Prepping for a busy weekend

I have been working on my project for my Organizer Certification this week. I finally have it done and in the mail. What a load that takes off my mind! Of course, as you all know...there is always something ready to jump on and fill any holes in the load! I have a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society this Saturday at the Cocoa Beach High School Cafeteria from 11am til 5, and then a speaking gig for organizing at the local MOPS group on Monday morning. Never a dull moment! I hope to see some of you during one or both of these events.
I did grab some stamping time today to make my mom a birthday card. Don't look mom! I did a bit of a non tradition color scheme on this. I mean, for my mom I usually do something uber pretty or frilly, but I really wanted to use some more of this awesome DSP from the new level 3 hostess set in the new catalog. I love it! Of course, my first choice when it comes to Old Olive is to pair it with Eggplant. I've always loved that color combo! I finally used my new Party Hearty stamp set. Yes, I have stamps I haven't even used. But, I will!! I added some Summer Sun to the olive and eggplant and a Build a Brad to the middle of the B. I admit I added a bit of girly-ness with the scalloped vellum under the DSP, but other than that...not too girly! I think mom will like it....but she will most likely like what comes with it better! No, I'm not spoiling THAT surprise too! She will have to wait!
I have a great scrap page to share tomorrow....assuming I get my pictures on it! We did it last week at my stamp a stack and scrap. It uses some of the new chipboard pieces from the new Catalog. I love them! I have a few kits left over for sale so, be sure to check back!

What a great birthday card. I'm sure your mom will love it. Wish I was down in FL right now. Even though you all are cold it is not as bad as up in NC.
