Just a Penny Black Note

My Mom has recently gone to live in a nursing home so I want to send her a card or note once or twice a week especially on the weeks when I cannot come to visit.  She looked so good when I visited her last week end so I think she may thrive there - she is 94 and does pretty good except for that arthritis - I suppose if she was 20 years younger she would have knee replacement done.

Pink is my Mom's favorite color and she loves flowers.  Now you understand the theme for the card.

I have lots of white card stock that I am recycling from covers for commencement programs - they are just thrown away after the ceremony - so I pick up a bunch and recycle them.  This card is mostly from the recycled card stock.  It is a small card 4.25 x 3.  The stamps used are from Penny Black.  I inked the edges of a piece of the card stock so the pinks matched perfectly.  I added a little bling to the card for some extra contrast.

I am entering this in the challenge at Addicted to CAS.  The challenge is circles.  I have a few circles on this card.

Everyone have a great Saturday - today is a decompression day for me from work - because tomorrow I will go in for some quiet - gee I am able to focus - work time.
