Stamping around the clock

Hey all,

It's midnight, or thereafter, and the past 24 hours has included a stamp night over at my friend's house where I worked on my sneak peek project, getting our ceiling painted (more on that later), and then more stamping to make another Mother's Day card. This card will be for my mom. This is my second post showing my latest peer-pressure creation (See the Happy Easter! post for the first one) . I DID! I made the infamous Flower Pot card as so many have done over at SplitCoastStampers. I finally had to try when I saw this -->one<--. I didn't have any of the materials that she used, but I was able to make do with my vast amounts of Cuttlebug and Cuttlekids dies.





I used Verve stamps from Because of You and Cuttlekids Flower Die Set (4pk)




The cardstock is an array of Local Scrapbook and Supplies store so I don't have color names for all of them BUT I did use Stampin' Up Old Olive for the card insert base, stems and leaves. The sentiment was stamped in SU Brilliant Blue.

Instructions for this type of card can be found at Stephanie Luman's website here.
Here's the back of the card showing the little stand I made so it will stand up by itself.


For those who might have read in a previous post about our water leak damage...read on.

I finally was able to get quotes from two contractors and they were just under the insurance claim price. I hope the actual cost will be the same as well. For about 3 weeks we had a six foot square hole in our kitchen dining area (nook) because a faulty t-connector busted (okay, it just had a crack and was leaking for who knows how long.). So this week we had drywall put up and boy I wish I would have taken some pictures of all the plastic that had to go up just to protect everything that wasn't suppose to get fixed. 48 hours later new plastic was put up and we now have a new closed ceiling. All that's left to do is pay the bills.

Have a great Sunday!
