Blessed Mother

Boy am I behind the power curve!  The last few months have been crazy hectic, and it seems that some things have been put on the back burner.  My blog posts and stamping are two of the things.  I am soooooooooo sorry. 

We are winding down the school year (only about 3 weeks left) and it seems that I am running the minute my feet hit the floor at 4:45 a.m. each morning.

March and April were spent getting ready for a fundraiser that we had for my oldest step-son.  Many of you don't know that he was injured in a drive-by shooting into his apartment bedroom window back in October.  He was left a quadriplegic and just got out of rehab in the middle of February.  He was in Denver's Craig Hospital which is THE BEST in spinal cord and brain injuries in the nation.  Well, since he didn't have any insurance, we held a fundraiser at the beginning of April for him.  He is doing well given his situation and the fundraiser was a HUGE success, thanks to my wonderful daughter and her awesome husband.   Between that and trying to get in the rest of my curriculum at school, grading essays  (yuck!!!!!) and all of the other stuff that goes with the end of the school year, I have been busy, busy, busy.

I've had this card done for awhile.  It is partially CASED from the Occasion Mini  (p. 18) that expires today.  I loved this mini and I am going to miss many of the stamp sets and dsp that were in it.  I can only hope that some of them reappear in the big IBC that comes out this coming July. 

Since Mother's Day is only a week away, I wanted to get this up to show all of you.  I put my card to my mom in the mail today!

Hope you like it and I promise to be better a posting in the future.  Until my next one...

Happy Stamping~
