A Lovely Mother's Day

Warning:  this post is full of pictures!  Not only do I have the weekly Diva challenge for you but also some RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) I've received recently that made my day!  Enjoy!
 Here is my Diva card using the color combo Soft Suede, So Saffron and Regal Rose.  I've also employed the fabulous sketch by Card Patterns
Here's a peek at the inside as well.  I enjoyed working with the Medallion background stamp again- it's been awhile.  Also, the Big Shot came in handy with the Framed Tulips embossing folder as well as the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the Beautiful Wings embosslit for the butterlflies inside and out.

This is a birthday card I found in my mailbox from my good pal and frequent virtual stampin' buddy, Lisa Henke!  Isn't it beautiful?!  It did have a rhinestone in the center of that bottom flower when I opened it but lost it from the mailbox to here. 

Here's another from Lisa who thought of me and cheered me up when I needed it most.  Perfect timing and friendship to make a gal perk up! 

And to make me feel even more special, this card and the next both arrived from perfect strangers who just send RAKs out of the kindness of their hearts!  This is from Joan aka Smileyj on Splitcoast...  thank you Joan!  Oops, looks like the other one didn't load.  I'll work on that and see if I can't show you tomorrow. 

Here is the DCBD color challenge for this week if you are inclined to play along.  We'd love to have you join us!  Heck, we might even choose your card to feature on our weekly "Featured Artist" post. 

Ooh, almost forgot.  My before and after bathroom redo pictures...  well, I've got them taken just need to upload.  Any last minute gueses as to what color it is?  I'll work on that post for tomorrow... my power is supposed to be out this morning so I feel like I'm working on borrowed time as it is or else I'd just add them right now.   

Thanks for stopping by!
