Flutterby Special

Two posts in two days? There's some excitement here on the old blog-o this week! I know I haven't been here for a while. I was dealing with a few personal issues that left the mojo in a ditch. Not to mention a lost camera battery so photography was also on hold.

Then, wonder of wonders, I learned my mom was being honored for her contributions to education over the course of her career. So it was off to Jamaica for some family time and a little "sun in the fun". I got to see my sister and her kiddos, and of course, watch my mom receive her award. At this point, the camera battery had been found and charged and... left at home! LOL. Luckily I had my phone and my momma's camera so I was still able to get some photos of the happy event. Hurray. Hurray. But... if I share those photos I may lose "preferred daughter status", so here are a few cards instead.

The sentiment on this first card is absolutely meant for my amazing mom. I feel so lucky to have her in my life. And I hope I make her feel the same - when I'm not making her crazy. LOL.

I tried a little inlaid die-cutting using the SSS Devonshire and Paulina butterfly dies, white cardstock, and my Touch Twin markers. There is also some Distress inking and a|s Splash! spray on the top panel.

Here's my second attempt:

And, yes, this one also goes out to a very special lady. Love you momma!
