Gingham Gala Well Written Stitched Shapes

I made this card on Wednesday.  That would be the 
day that temps were below zero and windchill was
-27º.   My calendar indicated my monthly apt for
my hair color.  I likely could have kept the apt,
but I drive home with wet hair, wrapped in a plastic
hair net.  It's a long story, but I use chemical free
organic henna hair dye.  Given the two step process,
 I do the final rinse at home.   I just could not tempt the
fates, by driving home 20 miles with
a wet head, covered with henna hair dye.

So, I spent part of the day enjoying some stamping 
time.  It was very pleasant, and I managed to create
some cards for family birthday packs and someone
undergoing breast cancer surgery.

Today also happens to be my Mom's 90th birthday.
This is not the card that I sent to her, but I needed to
post a birthday card today, in her honor!

This card used a selection of Occasions Catalog Products:
-Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper on page 35
-Well Written Framelits Dies on page 27

Plus the following from the Annual Catty:
-Stitched Shapes Framelits on page 220
- Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page 223

I like making use of those pesky scraps of Designer Series Paper. 
 I just glued the scraps to a piece of cardstock and then cut it out
with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Die.
