was a little nervous that the dressing would be too spicy, but it was just the right amount of kick.

Card:  I can't believe that Mother's Day is right around the corner!  The approaching holiday is what inspired me to do this card.  I also wanted to crack into some sheets of rub-ons that I got a while back at a yard sale.  The plastic of the rub-ons allowed me to do some watercolor resist with the Tim Holtz ink pads.

Card Specs: 
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird.  Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Mustard Seed
Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly!
Rub-On: Jenni Bowlin Transferware Flowers-Black and Bird & Branch
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Other: Liquid Pearl in Buttercup, Rouge.  Staedtler Triplus Fineliner
