You're Never Too Old........PPA76.......



My refrigerator door has been an "art" gallery as long as I can remember - and I bet yours is too! This card (using Button Button and a sentiment from Curly Cute) was designed for Pals Paper Arts color challenge and will soon be part of a refrigerator display.  My mother winters in Florida so some of my cards will head south the next few months.  Even though my mother loves her tropical vacation she still enjoys mail from home.  And even though I am long past childhood, I still enjoy the fact that my mother hangs my work on her refrigerator!

Linda Love your card today.
I will repeat myself by saying I can't believe the different looks achieved by the same colors in the DT.
These colors are amazing and I hope to play along.

Linda, this is such a whimsical and pretty card; no wonder your mom still hangs your artwork! My mom (who lives in Houston; I live in NJ) keeps all my cards in a pretty box. It's nice to have a mom who appreciates your work, isn't it?? Have a great day.

You Mom will be proud!

Linda, I ADORE this!! I love how you've used the button set and how the circles on the DSP echo the buttons perfectly. Love the lace and the layout is divine! A perfect addition to your mom's art gallery--how sweet! :-)

What a great card and mother! I always adore the little details on your cards that make them perfect ... the rounded corners, the spiral punch, and the decorated bow.

Your mom must surely be proud of your creations, they are always so wonderful. My mom dug out a bag the other day that had all the cards I sent her and my dad since I started stamping. Some were awful but fun to go through again. Love what you did with the Buttons, Buttons. I still haven't tried this stamp set, it sits on my shelf!

Linda, I've left something at my blog for you: http://colleen-dietrichdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/01/blog-award-from-ruby.html

Happy New Year!

I'm sure that my refrigerator would still be an art gallery if we hadn't matched the wood on our cabinets when we re-modeled ten years ago! But I do have my own magnet boards in my stamping room for my gallery! Thanks for reminding me of days gone by. Your mom is lucky! I love real mail, too!

Kim said...
