Mothers Day card/treat - Lawnscaping #9 entry

Hi there friends! Thank God Monday’s over. I got horrible news yesterday. Shook me to something really depressing. Sadness I did not expect. Not yet. I can’t really share, it’s not about me or a family member, and so I don’t think it’s appropriate for the blog. But would you please, please, keep my boss and his wife in your prayers? Jim and Linda. Please. Yesterday will not go down in history as the best day ever for me. Or anyone in my office for that matter :(.
Today I wanted to share a card/mini project. I’m going to enter this one into the Lawnscaping #9 Challenge
I know it’s not for a birthday/birthday party or anything, but it’s bight and fun & I thought it’s be a cute little entry. I’m just so overwhelmed between a sicky little one, and projects up the YOU KNOW WHAT, that this week this is the best I could do. I’m celebrating my Grandma. It’s a Mother’s Day card & Tea Bag Holder for my her.

I got the idea for the Tea Bag Holder over on the Lawn Fawn Blog HERE & I knew I HAD to give it a try. Kelly Marie also did a “how to” video the next day - you can find that HERE. I made mine before the tutorial - her written instructions were awesome. I knew I’d have to give it a try... I come from a long line of tea drinkers ;). My Grandma swears by green tea. I just so happened to have some, so I thought this’d be a perfect little thing that’d make her smile. I also made them for my mom, mother-in-law and sister-in-laws as well.

Hey, when I really like something, I go for it :D. Kelly Marie always has the BEST ideas!! I seriously can not imagine how much creativity is just stuck in that head of hers, waiting to burst out!

For my card, I used several Lawn Fawn Sets: Say Cheese (Polaroid, smiley sun & sun burst), Fly Free (larger birdie), Bannerific (2 smaller birdies), Harold’s ABCs (for the sentiment), and Sophie’s Sentiments (for the splashes). The paper is October Afternoon’s “Ducks in a Row” which I’ve had in my stash FOR-EVAH!! I’ve made so many projects from this line - and I’ve still got left-overs!

I finished the card off with some yellow twine, from The Twinery, and a lovely Papertrey Ink buttons - their buttons are the stinkin’ best!!!

Well, that’s all for me today. Please don’t forget those prayers for my boss & his wife - they are MUCH needed. I hope you have a great day!
