Grandma's Mother's Day card

Has anyone seen the new (I think?) Designer Mat Pads from K&Company that they have at Michael's these days? I just *love* them! The papers are heavy-duty, textured and oooh so pretty! The DS paper on this card is from the "Roam" pad - just gorgeous! I made this little card for my grandma for Mother's Day. Grammy loves birds, so I used the retired Feathered Hope set that I bought a while back, specifically for making cards for her! I also used some lace crocheted (I guess?) ribbon and pearls, thought they were both somewhat grandmotherly. I'm still having lots of fun coloring with my Prismacolors & gamsol, but I think my watercolor wonder crayons are starting to feel neglected on the shelf, so I better pay them some attention soon. :-) I'm not sure this card will survive the trip via the US Postal Service up to Michigan - I'm thinking a padded envelope may be in order or Grammy may receive a card with little lost pearls floating around the envelope! But anyway - I'll get this and my mom's rose card below in the mail tomorrow, and maybe *for once* I'll actually get cards to people on time! It's so sad how rarely I manage to send cards out to people, even though I often intend to! What's the saying? Something about the cobbler whose kids have no shoes?? That's me. :-( Or at least the old me, it's been one of my new goals lately to send out more cards!! (but I did just miss my friend Renee's birthday last weekend, darn it! But I was definitely thinking of you Renee!!) Ok I'm starting to ramble - thanks for looking & have a great night!
