Good morning! I’ve got a few things for you today, but I will be back a little later. First, it is Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker! A few of you have emailed me this week and said that today will be your first Treasure Hunt! Have fun shopping and then let me know what you got. You can find the first clue and all deets on the Rubbernecker Home Page. Kittie and Broni both are offering up some Rubbernecker Blog Candy today and you will want to pop over to their blogs to check it out.
Second, I just found out last night that Rubbernecker needs some help at the Hartford, Connecticut show. If you are available July 12-13 and would like to work in the Rubbernecker Booth at the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo, please send me an email or leave a comment on this post.
I haven’t been able to squeeze in a Color Challenge for a few weeks now, so I’m hoping to get to do the SCS Challenge today and will be back to edit my post.
Well, I’m back! Today are Primary Elections here in Indiana, and I wanted to make sure that I got out to vote. Mallory went with me, since this is the very first election she could participate in. It was rather exciting for me to be with my youngest daughter the first time she voted. We went over the ballot in the paper before we left so that she would know how to mark it (not who to vote for, but what she needed to do). I’m definitely a proud mom today!
When we got home, the SCS Color Challenge had been posted, and I was ready to go to work. The colors today, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Lovely Lilac, at first had me stumped. Then I remembered that I needed to make one more Mother’s Day card, the one that I myself would send to my mother.
The image was stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink and then colored with Copic Markers. The edges were sponged with Lake Mist. To make the background panel, I chose Certainly Celery, and stamped the same flower image in Distress Embossing Ink. Once that had dried, I stamped a second background of script in Lake Mist over the flowers. For the sentiment, I stamped the script background on white and then stamped the sentiment over the top and cut it out with rectangle Nestabilities. For inside of the card, I picked a white linen paper and stamped the sentiment “God could not everywhere, and therefore he made Mothers.”

I hope each of you have a wonderful afternoon. I can’t decide if I’m gonna run some errands or go back to the stamp room.
Oh and right as I was finishing up this post, I got email notification from Leslie Miller’s Blog, Running with Scissors. Leslie used the same stamp today and both cards are entirely different! You’ve got to check out her card.
