Sunday in the crafty mode

It took me several days to get into the crafty mode, but once I got in the craft room and sat down, I really got to work.  Not alot of creativity, but lots of work.  I had to get my card buffet flyer made, and mailed.  First, I had to narrow down the number of cards I wanted to make from 10 to 5, and I settled at 6!  LOL!  Always the overachiever.   had one card that I had whipped up in a few minutes a few weeks ago, just to show my friend, Debby, my idea for a card for the buffet. Today, I ripped it apart, and remade it to my liking. I think it would make a nice card for Mother's Day or a spring birthday. I kept the salutation flexible for either. I went to the garden center and picked up some flower packets to add to the card. I figure if the cards don't get sold, I can plant a flower garden. 
I got the idea for this card at the Milwaukee Regional Conference for Stampin' Up!  It was not a card that I received in the card swap, but one of the other ladies I traveled with received the card, and I saw it on the way home in the car.  Cindy made a version of this for our demo swap in April, which is where my inspiration came from, but I really made my own version.  Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by :)
