Speaking of Mothers.........

So I know my post yesterday was a little deep. I guess it was a little too much for a couple of people at least because I have now lost some followers on my blog after that post. That is their option as this is mine to post what I feel on my blog. With that said. I would like to share a card that I made for my beautiful mother for Mother's Day. And I have to say that I am glad that my son's friend's mother had one last mother's day. I bet she was treated like a queen.


The printed papers I used were from a 6x6 card pad by LilyBee. I am really liking the card pad prints for my cards because they are a smaller print. The cardstock is by Worldwin. If you have not tried that cardstock, you really should. It cuts awesome on the Cricut (and I suppose any other die cut machine). It cuts clean and does not have fibers showing after the cut. The cardstock type that I used is the Cascata brand from Worldwin. And of course my trusty Irock from Imaginisce. I just love that tool. If you don't have one, you really need to get one. The Cricut carts that I used are Home Accents and Celebrate with Flourish Cartridges.


That is all for today. Not too deep, right? Maybe that is better....
 
Until next time,
Heather

I don't think you lost any followers. The way I see it, they lost you. It's their loss if they can't allow you to shout out on your blog. Life is not all about crafts and hobbies. There are some days where you just feel like letting go. If one cannot understand it then so be it and if they don't like that day's post, well then, don't read it. LOL That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I'm glad you wrote about the mother and let it out. It makes one feel better and you're only human after all. I think?? lol

Wow, thanks Joce! I was wondering if I had made a huge blunder by posting that. You have a lot of spunk. I like that! Keep it up and you can accomplish anything.

I read your blog, but don't really comment. I just wanted to say I am with Joce. She is right. Life is not all about crafts. It has its up and downs and your blog is your sounding board. Like she said if one doesn't like it, then don't read it. You are braver than I am. Because I will not put much out there other than my scrapbooking. Mostly because I kind of like my privacy. Truly though, it is sad that we can't accept that other people may have different views on things. It is what makes the world go round. I am glad that Mama had one more Mother's Day with her child(ren). I am sure it means so much to those left behind. :)

Beautiful card!! Your post yesterday was fine :)It really isn't fair to have to grow up without a parent...so sad.
As for the followers...it might just be blogger. I went to enter the Imaginisce blog give-away yesterday and had to follow them again. I never quit in the first place so not sure what happened there. I peeked to see if maybe I was one of your missing ones but I wasn't :)

Hmmm but then again maybe I was, you can drop me a note and let me know :) On my blog you are still on my watch list but here on your blog the follow button is showing like I am not a follower.

All the followers are gone on my blog too. I think blogger is having fits again!

I love this card... so pretty!
