Technique time with Pagoda

hi everyone!

did you have a good mother’s day – either as the mom or with your mom?!  i got the BEST gifts – my oldest son (19) has been out on his own for 6 months now and he SENT ME A GIFT!!!  the first season of desperate housewives – i never watched it so it will give me something to watch when i am up at 4am!  then when i got up this morning there was a note on my computer that said click play – it was a you tube video of a song by good charlotte about a singll mom and how the kid loves her and is thnakful for her – i could have cried!!  that was from trev – the 17 year old.  then i also had an email from drake saying happy mother’s day.  and they did all this all by themselves – we were always on our own so there was never really much in the way of any mother’s day stuff what with no other adult around to lead the way.  of course they would always make me something in school.  one year trev made me a card with a blue ribbon on the front.  inside the writing prompt was i have the best mother in the world because….and trev put she makes me chicken.  i was like WOW really?  all these years of sacrifice and all i had to do was make you chicken???  HAHHAHHAH!!

hubby gave me the best gift you can give a mother of a small child – the whole day to myself! of COURSE i spent it in my craft room!  i got alot of stuff done that was totally NOT on any to do list or part of any obligations.

One thing I did was to play with my Cricut Pagoda cartridge some more which i have been really wanting to do!  in addition i got this GREAT new book called Texure Effects for Rubber Stamping – it ROCKS!!! it is SO ME!!  so here is a card set i created:

they are all very clean and simple – i just couldn’t cover up the neat backgrounds i made for three of them!  then i ran out of white glossy cardstock 😛  so the fourth one is just a cuttlebug background with the KOI from the Asian Bundle.  This Summer Provocraft will be releasing several more bundles designed to pair up with several cartridges – BRILLIANT!!!!  SO here are the cards up close:

i have to say i LOVE this cartridge and i LOVE this book!!!  i highly recommend both of them!  this cartridge is also excellent for those always difficult masculiine cards and stuff!

ok that’s all you’re gettin outta me!  tomorrow is hubby’s bday so pezzy and i will be building a cake and such!  hee heee!
