Sunny Saturday

It's another beautiful day here in sunny Las Vegas.  Our son has a soccer game today, but I still can't go.  I just LOVE watching him play, but the field where his games are played is on the far back side of the park, which is MUCH too far for me to hobble on my crutches.  And if, heaven forbid, I were to need to use the restroom facilities, they are even farther away yet.  So until I can walk, I must remain at home and cheer him on from the couch.  His team is doing really well again this season.

I was visiting my blog friend, Melissa Bove today and learned about a great challenge over at Crafty Secrets Blog and decided I would play along.  Since I own only one Crafty Secrets stamp set, it was pretty clear to me the theme I had to use.  I used their Material Girl stamp set.  This is my card.

Here is the link to the Crafty Secrets Blog and challenge: - The 2nd Crafty Secrets Linky Party - I used the Material Girl Stamp Set by Crafty Secrets

I'm also entering this card in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show.  Here is that link: - Simon Says Stamp and Show Your Favourite Stamp

I would like to wish all of you Moms out there a very Happy Mothers' Day.  I know that I will be missing my Mom tomorrow, but will call and visit with her on the phone.  I get to see her in June, and I'm already looking forward our special time together.  If you are unable to be with your Mom tomorrow, for whatever reason, I hope you will take time to thank God for her influence in your life.  If you are blessed enough to be able to spend the day with her, I encourage you to let her know how much you love her.  I love that saying, "Never use time or words carelessly; as they can never be taken back".  Make the most of each day.

Thanks for stopping by.
