Mommy's Card

I know I have made promises to myself to craft and do something fun and although I haven’t kept up with the blog don’t worry I have been keeping up with doing something "good" each day. Honestly. I'm not just sitting around doing nothing, I’ve been making progress in my house, ripping out rugs and getting things organized which is a definite plus. Such good progress in fact that I was able to make a card for my mommy even though her birthday isn't until the end of the month!!!!! I thought my mom would definitely get a kick out of the vellum page quote "It's hard to raise a family especially in the morning." I mean wouldn't she know best. :)
The flowers were cut from paper I had left over from a layout and the ribbon was chosen to match her scrapbook page which featured her and her fave, Kermie, eyelets were punched into the vellum to secure it to the card and viola' we have a homemade card especially for Mom. One craft down and more lovely possibilities ahead.
I'm finding it easier to make cards then to make scrapbook pages and I've figured out why, my scrapbook page will live forever in my album whereas my card is given away and poof there goes my memory of it, but the page will live on in my home so if I don't get it right I'll agonize over it forever. Anyone else out there feel my pain or am I in this predicament alone?
