fetter: noun

 a chain or shackle for the feet
or
 something that confines : restraint
 
 
I am looking forward to freeing myself from the fetters of making Mother's Day cards!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#29 of 30 Mother's Day cards in 30 days
( almost finished, working on the display for them now!! )
 
 
Cricut - Don Juan cartridge, p. 57 ( stitched )
Traveling Typewriter - font

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I always like to add seasonal birthday cards into the regular birthday cards that I sell on a regular basis, so I made this one and am entering it into:

Bitten by the Bug - Egg~ceptional Easter Egg challenge


Cricut - Paisley cartridge, p. 40 (butterfly)
Cricut Craft Room - Easter Seasonal cartridge
 ( to create base card and then card front and base )
Ranger - stickles
Making Memories - rub on sentiment

Love your Sigh card! You find the most wonderfully funny sentiments! I know my mom (had 6 of us) would love one like that...Queen of the sighs!

Alison Scott said...

Brilliant card. Love the sentiment. This is just like being at home when Jennifer and Ellie visit. She keeps telling me that she catches herself sounding just like me when she was small. LOL

Fab makes as always. Sorry I've been quiet, had a few bad weeks but hopefully now I'm getting lots of rest and an increase in meds I'll be back to my normal chatty self! Take care Zo xx

Good grief. I can't believe I've been gone from the internet for so long, but apparently I have missed more than a few posts. Loved the gargoyles and boobs (grin). And of course the shots of architecture and the staircase at Biltmore.

And that paint brush was incredible. I can't believe how much time you spent on it. I was especially fond of the tape.

Of course, I'm very impressed by all those cards. I'm sure you are doing well at the shop where you sell them. All that stitching must take awhile, too. Sorry I've been away so long. I was surprised how long it took me to catch up.

Hope you have an awesome day. After all, you are nearly finished with your 30 days!
