It's A Whole Week For Mom!

Hello friends! Welcome to another fabulous week here with the Beary Scrappy Gals. We're all atwitter with excitement right now. Not only do we have some fabulous blog candy on offer through May 5th, next week we have a new designer joining us *and* we start our bi-weekly challenges to *you*! Whoo hoo! We feel very fortunate to have each and every one of you visit us, and hope you can play along in our challenges, too.

This week we're honoring Mom with a Mother's Day theme. Throughout the week our designers will share their projects, so be sure to check back daily. Our own blog "mom", Kimm, will even share her project!

I'll be sending this card to my lovely mother-in-law, Joyce. When it come's to mothers-in-law, I hit the jackpot with her. She's a very kind and generous person, and is fun to hang around. :) (And no, I'm not just saying that because I know what I'm getting for my birthday next month! *grin*)


The gray flowers in the top left corner and along the bottom are actually a subtle metallic finish. In this second photo, you can see the shiny parts of this delicious SEI Poppy paper.


Here's an inside view. It might not be news to any of you, but I just discovered I could use my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the 5.5 x 5.5" Bazzill paper. I ran it through my Spellbinder Wizard once, then moved the unembossed section into the folder, lining up the already-embossed dots with the folder. I'm pretty sure it will work on all folders with a repeating pattern. Yay!
