Fuschias for Mother's Day

Good morning everyone! Did you find time to play along in our Mother's Day card challenge. Last weeks gallery over on Emily's blog was AMAZING and I can't wait to see what you all came up with this week.


I chose Fuschias for Lulu for my Mothers Day card because my mom ALWAYS has a hanging basket overflowing with them on her front porch during the summer months. I have tried, but alas, I'm just not disciplined enough to water them three times a day in the hot days of summer and they always end up drying out and then they are dead by July.

Speaking of dead...I have to tell ya why I'm a little late posting today. You see I was gonna write it this morning and sat down at my desk to get started. Bessie girl...four-legged fur baby wanted to go outside so I got up and let her out....WELL...heading back to my chair I noticed a GIANT FREAKING CENTIPEDE under my desk!!!!!!!!! OMG....had I continued to sit there it might have decided to crawl up on me! I can barely even type about it cause I'm still SO FREAKED! Mark came to the rescue and THANKFULLY it is DEAD! blllllaaagh....i just gave myself the willies! Mark PROMISED that he will call the pest control people today and deal with the situation. You see, this is the SECOND siting this week of pedes taking over my house. One a year, I can almost handle...two in a week...and i'm packing my bags!

That's it for today! (oooh...i did manage to make another paper doll card though...will post later!) Our challenge next week will be NO challenge for me! Go thru you bella binders, or bag of new rubber and pull out something that has NEVER SEEN INK! If you are like me this is NOT gonna be difficult.
