Happy Mother's Day

Oh, what a lovely Saturday it's been (minus the house cleaning...but  I do have a clean house now!! LOL)  I've witnessed all types of weather from my studio's window today...snow, hail, sunshine, clouds...I've been quite content to watch it all as I use some of my new Stampin' Up! product.  It was my month to be hostess in my Stampers 10 group!!  I always treat myself with a bigger than usual purchase and this year it was the SU cutter.  It's a guillotine style cutter and is so smooth!!! No more rough edges from my fiskars cutter...which as been demoted to "score only."  Because my Stampers 10 group order was over $460.00, I also got the new set Awash with Flowers.  Oh, I love this set already!!! I've always loved SU's 2 step stamping and this one does not disappoint.  I knew I wanted to use it for today's Viva La Verve card.  This is the inspiration photo I chose...I just love the reddy pink and purple together :)
I saw the flowers stamped on kraft in my head and was pleasantly surprised when it turned out in real life :)  I must make more of this stamped paper :)  Have a lovely day :) 
What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Plain Jane, Because of You, SU Awash with Flowers
Ink: SU choc chip, rose red, perfect plum
Paper: PTI cream, kraft, SU perfect plum, basic grey sugar rush dp
Accessories: SU horizontal slot and scallop border punches, Michaels ribbon, gemstones, corner chomper

I knew you would pick this room when I first say it and you have mad a fabulous card with them!! I'm torn between this one and the turquoise and orange (must be the bold brights I've had to work with lately LOL!). Not sure if I have the right colours for this room - no razzberry fizz here yet. I have eyed this set myself - no surprise it is a flower set LOL! Way to go with the guillotine - you'll love it! I have one I pinched form hubby's office about 6 years ago and wouldn't live without it!

I bet one of the sets you got at the Verve Release was the Irish Blessings set - how perfect is that for you :D Love the sentiments of the One Person set but not too thrilled with the flowers in it - just not my style I guess.

We had a blast at the Spring Carnival. Principal was smart enough to put up a TV so the guys could watch the Canucks play and keep them there. Can't wait to see how much money they made for the school.

I love the color combo too! Also, I'm a sucker for craft paper, it's a stample in my creations. :)

Thanks for sharing!
