*Some Beautiful Weather*

WOW!!  We've had some beautiful sunny and warm weather here in Calgary the last few days!  Talk about totally enjoyable!  It's so hard to believe that it's only the end of April!  We have one more nice day forecast for tomorrow and then it turns cold and wet for a few days....  cold sucks, but wet is good... we need things to start greening up naturally!

I'm hoping to get a bit of creating done today... I am slowly running out of things to share with you all again!!!  It's been tough the last few days... I want to create but with news from my Mom's nurse that the symptoms she is showing right now are a sign that the disease is progressing and things are closer than we want them to be, my creative brain is overwhelmed by my emotional brain.

This is the card I made before I went off to see Mom for Easter... and I gave it to Mom for her birthday...  I got the idea from my friend Irene (I wish she had a blog!)
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Rose Red
*Patterned Paper:  Stampin' Up!
*Images:  PaperTreyInk Signature Greetings (on the inside that you can't see); Impress Rubberstamps
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Rose Red, Bashful Blue; VersaFine Onyx Black
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities
*Embellishments:  Michael's Bridal Flowers; Kaiser Pearls

This card opens by pulling the left and right sides away from each other... it's SO cool!  I will definitely make more cards like this.
