A pinwheel for Mom

Here is another take on a pinwheel card. It is similar to one I made a couple of weeks ago, but this time I used different papers, added some zigzag stitching around the edges and some NEW buttons from CTMH! I LOVE these new buttons. They have been sitting in my stash for a number of weeks and now that I popped them open I realize I already need more! lol

Little Red Wagon is looking for Mother's Day cards this week and I think this one fits the bill.

Well, I was greeted this morning, on the second of May, with tiny "balls" of snow as I walked out to my car to head to work. At least it didn't accumulate! I am trying so hard not to complain about this icky fall-like weather, but it is so hard! Spring will come sooner or later, it just has to! (self pep-talk!)

I have sore muscles today after "swimming" with Pickle Pants yesterday. We weren't really doing much swimming - yours truly was the sea monster from "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" (the book we are currently working on) and he was Eustace fighting me - it entailed lots of me "throwing" or pulling him around on a pool noodle - which means that every muscle in my upper body including my abs are sore today - I guess at least I got a bit of a workout from all that role playing! lol

I'll be back tomorrow with - gasp - a layout! I put together a fun layout using CTMH's promo in honour of National Scrapbooking month.......stay tuned. :)

Wishing you all a great start to the week! Here's hoping that spring is greeting you at your doorstep!

p.s. Thanks so much to those who took a minute to stop by Chester's blog and leave a comment - you made his day!

  1. Pretty the paper! I need to try one of these cards!

  2. Hey Narna (or should that be Sea Monster?!)
    Love this card, I really must try out one of these......your buttons are very yummy and I can see why you "need" more already!
    I hope those muscles stop aching soon!

    PS why am I up at 2.30am GMT???!! Can't sleep. So annoying!

  3. I love this pinwheel card! The stitching around it is just fabulous, as are your paper choices. Love the little buttons on the corners, too. I passed along an award to you on my blog. :)
