2 New Favorites

I am really liking the "word" feature on the Pagoda cartridge.  This is the 2nd mothers day card I have made.  There are lots of great card cuts with a word on the bottom.  Some include-friend, daughter, happiness and love to name a few.  If you are like me you will barely be able to see the image in the handbook, unless you bring out the strong reading glasses.  Now my second new favorite is the "Lemon Flower Stack" and matching plain Matstack from DCWV.  I don't usually use a lot of yellow and green in my projects.  I like the color combos in this pack so much that I am thinking of redecorating my studio.  I love this cut from "A Child's Year"  My I have 2 girls and a boy.  My youngest daughter always wore a funny little ponny tail on top of her head and my oldest daughter had her hair like the middle child.  My mom is going to love this card  Also in my family there were three of us. Me, my brother and sister.  Sadly, my sister passed away 8 years ago.  I know this will remind my mom of when we were little
