Botanical Bookmark Card

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. It's been pretty busy around the house. Saturday was my birthday and my nephew's graduation party. Then on Sunday my "baby boy" graduated High School...*sniff* It doesn't seem that long ago that we were sending him off to Kindergarten. My husband is on vacation all this week and we are trying to get some work done around here. Actually...right now I'm supposed to be "getting ready" to head out to Home Depot to buy some paint & stain, but I'm sneaking on the computer so I can share this card.
I used a couple of my favorite retired sets to make this - Still Life Stems and Botanicals, along with a new set from the Occasions Mini - Oval All. The pocket was made using card stock vellum which I ran through the Big Shot with the swirly texturz plate. Colors used are: Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss & Elegant Eggplant.

Here's a couple photos taken on Sunday. It turned out to be a beautiful day, with only a few sprinkles, so the commencements were held outdoors so it was really nice.

Me & my "little guy".
I also wanted to share the gorgeous quilted tote my Mom made for me for my birthday.
Isn't is cute? She does such beautiful work. The inside has lots of pockets for cell phone, keys etc...I LOVE it!

Well, I better run before my hubby wonders what happened to me! Have a great day!
