Mother's Day card

A little late on my Mother's Day card this year (at least posting it).  I found a teapot easel card that I fell in love with but this teacup card caught my eye.  This one is from the Silhouette store.  No instructions, but I think I figured it out OK.  I added a small, embossed tag to look like the teabag label and the brad so it would stand up.  Sorry about the picture quality, I used my phone, at night, when I was leaving my Mom's because i forgot to take a pic ahead of time.

Mea Culpa

I have been in absentia for the beginning part of this year.  I would love to say it was because I was in mourning for the broncos (that didn't capitalize but I'm going to keep it because they need to be punished) but really it's because I let other things take some precedence.  You probably don't know me, but i am morbidly obese and my sedentary lifestyle was going to kill me.  When my wii fit board said I was too fat to use it...well, wake up call.  Since then, I have counted calories and worked out and I am down 43 pounds.  I have 140 to go, but it's looking possible now.  I feel much healthier and I don't hide in my house as much.  My husband had an injury at work and was out for a bit, so that also occupied my time.  OK, enough about me, on with the blog. 

Today's card will be used as a thank you card, but really it could be for anything.  I do not have Memory Box dies, but I cloned their Leaf Canopy on to my Silhouette.  I also found a generic leafless tree clip art for the trunk. I didn't want to use a sentiment mainly because I just want the motif to stand for itself.  Enjoy and as always, if you have any questions about supplies, let me know.

PS- I had to share this pic of my youngest kitty, Lady, "helping me".  When you see little grey and black hairs in my pictures, this is one of the culprits.  I would have a pic of my black kitty, Liberty, but she is currently hiding in the closet :)
