Hmm Happy Mother's Day?

Now if you are in North America you will probably not understand my question, but as I made this to send to my MIL in March for Mothering Sunday in England you will understand that my question is really me scratching my head that it took me so long to upload, edit and post it using my software (check out that snazzy watermark! WooHoo! I'm only years behind the times!). *catches breath after that run-on sentence*

Right now down to the nitty gritty I have had these 6x6 had to have them K&Co paper stacks for years! and I have USED THEM! is it party time or what?  Part of the issue is that they were in my notorious "safe place", you know that place where you put something to keep it safe and then promptly forget where it is.  I have decided that since my supplies take up an entire pie safe (double wardrobe size for those that measure that way) that I need to use what I have and yes I have donated some things but I'm a hoarder and I prefer to force myself to use it.  If I give it away I have no ownership of my purchasing.  Oh dear I have digressed a bit, anyway I decided to 3D decoupage three of the papers into a card for my mother in law and stamp the sentiment in the middle, it probably would have been quicker to just stamp a card from scratch with all those small cuts but I was pleased with the outcome even if I couldnt' find an envelope to fit it...in the end I had to throw it in the padded envelope with her present and pray for the best.

I assure you the usage of those three sheets of 6x6 for the layers have made a dent in my supplies! LOL!

I jumped over here from Splitcoast Stampers and just had to make a comment. Pretty card! I'm a craft hoarder too! :)
