It is almost Mother's Day!

This polka dot beauty is heading off to someone special, so I thought I would quickly show it to you before I mailed it off! Here are the specifics:

Cardstock: (Stamper's Select, Berry Sorbet) Papertrey Ink
Stamps: (Women of Life, Polka Dot Basics) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Berry Sorbet Palette) Papertrey Ink; (White Pigment) Joanns
Ribbon: (5/8" Swiss Dots Berry Sorbet) Papertrey Ink
Flower: Maya Road
Punch: (ticket corner punch) Stampin' Up
Embossing: (Swiss Dots Cuttlebug) Provocraft

I spent a long weekend in Virginia - oh is it gorgeous there! It is a total explosion of color there, everything is in bloom, including some of my favorites, like dogwoods and wisteria. I even saw tulips, which I was a little surprised by because I thought it wouldn't be cold for long enough down there. We looked at many houses, but we keep coming back to one neighborhood that we found on our first trip, so I guess that means we really like it! ;) I am hopeful that it will work out for us to live there.

Friday night I went to see Crowded House (again!). I must have the best husband in the world, because he took total control of the boys and I went into the throng of people! I took this with my iPhone:

I was probably about 8 people from the stage - but behind two REALLY tall men (see them?!). I had a blast, though, dancing and singing the night away! They played five new songs that I can't wait to hear again. Oh, Neil {sigh!}.

So, what else is going on? I'm happy to say that I won the April Sketch contest at the WorldWin Paper Blog . Here's the entry that I did:

I used lots of WorldWin products on this, as well as Spellbinders dies (Flower Creations #3 and the brand new Long Classic Rectangles). And notice the "Be Well" stamp (from Paper Source)- isn't it perfect!

I hope that you're having a perfect spring day. Be well.
