Hey Mom! Over the Hump Day Challenge and Candy



It's the middle of the week...are you all making it through okay? Hey Maahhhhh-uuuummm! You here that? That's my children. They are in high need of something these days and "hey mom" has already rung through our house several times this week. Guess what the theme for Over the Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway is this month? Yea, It's Mom's Day!

I've got some inspiration for you to help you through the rest of your week. If that's not enough you'll have to go over to the InStyle Stamps blog for details on the challenge and blog candy! That will for sure get you on your way to Friday. LOL

(my photos are not coming out very clear in blogger...just click on it to see it in focus. sorry)

Here's my card for today. And yes, I'm stuck in green and blue colors! I thought about the feather duster being peacock feathers and that's where I got the green and blue for the rest of the card. I know you all are rolling your eyes right now, but I promise to work hard and get into another color scheme for my next post.

My card is using InStyle Stamps Darla stamp. She is so happy dusting. I'd love for her to come on over to my place for a while, but I have her all set up to be mom for the day. Now my mom really does love to keep house of which I am greatly lacking at present, but its the stage where I just get a clean wet wipe out to wipe the television screen before I hear "Hey mahhhhhhuuummmm!" Well, it's not a wet wipe anymore but at one time in my life there was Go-gurt (yogurt in a tube) smeared all over my television screen and the closest I could grab to clean with was a wet wipe from the changing basket.

Oh I am getting completely sidetracked so I'll skip card details for this post. It's all pretty straight-forward.

Jump on over to the InStyle Stamps blog and get the details to join in on this months challenge. I'm guessing that you either need a mom's card or you know someone who just might, so this challenge can help you along just dandy!
