Im so happy it is Friday because I am on my way to visit my daughter and grandsons!!
 My niece, sister and I are going. Her husband is out to sea right now, we
 are all going to celebrate Mothers Day together so hope this post goes
 off with out a hitch!Our TTSTVchallenge is brought to us by Pam Stang and it  is to
stamp using acrylic paint  instead of ink.

 I applied the paint to my
stamp then whiffed it with water also whiffed my paper then stamped it
. I was going for a water colored look.
 It isnt quite as much as I expected but the petals are not solid,
just outlines so couldnt run too much. Cut it out with a Spellbinder  floral 
oval die.I love the diamond print and thought it made a fun background
. A couple layers,embossing  fishtail and string to add a little interest.
 The butterfly and sentiment is cut from vellum. A voila all done!
Used the  Black Eyed Susan Set & Island Life Set for the sentiment.
I will be around to visit when I get home. Its about a 71/2 hr
 drive and we have to come home on Sunday so what little time we have there
we will be spending together, probably wont be on the computer.
 Hope you all have a great weekend
 and for those who are celebrating Monther's Day have a GREAT one!
