Just Mom!

Oh my goodness! Have you seen this week's A Muse newsletter? Such GREAT ideas in there. I'm sure to CASE some of those! Haven't signed up yet? It's easy - sign up is free, then once a week an email comes right to your inbox with the Card of the Week, the NEW Oldies but Goodies section, the ideas for Masculine cards, the featured stamps, classes around town, and even a stamping tip! ALL FOR FREE!!! Go signup today - treat yourself... you'll be glad you did.

Well, I am so excited and honored to have two cards in the newsletter this week. The first is for the Oldies but Goodies section. This month the Oldies but Goodies section is hosted by my friend and fellow instructor, Michelle Clark. She picks out what stamp we are to use and then we go forth and make something! This week she picked SUPER WOMAN! That is certainly a must-have stamp. She's so useful! In fact, we used to at my A Muse class this morning. I'll share that card later next week! But for today, I wanted to show you my card from the newsletter.

I was trying to think of something "unique" to do with her and this popped into my head. As you know, I'm a SAHM of two smallish boys ... and my other SAHM friends and I always talk about how we get so much done in short spurts of time, etc. That alone got me thinking about how moms are SO busy all the time. It's because we do so many jobs and play so many roles... That's where the inspiration came from.... and the A Muse stamps fit in so well for this idea...

All images and notecards by A Muse Artstamps; Copics; Spicas in pink and Melon; Copic Black Multiliner; Foam tape

Just for fun I thought I'd list the images that mom can be:
Superwoman
Dr. Blackwell
Flower Girl
Shopper
Elyse
Little Girl
Runner
Kissing Couple
Rainy Day Lisa
Florence
(and then the "just because" stamp with only the "just" inked up)

I hope you like this card. It was certainly fun to make it!
