Love affair with designer paper

I am in love with designer paper. At first, I was a hoarder and afraid to cut into the pretty sheet. Then, it would retire on me and I never used it. Now, I use it all the time. I don't know how I did cards with out it now.

My new personal favorite, afternoon tea from the summer mini. It is gorgeous in groovy guava, chocolate chip, soft sky and wild wasabi. I love any combination with chocolate chip, it's the new black. I might have serious withdrawals when new cattie comes out in August and we have new "in colors".

Anyways, for our demo meeting swap this month the theme was "Mother's day". For lent, I gave up buying new stamps. Thank goodness that's over! But, I do not have any current "mother's day" sentiment stamps.

So, this is what I came up with. I also gave up trying to use stamp-ma-jig.

card recipe:
cs: groovy guava, chocolate chip, very vanilla, afternoon tea dsp
ink: groovy guava, chocolate chip
stamps: wild rose, lovely letters alphabet
access: theater originals ribbon, gold brad
