Things that has made today a "good day"

First of all it is Friday

It has been a beautiful spring day

I get to work outside all day tomorrow in my flowers

And best of all My Mom came home from the hospital today.

After falling on Easter Sunday, my 85 year old Mother came home from the hospital today. She is one strong determined lady. She really had us girls very worried about her. I want to thank all the prayer warriors that continued to pray for her recovery.

Like I said above it is Friday, and that is the day we get to turn in our Saturday Night Challenge over at Pat's Southern Breezes. This week we were suppose to use something besides a regular stamp to make a card or layout.

You know how sometimes you sit at the computer with one leg under you, well last Friday that is what I was doing at work. My shoe slipped off, and when I picked it up, I noticed the neat design on the bottom of it. Thus the beginning of my Grand-daughters 20th Birthday Card. Her birthday is Sunday. It is so hard to believe that I have a child old enough to have a 20 year old. I know all of your are counting on your fingers now trying to figure out just how old I must be to have a granddaughter that age. *wink*

The first picture is of the bottom of my shoe with the stamping ink on it. I used a little mini ink pad by MS . The color was called Bamboo. I stamped the shoe design on regular White card stock 4 times, cut them out in the shape that they stamped out as. Arranged them into a butterfly, and used the Cricut Doodlecharm cartridge to cut out the body of the butterfly. I put some of MS Fine Crystal Glitter randomly on the wings and covered the body with it. I used a scrap piece of DP, and attached it all together. On the inside I put Spread your wings, which I thought was appropriate for a 20th Birthday. Thanks for looking.

Knowing your thing about shoes, I'm not surprized that you had one with a beautiful designed sole and with your talent created a beautiful card for Amber's 20th. Great job! Happy for you and your Mom.*

Obviously you were married at 10 and had a granddaughter by 20 - Only possible answer! ;)

I love your shoe idea - I was looking at my sneaker sole yesterday admiring the pattern - so I am glad I am not the only one ;) Might try your idea actually sounds fun :)
