*Happy Mother's Day*

I am a bad daughter. No, I don't really believe that, but I wasn't a good daughter today. My Mom, my oldest sister and my niece are all in Amsterdam right now and while I thought I should make a call to my Mom at her friends' house, I didn't get around to doing it... and since the time difference is 7 or 8 hours, I can't cal now.

I know Mom knows I was thinking about her today... but I still feel a little bad. I just hope she is having an absolutely amazing time visiting with papercrafting friends that she met online. She and my sister went out there this fall but Mom just spent the day with her online friends.... this time Heather dropped Mom off to stay with the friends for a week. I am sure they are having a fantastic time!

I have had a very nice Mother's Day weekend... Friday night the CalGals were over to play. Saturday night Bruce and I and 9 of our friends went to our favourite hole in the wall for wings and then back to visit at a friends' house. This morning I got to sleep in while Bruce and the boys got up and started preparing our annual Mother's Day Brunch. We had Bruce's Mom and her husband over as well as Bruce's brother and his wife and the other brother. Bruce and the boyz put out an amazing spread that included scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, toast, hashbrowns, bacon, waffles and fresh fruit. The food was delicious and the company enjoyable! After visiting for a while, our company left and we enjoyed "Marley and Me" which was one of the DVDs I got as gifts today. We went to The Keg for dinner and even enjoyed a Billy Miner Pie for desert (my favourite!). We are now sitting back and watching "The Amazing Race"

The only ways today could have been better would have been to have my Mom here and to have not been fighting a nasty headache all day. I am hoping to get in for a massage tomorrow.

I created this card for a "mingle" on a YahooGroup I am on called CreativeCuttleBuggers. The group is for people who love their Cuttlebug... please don't tell them that I've switched to a Big Shot LOL!!

The April theme was a Mother's Day card. I pulled out the trusty pink and green Bazzill Bling cardstock and had some fun with my Nestabilities. I even used my border embossing folders for the first time (despite having had them for months).

The card needed a little something more so I added some glittered brads that I had in my stash that matched the colours almost perfectly.

I didn't actually send this card to my Mom... I bought her a card because I wanted a card that said something "perfect"... Heather was a doll and took my card and gift to Amsterdam to give them to Mom on Mother's Day for me.

I am going to go back to paying attention to the TV show... of the three teams still in the race, there is one team I don't want to win... I'd be happy with either of the other two teams winning.

I'm kind of disappointed that all of the TV Season Finales are this week... I am a total TV addict and miss my shows over the summer!

Thanks for coming by to visit!
